had I not paid for it, the DVD might go in the dumpster with the baby...
28 April 2006 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Recently watched the DVD Troma released of this movie. It wasn't at all what I thought it would be: something more like Sewage Baby. It's more like Twenty Bucks, except with a baby instead of a twenty dollar bill.

The sound quality is unfortunately pretty bad. A lot of the dialog is missed, and without it, there's not much to follow.

A woman is shot at and climbs some stairs. How she relates to the rest of the movie isn't clear. Two women do some crack; the fat one announces she's having a baby. The other one helps deliver with the use of a chef's knife. Somehow she delivers without ever taking her shorts off. The baby is dumped in a dumpster after an altercation with a gang. A guy in a bar discovers it after a hooker starts blowing him in the alley. A pimp shoots him, and he and the baby are dumped into a cab.

Somehow the baby keeps winding up with other people, but it's not always clear how it gets from place to place. Maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention, or I missed something in the dialog. There's also a pale man in black who wanders through some of the scenes; he's reminiscent of the Thorn characters from the Halloween series to some extent. He seems to be supernatural, although he kills people in conventional ways.

There is some nudity in the movie, for those looking for that. Not a whole lot of blood, but some. It plays more like a drama than a horror movie, despite the deaths and weird figure in black.

I listened to some of the commentary track at the beginning and end of the movie to see if it shed any light on the story or what they were aiming for with the movie. They didn't touch on that in what I listed to at all, unfortunately. It wasn't interesting enough for me to listen to the rest.

The DVD has a number of trailers on it; Poultrygeist looks like it will be fun. There's also a music video for a Russian band's song "Wild Man" in which Troma head honcho Lloyd Kaufman stars as a blind man stumbling through a bar in which the band is playing. The Toxic Avenger shows up a couple times, and there's a sex scene and a shooting spree, so it's fairly Tromatic. The music is fairly catchy, and at least some of the lyrics are in English, like the chorus "Wild man in big city, wild man empty heart."
