The Low-Budget Australian Version of Natural Born Killers, 9 October 2010
Author: Navajas from Mystery, FU

The titular Razor Eaters are a gang of Australian hooligans who decide to terrorize civilization and film their exploits, loosely based on a similar gang that rampaged through Melbourne. Their crimes are cruel and brutal. They kill without mercy. They burn people alive. And they even have official t-shirts.

Perhaps half of the movie focuses on the Razor Eaters, and the other half follows the hardened cop, Detective Danny Berdan (Paul Moder), who is trying to track them down. As with Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers, both the detective and the nation itself follows the activities of the gang through the video tapes they leave behind. While many are terrified of the gang, others support their activities, in part because many of their crimes are committed against other criminals, although they use a very broad definition of the term criminal to include people they just don't like. For example, they promise to target drug dealers, but end up killing people for driving like idiots and having loud car stereos. They've also got issues against the media and those who create it, but by the end of the movie it becomes apparent that they are very much enjoying being a part of that media.

It should be noted that, while the actual segments that were filmed by the gang have a documentary feel to them (with the camera moving around all over the place), most of the movie is not shot this way. Personally, I think this gives the movie a more "realistic", true-to-life feel without rendering the entire film unwatchable.

I bought this movie as part of a four-movie set out of the bargain bin at a local department store, along with two other independent movies of the 2000's (and, for some reason, Night of the Living Dead, a movie that gets tacked on to just about any "horror" collection as filler). This is probably the best of the set. Honestly, I think it's worth watching for virtually everyone, but those fans of extreme cinema living down under should definitely consider checking it out.
