A Great Ultra-Violent Aussie film, 15 September 2005
Author: Clayton Moore from Omaha, NE

"Robert Kennedy said: 'Every society gets the kind of criminal it deserves.' Well, congratulations, Australia, you've earned us." – Razor Eaters. Shannon Young's Razor Eaters played at the Kansas Film Festival on 09/09/05. I didn't know much about it going in but I was blown away. Shannon Young and the detective, Paul Moder were in attendance and the Q&A was terrific. As an ultra violent low budget feature from Austrilia the story was terrific. Basically 5 criminals decide to take anarchistic vengeance upon society. They rampage throughout Melbourne videotaping their crimes and taunting the cops. Interesting twist; they decide to pay back criminals (except for the occasional football player , an advertising executive, a Parking Clerk and a Chinese girl). Regardless they swore to kill one drug dealer per day until the cops catch them. The movie gave a very plausible account of how they became anti-heroes. In fact in one scene they order T-shirts and then beat the guy when he tries to get paid. Afterwards he is proud to be beaten by the Razor Eaters and makes money by selling T-shirts (of course such a thing couldn't happen in America - why you would need to be a washed-up singer and sleep with 8 year old boys to get that kind of fame). A couple of final points. The Detective is a very interesting character. He is not a very good cop, not a lot of friends on the force, under suspicion for a "questionable" shooting. But he does track them down and well, enough said.

Razor Eaters is a great ultra-violent film. See it. BTW - The gang is called Razor Eaters for two reasons. The first is they are named after a true life monster who used to make some of his 19 victims eat razor blades. The second; the initials of all five members first names.
