hard to sit through but gory
21 May 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Andrew Copp, the director isn't unknown to me. This is his first attempt to make a movie. the first which means, no budget. Copp is known for his brutality used in his flicks. Here having almost no money he used stock footage of some nasty scene's to shock people from Vietnam, most I have seen earlier (brutal executions).

Be advised that the quality is very low because it was shot on super 8 and 16mm. There's a lot of gore for the geeks out there but I must warn you due the stock footage that this isn't for the weak of heart or people who are easily offended.

Some might say this is an art flick like Begotten (1990) because what you see is sometimes hard to understand. Yhe mutilation man himself is walking around naked full frontal so some might have trouble with the nudity. And the score doesn't make it easier to watch this sick flick.

Andrew Copp went further into other disturbing flicks. This is the most weird one. It's not for everybody but gorehounds should love this. But it's hard to sit through due the low quality and not actually having a story...child abuse looks the main theme to be.

Gore 3/5 Nudity 1,5/5 Effects 1,5/5 Story 1/5 Comedy 0/5
