Cruel World has taken years to release, with about a dozen supposed release dates and practically zero updates on when the movie was going to release. I was excited for the film, but because of the lack of updates - I just expected this movie to be released "one day". It had good reviews from screenings, and was even released in Australia...so I don't know why they took so long to release this amusing slasher flick! I loved this!
The movie opens with a great appearance from Jaime Pressly, who has an encounter with Edward Furlong in her home, after something she did to him on a Reality-TV show they were both on. After some brutal results, Edward takes over her mansion and holds a Reality-TV show of his own with his psychotic brother, as the unlucky contestants realize (as Furlong quotes) "If you get voted of this show, you get voted off for good!". I loved this flick, it was really cool and really entertaining to watch.
Cruel World is a slasher film you don't take seriously at all, because it is a movie that is pure, slasher fun with a lot of humor involved. I mean, when was the last time you saw an Asian female being chased by a maniac...only to pee on him and do martial arts kicks? This movie has some funny humor like this spread throughout the film. I wouldn't say it's a Horror-Comedy actually, or a spoof. I'd just say it's a fun movie you don't take seriously!
The acting was really good, and Jaime Pressly stood out in her role in the movie. Edward Furlong looked like he was having fun as a psycho, and had some funny one-liners as he provides commentary for us over the contestants. All of the other cast were great too, and I liked their characters...even if some of them were stereotypes. The movie has a high body count too, and entertaining death scenes. They handled the Reality-TV show aspect quite well actually, and even though it was rather straight-forward, it was still good.
Overall, Cruel World was definitely worth the wait. I have no idea what took so long for this movie to get released, as it really is a fun slasher film to watch. It has some really good acting, cool death scenes, humor and more. Recommended!
