Storyline

In 1993, in Hollywood, California, the addicted in heroin mother of two children is a decadent ventriloquist that can not find work anymore. When she overdoses and dies, the siblings Norbert and Angelina are sent to a foster house with their dummy. Later they are sent to their uncle's house; the man sexually abuses Angelina and the dummy kills him. Years later, Norbert (who can't speak) and his seventeen year-old alcoholic sister Angelina are living on the streets; when the dummy slaughters a boy, Norbert is accused and arrested by the police and sent to an asylum with his dummy. Later Angelina decides to release her brother and finds a woman in order to give an offspring to her family. She breaks into the institution, kills the male nurse and Norbert escapes. When they meet Robin on the road, Angelina decides that the teenager will be the mother of her nephew and they abduct the girl. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Cheesy, but free your mind and it's fun
15 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are looking to have fun with a corny, grisly and badly executed B-Movie, Triloquist is perfect for you. Sure, it's not the best of the Dimension Extremes, but it's definitely not the worst, because as a film itself, this was pretty good on a cheesiness level. The movie, when it actually gets into the main story, starts off with a really cool (yet unfindable) song in which the songstress repeats "f*ck you" in the chorus. I was immediately interested because the main character looked really awesome and kick-ass, and since the movie right away is so cheesy, I knew what I was in for, and I couldn't help but be intrigued by how the rest of the film was going to turn out.

Like I said, it's certainly not the masterpiece of the decade, but if you can enjoy films like this, it's gritty, obnoxious, all out enjoyment from start to finish. Overall, the movie is very entertaining. You can't take it seriously at all or you'll end up hating it. The characters are very likable, and even though there is so much crappy material in this movie, such as, right before they kill someone they play one of the most retarded songs ever, which I can only assume is called, "Hello Sunshine," and the brother Norbert for some reason has to dance like a dumbass every second, which is supposedly meant to be scary or some sh*t, it works for them because you shouldn't have been expecting it to be that wonderful in the first place and you can laugh at what's meant to be exploitation.

Aside from some material that is neither funny or enjoyable, and aside from the movie being completely bland at times to the point I want to throw up, this is worth the watch for a laugh or just to be entertained, to some extent. I can see why someone, hell, anyone, would hate it, but I watched it with an open mind and appreciated it for what it was.
