A conspiracy-theorizing filmmaker meets with a prospective producer in order to pitch a movie about the death of real-life German politician Uwe Barschel, in which the official ruling of suicide raised more questions than answers.
Max Seed, a mass murderer, is scheduled for execution at the hands of Warden Wright. Before the executioner throws the switch, Wright steps in front of Seed, "Do you have any last words?" Seed, " I'll see you again." After three attempts to electrocute, complete with boiling blood that steeps from his eyes, he's still alive. The executioner, Wright & the doctor collectively agree, that the breathing Seed be pronounced dead. He is bound and buried alive. After biting & clawing his way to the surface, Seed, the blood soaked, enraged madman, is now bent on vengeance. The reign of violence that follows will redefine the boundaries of extreme gore, physical & mental torture explored through cinema. Written by

Another week passes and I find myself viewing ANOTHER Uwe Boll movie (*shudder*) and once again I seem to disagree with the majority of viewers on this particular director. Compared to some of his other movies, quite a few people should rank this among his better efforts.
It tells the story of Max Seed, a serial killer finally caught and due to be executed after a 6 year killing spree. Due to a faulty electric chair, Max is not killed so the warden and those present decide that rather than take any chances they are going to bury him alive. Needless to say, he's not too happy about this and soon comes back to exact his revenge.
Starting off with some disturbing footage of animal cruelty, this movie is not for the faint-hearted. It is Boll's most disturbing work so far and while the rest of the movie may not keep quite as bleak a tone it's certainly not all rainbows and sunshine.
The acting is pretty bad although not godawful and the cast is full of faces you will only mainly recognise from Boll's other movies (and Michael Paré). The standout here, for me anyway, was seeing Michael Eklund again; an actor who can grab your interest simply by looking far too much like Ethan Hawke for his own good.
With logic cast to the side early on and blatant disregard for any choices made that would actually make sense, this is a film that sets out to shock you, make you squirm and provide some cheap scares. In that regard, it works. It may not be the best slasher/serial killer movie ever made but it's quite a bit better than many others released month in and month out. And I must just say that I was actually impressed by the ending so give it a try and see what you think of it for yourself.
See this if you like: Halloween (remake), Madman, Shocker.
