In the ironically named city of Paradise, a recently laid-off loser teams up with his cult-leading uncle to steal a peculiar bounty of riches from their local amusement park; somehow, the recently arrived Taliban have a similar focus, but a far more sinister intent.
During the Vietnam War [1959-1975] a special US combat unit is sent out to hunt and kill the Viet Cong soldiers in a man-to-man combat in the endless tunnels underneath the jungle of Vietnam. Suicide squads of a special kind.
Coming back from her bachelor party in Las Vegas, Christine and her friends are driving through the hot desert of Nevada. But they are not alone - serial killer Max Seed is back and he brought the whole family.
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

Did we just watch the same film? Perhaps there were two "Seeds" made in 2008...seriously...were there? Bottom 100! I have watched many films and if you check my voting history, you will see I have voted and commented on many, from Kubrick to Haneke. Now I am not for one second saying this film is "Funny Games" or "A Clockwork Orange" - but it sure as hell ain't one of the bottom 100 films ever made! Taken for what it is (a Horror flick) I actually found it quite good. Some quite gripping scenes and an eerie soundtrack (I actually kept thinking someone was knocking on my door). Sure, the animal cruelty (opening minute) I could have done without, but then Henake used a similar opening in "Benny's Video".
I rate this film 6/10. It's no Rosemary's Baby, but it blows Rob Zombie's Halloween (and many other so called "Horror" films out of the water). The stop motion decay scenes were quite original too.
Just to give you an idea of my tastes (in horror), I liked the Devil's Rejects; Dawn of the Dead (original); Funny Games (original and remake); Texas Chainsaw (original) and of course, Rosemary's Baby.
Seed is not a patch on those (obiously), but it really isn't a bad film in my humble opinion.
Maybe I did watch a different film.
