One of the worst ever, 25 December 2011
Author: Tomaz Kranjc from Slovenia

Just saw this and I was truly horrified. I mean I'm a big fan of bad movies and bad horror movies especially. Because usually they are brainless fun and totally watchable. But this is the opposite, it's entirely unwatchable and done with absolutely zero acting talent with some of the worst directing ever and script is just insulting to any viewer with IQ above 80.

This movie is much like Manos: The Hands of Fate, 100% clueless and inconsistent, but at least Manos was done by total amateurs and wasn't annoying. As a huge fan of bad flicks I'd say that The Cook is amongst the 10 worst movies ever made - and it's really really bad, there's no secret pleasure in watching it, so I'd only recommend it to people who can tolerate extremely stupid and one-dimensional characters, horrendous script writing and actors with zero acting skill (annoying as well).

This movie makes someone like Uwe Boll look good.
