Average Comic Slasher, 22 February 2009
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A new Hungarian cook (Mark Hengst) arrives in a sorority house while a group of girls travels during the weekend to Cabo. The cook does not speak any word in English and is befriended by the medical student Amy (Makinna Ridgway). While the girls stay in the house, he kills one of them, Michelle (Stefanie Solano), using her meat to prepare the most delicious dishes for the girls while he promises in Hungarian to kill everyone in the house.

The low budget "The Cook" is an average comic slasher that has some goods and awful points. First there is no plot, only a new cook that arrives and kills the girls, without any development of his character or motives. The sorority house looks like a warehouse, and the behavior of the hot girls is more for sluts than for college student, with a group of potheads, lesbians and whores. The dialogs are among the most mediocre I have ever seen. When a person befriends another, the usual first question is how your name is. The nerd Amy befriends the cook and never asks his name. Mark Hengst is great, alternating sweet, humorous and scary faces depending on the situation. The joke with "Friday the13th: The Final Chapter" is probably the best moment of this movie. As a tradition in B-movies, most of the girls are extremely sexy and their partial nudity is very attractive and sometimes erotic. The gore special effects are reasonable for a low-budget movie. The predictable conclusion is funny and in the end this movie is watchable and not so bad. My vote is five.
