Did You Know?

Goofs

Aster flower does not have 21 petals; as any biologist knows, every single aster flower has exactly five petals. What is commonly perceived as an aster flower, is in fact a large inflorescentia composed of dozens of small flowers, tubular (with all five petals fused together to form a pipe) at the centre of the inflorescentia, ligular (where the fused petals form a small tongue, resembling a single flower petal) at the perimeter. The plant family to which an aster belongs, known nowadays as "Asteraceae" (aster-likes), was once labeled "Compositae" (composed) to underline this. See more »

The Golden Section
6 April 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In a small town, a serial killer mutilates the bodies of his victims and leaves a flower on the corpses. The efficient Sheriff's Deputy Zoe Adams (Sarah Thompson) and her political chief and lover Sheriff Jimmy Fleck (Jeffrey Combs) investigate the murders but the proximity to the elections makes Jimmy not informing the menace to the local population. Zoe finds many clues and teams up with the autistic trainer of hounds Leroy Calhoun (Michael Berryman), disclosing the identity of the killer.

"Brutal" is a reasonable slasher thriller with a fake marketing on the cover of the DVD, where it is written the atrocity "Hostel Meets The Silence of the Lambs". The story does not work well because of the awful character Jimmy Fleck and his romance with Zoe Adams, and Jeffrey Combs has the worst performance I have ever seen, maybe a side effect of his character. There are moments of black comedy, lots of gore, the killer is hilarious but the the movie is only average. My vote is five.
