In the shadows awaits a pack of the most evil, the most vile, rejects of humanity that's addicted to violence and thirsty for blood! This is Psycho Holocaust... Written by
Maybe it's because I've been stuck on the time period, but I could have sworn the was a mid-70's movie. Instead, it's from 2009. I couldn't tell you whether it was an artistic choice or that the budget was non- existent. Either way, the vibe is there down to the washed out colors. As with a lot of 70's gore films, the acting is mostly atrocious. Buddy shines through, however, as the lead psycho. The special effects are, at times, laughable, such as the whip marks. the scalping was well done though. There's a scene on a river that you can't hear one of the actresses when she's speaking.
All of this should add up to a lousy rating and yet.... They've got the vibe right. A few scenes and images gave me that "holy s**t" feeling in the pit of my stomach. With a better budget and better actors, this would have been stellar.
