Bowled over!
2 April 2008 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Well, I just finished watching Gutterballs.

To set up this mini-review I'll start by saying that Ryans previous movie, Live Feed was enjoyable. However it did have quite a few problems that really hurt the overall movie...the acting was sub-par on most counts, the script wasn't the greatest and some of the direction needed improvement. Don't get me wrong, LF is a fun little movie for genre fans So, did Ryan correct all these problems? Is Gutterballs better than LF? The answer is mostly and definitely.

Gutterballs is a throw back to the older exploitation flicks with a good helping of Troma-esquire fun.

Firstly the overall acting is much better. Alastair Gamble plays the ultimate bully boy...and does a great job in particular. The rest of the cast do either passable or above average as far as acting.

The script is a huge improvement...sure its far from perfect, but there are some great one-liners...again its quite Troma in that respect (oh and I mean the good Troma flicks). Nathan Dashwood as The Janitor gets some funny lines, and delivers them very well.

The direction again is much better. The overall look of the film is quite good, despite the low budget.

A special mention has to go to the soundtrack...the 80's music adds a lot to the flick IMO.

Alright...what about the plot? The gore etc? Well the plot is really a quite simple slasher one, though is perhaps not as obvious as you may think. It moves at a good pace, but really ups the killings towards the end.

OK, is it shocking? Well, as a seasoned horror fan, there certainly is some eye opening moments. We get an extended multiple rape scene, male and female nudity (which becomes very graphic at certain points), some very inventive and nasty deaths (with some great FX) and mutilations that may leave you squirming.

Gutterballs succeeds in its mission. It brings back the memories of old school exploitation but is a lot of fun at the same time.

Recommended to horror fans who like a bit of rough from time to time....and who like a laugh.

8/10

PS If their were an award for "Most creative costume for a Killer", I'd vote for Gutterballs....its freakin' awesome :-)
