Blood, sweat and tears...well, blood at least
28 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sweatshop seems to be a "gore-hounds" only movie, I can't see it appealing to anyone else. The body count is extremely high, especially towards the end of the movie when the killer ( or killers ) crashes and slashes and bashes the party in the abandoned warehouse. Hey, by the way, how much work are you getting out of these guys? Some sweatshop! It's kind of hard to keep up with production in the job industry when you're, you know, exterminating these young boneheads off with an unexplainable huge hammer. Oh, yeah, this is one brutally violent flick. In this one, torture first, THEN you get that hammer. If you've ever seen The Midnight Meat Train, and you're familiar with the hammer that guy used, well, the hammer in THIS movie will make that poor hammer look like a toothpick. I mean, it has to weigh at least 200 pounds, and our mass murderer picks it up with no sweat...well, if he's sweating, we don't see it. He has a welders mask on. Scary, huh? You think that's scary, wait until you see the final scene of the movie. The ending credits roll, and you're left wondering how they can end a film like that...completely unresolved. In fact, I would have given this movie 5 stars, but the dumb ending demoted 2 stars automatically. I don't mind you not having much of a plot when it comes to a slasher flick, but the least you can do is have a decent ending. In fact, what slasher movie has much of a plot? You're not watching it for the story, let's be realistic, we want to see some horrific stuff, right? Because this is that type of movie, and I felt as if it delivered the goods, I would have told you that this was an average, ultra-violent horror flick. When I say ultra-violent, don't take the warning lightly: jawbone is removed with bare hands, barbed wire is used to tie its victims painfully to a board, male parts are ripped out, not to mention the "That-was-so-WRONG " deaths with the whip of the hammer. Look, I don't know what these nerds did to upset the mind ( or minds) of this killer ( or killers ), but all I have to say is: Next time you throw a party, do it at somebody house. You never know, because you don't want to be throwing a party in Sweatshop!
