Storyline

In this genre-defying grind-house throwback, a group of drug-addled, sexually deviant medical students are systematically terrorized by Wilma and John Hopper. The Hoppers, serial murderers and rapists, mysteriously return from the 1970s, and bring horrifying psychedelia with them. With comedy, subversion, satire and true gore, the students must face escalating attacks, shocking circumstances and visceral disgust. Written by Anonymous

tripping out
25 July 2010 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Much attention was given on specialized sites concerning this movie. So whenever there is a fuss about something your expectations are high. That must be the reason why this flick failed for so many. Would I say, it's horror, no, is it a throw back to the grindhouse, no again. I can't say were I should put it but I can tell that it really is some weird movie. A story about two killers living back into the seventies that raped people until they were dead. Somehow, they are back nowadays, but are they really? I can agree that some people don't get the movie. It's all about tripping, remember Jacob's Ladder. Some people had difficulties with that one too. After a while you don't know if you are in the real world or in the hallucinating mind. At the end it will all become clear if it is fake or real...Some scene's will really be offending for some but if you are into weird stuff or gory things than you won't have any problem with it. Gory it will get sometimes and some frontal nudity both male and female will appear too. The director really did put some effort into publishing it and he did well too. Happy to have seen it, again, not for the squeamish, but for the perverted out there.
