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

Disturbing Yet Stupid -- Is This Film Great or Terrible?
5 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Returning to the medical school where they were test subjects decades ago, a pair of outrageously twisted serial killers use shockingly brutal sex acts to start killing off a group of drugged-out med students.

What do you say about a film that opens with a man getting brutally raped by a man with the world's largest penis? Once you see that, you are more or less prepared for anything the film can throw at you. Of course, it also means you are now expecting the worst and any less might be disappointing.

We have two horror guest stars: Lew Temple as the coroner and Trent Haaga as a police officer. You may or may not notice them (heck, you may or may not know who they are).

The film focuses largely on drugs and the police interrogating the raped man's friends about his drug use and whether or not any of them have ever slept with him. This really made no sense to me, as they clearly had enough physical evidence to narrow down the suspects. But, hey, whatever works.
