Needs penetration., 14 December 2009
Author: ElijahCSkuggs from Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane

A clothes-hanger abortion survivor? Whoa! Who's turned into a blood-thirsty freak? Whoa mama! Graphic nudity? Mama mia! It's directed by Ryan Nicholson? Oh...hmmm...I guess I'll check it out.

I've gotta admit, even though this flick seems to have all the ingredients to sound like a pretty sweet and f'ed up flick, it's almost a chore to watch. Scratch that. It is a chore to watch. My biggest issue was how the story played out. The pacing was horrendous. Mix that with a cast of entirely unlikeable characters and bingo, a chore. And why are the characters unlikeable? Well, you can blame that on the amateur acting, and subpar writing. Just like Ryan's past movies he seems to not have a problem with giving his actors full reign of their characters. And when you have actors who aren't so hot at acting, it more than likely ends up being like this.

A thought that popped in my head a few times while watching this was how close it came to becoming a porno. And actually how it even felt like a porn flick at times. Ryan, you add some penetration to these films, and you'll instantly become the best horror porn director ever. Or at least the best working at the moment. Maybe think about it, eh?

There aren't many film-makers out there that are as carefree and in love with the horror genre as Mr. Nicholson, and that is the sole reason I keep seeing his movies. I hope instead of sticking to human horror he tackles something a bit more 'traditional', but leaving his trademark sickness to it. A creature feature or a big foot movie, but with the works.

Hanger was a gross, sleazy, dirty flick that should have been a crazy fun time, but ended up being boring, unlikeable, and felt like it tried much too hard to be funny and shocking. The handful of disgusting scenes and graphic nudity can only go so far.

p.s. Edward Lee's Bighead just called you a copycat.
