Storyline

Random car trouble and aid from a good Samaritan aren't what they seem, much to ex-drug addict Lance's growing horror. Retribution for a past injury is the name of this peculiar stranger's game as he violently, callously and torturously dismantles Lance's life bit by bit. Desperate yet unsuccessful, Lance tries to recall what harm he brought to this particular man (which will end this game), confessing to other misdeeds that prompt his tormentor to seek out and retrieve the injured parties to share in his vengeance. With body parts running out, it's a wonder if Lance will ever recall the correct transgression that started it all before only his life remains. Written by statmanjeff

A blackly hilarious horror comedy riff on the torture themed subgenre
8 May 2011 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Lance Reed (Will Keenan) is happily married and life is good. While traveling, his car breaks down and Lance accepts a ride from a helpful stranger. (Timothy Muskatel) The stranger then proceeds to jokingly ask him who would he save in a hypothetical situation, his wife or brother.

Then, not so jokingly, he shoots Lance with a tranquilizer gun. He's rather annoyed at Lance, you see. Reason being, Lance did something on him years ago, that caused him to suffer. Now he's gonna make Lance suffer. Problem is, Lance can't remember who this guy is, and feels he doesn't know him from Adam. This enrages the stranger even more. Now he's gonna make Lance suffer even more. Bit by bit, and piece by piece, he will totally destroy every aspect of Lance's life, and the lives of those he cares about...

This sounds pretty grim from the premise, but Chop is actually one of the funniest horror comedies I've seen in ages. Trent Haaga, who cut his teeth with Troma, (and who also wrote the rather impressive Deadgirl) has created a dark but hilarious horror flick that pokes fun at torture themed horrors very effectively.

With great performances from both Keenan and Muskatel, as well as some belly laugh scenes and dialogue, not to mention some decent gore FX, it's a treat for any horror fan, particularly fans of torture themed horrors. This film really shouldn't work with such a premise, but it honestly does, and it went down a real treat with the crowd at the Dead By Dawn 2011 festival, where I caught it.

9/10 it's an excellent and very funny little horror and highly recommended. And all you exploitation fans out there... see if you can spot a cameo from Camille "I Spit On Your Grave" Keaton.
