True grindhouse among grindhouse wannabes!
26 August 2011 | by (Kenilworth, NJ) – See all my reviews

This film is a true throwback to the great old days of grindhouse cinema, a-la 42nd Street. Many people are trying to do grindhouse these days out of some misguided sense of nostalgia, and they are failing miserably. The crew at Noose Hill Entertainment got it right.

This film is extremely gritty and yes, it is very violent, but the violence actually makes sense in the context of the film. In other words, it's not there just for the sake of violence. The movie is about the deterioration of the mind of the main character, and the violent acts he commits make total sense in light of this deterioration.

The other unsavory characters that surround him only add to the overall mood of depravity. Manoush is fantastic as Olga, who does nothing to try and slow down the descent of the main character into madness, but in fact encourages it! The films does have it's flaws to be sure, and the acting performances of some of the secondary characters leave a little to be desired, but overall this in an excellent grindhouse film, that transports you back to New York City in the 70s, and does it with style.
