"You don't call a man a tree.", 18 February 2012
Author: atarichild1211 from United States

I have been a fan of Troma since I was far too young to be watching their movies. I had the pleasure of seeing the newest movie from them called Father's Day directed by five lunatics known as Astron-6. I'll start this review by saying this movie is far too good to be a Troma movie. Yeah I said it. I heard this movie cost 10,000 dollars to make and I don't believe it. It transcends several genres by being really good and laugh out loud hilarious. It marries the sensibilities of Grindhouse cinema with moments of absurd comedy that work every single time.

I'll stop the butt kissing for one second to give a bit of synopsis but I will try to do so without spoiling too much of the plot. The story is about a one eyed man named Ahab ( Adam Brooks) on an epic quest for revenge against a cannibal serial murderer/rapist of fathers named Chris Fuchman (Mackenzie Murdock) he's joined in this quest by Father John Sullivan (Matthew Kennedy) and underage male prostitute Twink (Conor Sweeny) along with Ahab's Stripper sister Chelsea (Amy Groening). For starters everyone's acting works really well and they all click off each other in a way that's great on screen. The dialogue is also smart and funny. The movie starts off somewhat serious and had quite a few graphic scenes of Fuchman raping dads which will send some prudes running for the hills. The violence and gore will also. I went into this expecting these things so I enjoyed it a lot.

There were homages to movies and things I understand (The lurid lighting at times evoked feelings of Dario Argento and comic books) I've heard some people say Escape from new York was one but all they ever say is the eyepatch was the homage. I've seen plenty of eyepatches in movies. True grit. Captain Ron. So I don't know.

The comparisons to the bunch of grindhouse movies that have been coming out lately is inevitable. Hobo with a shotgun, Machete, and Grindhouse are of the same ilk but I would hardly say they are in the same league. Father's day is really funny because it knows it's absurd and revels in it. There is a part where the intense Detective Stegel (Brent Neale) shows up and the heroes have to slip past him unnoticed, so they dress up in dresses and walk openly past him despite the fact Ahab has a beard and a picture of an eye taped to his eyepatch. (I guffawed at that might I add) From the very beginning it evokes a sense of 80's-90's nostalgia, like the movie is being shown late at night on some local TV channel. It even has a commercial break midway for the next movie which is an awesome low budget Star wars-esque movie that I won't ruin.

I cannot recommend this movie enough because it transcends the Troma name. Yeah it's filled with male rape, ultra violence, lots of female nudity, the occasional penis, lots of swearing. All the things I enjoy in movies because it's mixed with absurd comedy.

As I said before I am astonished this movie cost $10,000 because it looks really good. I've also heard people say the music is intentionally bad. I disagree. "We are the universe" will be my ringtone sooner than later. I expect to see more from Aston-6 after this because this is a grand achievement and should get a lot of people's attention. See it in the theater with an audience of like-minded individuals and you won't be disappointed! This is now my favorite Troma movie and honestly one of my favorite movies to come out in a while.
