My Review Of "Theatre Of The Deranged" 2012
5 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Theatre Of The Deranged" is a horror anthology containing five short films from some of todays most twisted and most talked about indie story tellers. This collection comes complete with it's own demented host Andy the Arsonist. Welcome inside Andy's dark place as he unleashes five nightmares from his movie projector. Brian Dorton, Creep Creepersin, Liz Gilbert, James Cullen Bressack, and Shawn C. Phillips have brought five of the most truly deranged tales ranging from a trip to the countryside, a sinister carnival, and homicidal maniacs. The cast includes Cory Jacob, JD Fairman, Shawn C. Phillips, Sophie Dee, and Veronica Ricci.

The first short called "Lust For Blood" is directed by M. Kelly and Shawn C. Phillips. This is a no budget film that is both comical and bizarre. The soundtrack and style of this gory little play reminds me of the TROMA films in the early 80's. The jokes are funny, the acting is over the top exaggerated and the effects are cheesy. I found it entertaining and demented which is what is is intended to be.

"Bad Dennis" directed by Liz Gilbert is an intense mind-f**k psychotic-a flick that is filmed with gory vision and plenty of screams. This short is a sinister trip that finds four travelers taking the English countryside on a battle for survival or did they. This film has a twist at the end that leaves you guessing.

"Speak Easy" directed by James Cullen Bressack is a dark dub-step into betrayal of the man- code. A surreal journey into the psyche of what you would do if you found out your best friend was f**king your lover. This short was a brilliant blood sprayed tale.

"Doll Parts" directed by Brian Dorton is psycho melodrama that is twisted deliciously. The story is Americana warped into pure insanity and the gore is gloriously rich. My favorite of this anthology. When it ends I wanted more. A great body count and full frontal with a sadistic twist at the end. Great stuff.

"Cannibal Blood Girl" directed by Creep Creepersin is total punk rock indie gore. A hilariously cheesy karmic tale of terror. The insanity in this joint is beyond the norm. This was a killer blood soaked treat.

Andy the Arsonist delivers on his promise to bring truly twisted tales in "Theatre Of The Deranged". The stories are original homages to classic indie filmmaking. This is one of the coolest low budget/no budget anthologies and I only hope there will be more deranged tales to come.
