It's all about the worms!
1 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've seen some weird movies in my time, most of them forgettable (proven by the fact that right now I can't name one example), but this film has to be one of the weirdest films ever, and I wont be forgetting it any time soon. The main reason it's going to be so unforgettable isn't the weirdness, but because I came away from watching it feeling pretty damn disturbed by some of the characters I was introduced to (and in some cases, not introduced to at all) who live Way Down In China Town, the team who put this film together certainly succeeded in their mission if it was to leave the viewer disturbed.

So, in summary, this film, visually and audibly weird, disturbing, confusing and bloody brilliant! As for the worms? Don't ask…spoilers :P
