Ripper To Shreds
24 May 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Firstly let's get the misleading overall rating out of the way, it's yet another one that's been artificially boosted by interested parties (cast, crew, family etc.) and would ordinarily have a 2.8 or similar had anyone actually voted for it.

It's nasty in every sense, both gruesome (obviously to give it any point of existence at all), and badly made in every way.

Troma have picked up on it which should immediately tell you all you need to know, but let's go anyway... The actors are all ill at ease here and struggling to stay in character, they are left to ad-lib most of the scenes and look lost and do not give a single memorable conversation.

The music balance is completely out of whack and so the inevitable metal and some 8 bit type synth dominates throughout. Each interior scene here look like they were all made in the same drafty echoey room and are totally stripped of any atmosphere, some decent editing and special effects would have gone a long way, but I realise this would be asking way too much.

Story wise, well there is none to speak of, our 'hero' Grahm is a retarded, coke-head dealer who decides to stalk a random girl Kirsty, who has arrived at her her drunken, horror flick obsessed aunties', firstly looking like Dorothy from Wizard of Oz,and then inexplicably transforming into a tone-deaf hipster.

Grahm's buddy is a mutant Barry Gibb who eventually joins him in his drug addled murdering spree. They clearly didn't know how to end the film, so they just didn't bother and left it 'open'.

So is there anything to redeem this amateurish, brainless, pointless offering ? well, no. I suppose if you like gore then it's heavy on that, and tits, yes they've naturally given you that as well, but to be honest those ladies are not even 'traditionally' attractive.

Poor, very very poor.
