Abominable, indeed...
11 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

I feel they should have honored this movie which a much more appealing title…Something like "The touching tale of a boy and his tumor", for example…or maybe even "The barf that ate my friends and family"! Either way you look at it, this has got to be one of the sickest and most demented movies someone ever thought up! Following the good old 80's splatter rules, "The Abomination" totally ignores atmosphere and substance, going straight for an immeasurable amount of gore. The opening sequence alone already contains more blood and guts than a hundred other horror films and easily offended people will immediately stop watching. This vicious intro is a compilation of the film' grossest moments and for some incomprehensible reason it completely spoils the rest of the movie before it even properly begun. "The Abomination" introduces us to a family of white trash in the wastelands of America. An adolescent boy with a dead end job and a mother whose obsessed by a TV-guru. One day, mommy pukes out a tumor and it immediately takes possession of the boy. The constantly growing tumor forces the boy to kill people and serve their bodies as lunch! Call me insane but I somewhat like basic idea… It's more or less a very perverted update of the "Little Shop of Horrors" premise, directed by Roger Corman in 1960. The budget is extremely low and the cast is a bunch of amateur hillbillies with nothing better to do. In case your horror-standards are low, this is perfect gory entertainment. We're talking axes, chainsaws, slit throats, severed limbs, pitchfork-killings and entire buckets of human guts (literally). In the film's most redundant sequence, we witness how the infamous TV-guru takes a dump in his office toilet…. Talking about tastelessness! One piece of advice: this movie goes well with beer. Loads and loads of beer….and vomit bags.
