Storyline

Two cannibals/health food diner owners are on a wacky quest to restore life to the five million year old goddess Shitaar. Aided by their uncle's brain and penis, the two set about getting the required parts - virgins, assorted body parts from whores, and the ingredients for a "blood buffet". Their adversaries are the police: the chief with a Russian accent, the "player" detective, and the new Yorker with an Australian accent. Written by Erik Swanson <egswanso@midway.uchicago.edu>

[first lines]
Narrator: Warning! The truly unusual motion picture you are about to see contains many scenes of graphic violence. It is not intended for the faint of heart nor the young and impressionable. While it is a sad fact that mass homicide and practitioners of blood cults infest our society, the producers of this film wish to express that they do not condone, nor do they want to inspire, any of the human butchery or violence portrayed in this film. If you feel you will be offended by such material,...

Gorey, Absurdist Masterpiece
1 April 2004 | by writerbwoySee all my reviews

This silly slasher flick cannot be judged by normal standards. Yes the plot is lame, the acting wooden, the writing amateurish, the gore fake as hell. In short, this is the quintessential B-movie.

But what other movie, B or otherwise, has so blithely ignored convention and verisimilitude and plumbed the depths of absurdity to the extent that this one has? Hollywood wishes it could make something this farcical and ingratiatingly goofy. Tarantino and The Farrelly Bros. are the only mainstream directors who've come within shouting distance. John Woo, too, is right behind them with the wonderfully preposterous Face Off and MI:2.

For instance, the scene where the rival restauranteur get his hands cut off by the brothers. This guy gets his hands chopped off, runs to his car, opens the door (not sure how), and starts it up. Quick cut to a shot of him driving away, stumps on the steering wheel and spurting blood onto the inside of the windshield. His vision obscured by the mini-geysers spurting from his arms, the driver attempts to clear the inside of windshield by...turning on the wipers!

I still laugh so hard at that scene. That and the scene of Georgie joyously running over that biker with his van while listening to that Mambo song are among the funniest things I've ever seen on film.

There are so many absurd little gems in this, like most of Uncle Anwar's brain's lines: "We need the blood of immoral girls!" "Put that slut on the shopping list!" "And keep your brother out of the gay bars." "Blood boofay." Honorable mention: the headcrushing scene outside the club. My favorite is the crowd reaction: they laugh! Also the radio announcer saying Anwar has a knife in one hand, his genitalia in the other.

Anyway, this is definitely one for B-movie fans and people who enjoy their farce by the bloody shoveful.

This movie reminds me of a quotation from the inestimable Brian Johnson of AC/DC regarding the sexual innuendo undergirding most that group's songs:

"We are masters of the single entendre."
