Yes There's Gore But That's About It
29 May 2017 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Violent $hit (1989)

* (out of 4)

Insane, low-budget horror film from Germany has a young boy murdering his mother. Twenty years later Karl (Andreas Schnaas) escapes from a mental hospital and goes on another bloody murder spree.

VIOLENT $HIT comes from director Schnaas who has made a career out of these low-budget horror movies that's main purpose is to make the viewer sick. You can read more about Germany's stance on horror movies from this era but what basically happened is several filmmakers started making this ultra gory movies. The end result is pretty much what you'd expect and your level of entertainment will certainly depend on what you want from your horror movies.

Personally speaking, I can respect the filmmakers of films like this a lot more than I actually enjoy the films. I say that because I can respect people going out with very little money and doing something they love. I admit that the insane special effects aren't anything ground-breaking but at the same time you have to give them credit for going over-the-top and just delivering a non-stop amount of gore.

The problem with VIOLENT $HIT and others like it is the fact that there's just not much here to hold your interest. There's really nothing "good" here in regards to technical terms and I'd argue that none of the characters are all that interesting. There's the gore, yes, but to me that's just not enough to keep this entertaining even through the short running time.
