Talk about trailer-trash!
6 December 2005 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

Completely insane Science-Fiction/horror short revolving on a cursed sexual attribute that turns three inhabitants of a caravan park into bloodthirsty maniacs. "Vibroboy" is not your usual superhero, but a depraved Aztec God who enjoys physically pleasuring people to death. This short movie by Jan Kounen ("Dobermann") is comical despite its dark and grim photography. The humor is also very politically incorrect, if you ask me, with actors turning into life-size vibrators and such. The filming location is excellently trashy and the 3 actors (1 female and 2 males) are clearly very dedicated to help Jan Kounen in making this movie a curious cult-short. Move over, overrated Japanese Iron Man, there's a new absurd superhero in town!
