Storyline

Set in present day Northeastern Mississippi and Memphis, Blackie (Jack Oblivian) returns to Earth 42 years after his first visit to complete a mission: Given a second chance by The Elder of the Lo-Fi Frequency (Sexploitation pioneer of the '50's and '60's DAVID FRIEDMAN), he is to finish his original mission of killing 12 victims. He hooks up with his old friend Mike (Mike Maker) then eventually meets Kerine (Kerine Elkins) and Goliatha (D'Lana Tunnell). Trouble begins.

Kerine, fresh out of prison, kills her parents and Blackie finds out THE DEATHS COUNT AS IF HE HAD KILLED THEM HIMSELF! This causes cosmic problems for Blackie because he now has 13 deaths to his credit instead of 12!

The Elder tells Blackie in order to return home he must TAKE BACK THE 13TH DEATH (Kerine's Mother, played by Ghetty Chasun) BY KILLING A VICTIM OF THE ELDERS CHOOSING!

So much potential...
17 October 2002 | by cornjob-2See all my reviews

Wow, this was disappointing. The movie starts off all right and the backstory is acceptably goofy. The movie is fun until Kerine-a shows up. Then it just gets annoying. The problem is that Kerine-a is a completely unlikable character and soon becomes the main one. If the movie had been devoid of her, it would have been better.

The other characters are interesting, but are eclipsed in dialogue and screen time by Kerine-a. Fortunately, this movie has the ultimate saving grace and the greatest trump card for making something automatically cool--GUITAR WOLF!!! Yes, the Japanese punk rockers made famous by their sound and Wild Zero (the greatest movie ever) appear twice and somehow manage to completely steal the movie with something like seven minutes of screen time total.

Sore Losers has some amusing bits and some great ideas. Then Kerine-a shows up and it goes down the drain. Really disappointing, too. It had so much promise...
