not a typical Uwe Boll feature
21 September 2011 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

Most of us will known Uwe Boll, the director, from Bloodrayne and Alone In The Dark or the more gory Seed. sadly for the main he's know for really bad films. But I liked some of his flicks. By attending conventions I ran across Uwe at a convention where he signed and gave me this flick. It's one of his earlier attempts and a whole different kind than his major releases. The way it was filmed did remind me of Schramm. Especially the scene's at the killer's home. The edition I have is full uncut. And it's not this short feature which clocks in at an hour, that made it to be cut. It's the television that makes it really not for the squeamish. First of all there is footage visible of animal cruelty an some footage of a slaughterhouse. Further on the killer looks at someone being electrocuted but that looked like the scene from Faces Of Death. When he's watching the TV it all takes a bit too long. Just see the scene were he's looking at the German version of The Price Is Right. Others will be offended by the porn flick he's watching while he's masturbating and a victim is laying on the ground. The camera zooms in on the television, what you see is not for pussies. Sucking, f***ing, two dicks in one pussy, facial cum shots, in g-fact a summary of a porn flick. But if you left the television out of this feature then there isn't that much too see. When he becomes a mass murderer it's shown in slo-mo and again, it's really a slow scene. But it does fit in the era being made, the first German splatters and of course Schramm from 1994. Too slow for nowadays but still confronting what he's watching on the TV.
