SURGIKILL should have been better. Andy Milligan does not deserve all the blame
31 August 2004 | by sbhirsh0-1See all my reviews

ANDY MILLIGAN was the wrong director for SURGIKILL. He didn't understand comedy as being anything other than people falling all over each other. The amateurish quality of the overall production was the fault of certain behind the scenes persons who butted in when they weren't needed. Andy was weakened by his disease, but hardly in the "FINAL THROES OF AIDS". I understand that his overall approach to SURGIKILL as farce was due to his sickness and the desire to do something non-horror. He lived 2 years after SURGIKILL and continued to produce plays at his own theatre until he was too sick to continue. The project had great potential, but too many people seemed to give up on it, and just slough off their work. The pervasive stupidity of the final release has no counterpart in the original script. I know, because I wrote SURGIKILL. It was not an original Andy Milligan project. He was hired to direct it. That was the first mistake. Anyone who is interested in Andy's career should consult the series on his life and work as published in Video Watchdog. The book published on Andy, THE GHASTLY ONE, is, to put it most kindly, defective.
