an ultra-cheesy schlockfest made by children with no directorial vision
i can't even begin to point out all of the flaws with this SOV tripe. but if i have to start somewhere: primarily, it's not entertaining, which renders void the need to waste 90 minutes suffering through it.
the story is...well, there is no story. the plot is: some cannibals go around the city torturing and eating people, while some toehead cop - who must have been one of the crews' dad - tries to find them. nice.
the acting is stiffer than straight vodka, the fx are - understandably, due to the video's pedigree - amateur, the editing was pathetic. to cover up for terrible shooting, there are entire sequences that are dissolved. either that or it was a pathetic attempt at a montage, which begs the question: why the hell is there a montage there? style? absolutely not. how can i be so certain? because the rest of the video is so pathetic, how could a conscious effort at directorial flourish suddenly manifest itself inexplicably?
the opening sequence lasts about 5 minutes too long, and i think it's about 5 minutes and 30 seconds. it involves 2 girls sitting in a extremely poorly lit bar, while the camera remains at a nice wide shot, so as to further obscure anything that might have been seen if the camera and lights were closer to the subject. and it just drags on like that. why? obviously to pad out the running time and cover the fact that you're actually watching an extremely amateur sov waste of time and videotape. i wouldn't be surprised if it had been shot on vhs-c.
i know i'm avoiding the ultimate point of this video, which is to shock and revolt, but my point is: it is totally without any merit. the guinea pig series is at least shot well, and fairly convincingly, by obvious semi-pro shooters and directors who has a keen eye for real brutality.
another glimpse into the genius of this video are the intertitles which pop up annoyingly and pretentiously every few minutes, with witty quotes from such staples of the MENSA community as marilyn manson, and razor (not the wrestler, the crap-rock band).
as a canadian, it makes me terribly angry to see that useless, talentless, mindless garbage like this is coming out of canada, as it will no doubt reflect on our country negitively to any foreigner that views it.
on behalf of my country, i sincerely apologize, and hope this word of caution will stave you from certain ennui.
