Gory, Disgusting, Offensive...But all in Fun
20 August 2010 | by seraphinoSee all my reviews

So I just got done seeing this movie and the first thing I have to say is "Wow!" That wow is good and bad; firstly, parents should really make note of what people are saying here, this is definitely NOT for KIDS!! I would even go so far as to say that it is not for adults with a weak stomach. The amount of gore, nudity, and disgusting content in this movie shouldn't have warranted an R-rating in my opinion; it was quite possibly the grossest movie I have ever seen; and I have seen some pretty disturbing movies.

On top of that, the acting was fairly sub-par, but, what can you expect from a movie filled with d-list cast members? While some scenes were very convincing, other scenes were so fake and unrealistic that this film could even be considered a dark comedy. This goes for some of the scary sequences too, because they looked so forced in order to make the viewer jump, it was very unconvincing.

The second "Wow!", I say because while this movie is disturbing it is all in fun. The movie is gross, yes, it is terribly acted, yes, and some people would say that this film is not a film that shouldn't have ever been made by mankind. But, for those attracted to gore and extremely gruesome creature horror/comedies. This is right up your alley.
