Your hostess Countess Slutpira will take you on a journey of three of the most horrifying pieces of Schlock in independent film Including ButtonHead, Diagnoses Terror, and NeckBrace.

With hilarious results! Neckbrace: A "boi" of the punk rock persuasion is picked on and injured by a jock bully, as he recovers in his neckbrace he decides to buy a ...Written by
Segment 1 is called ButtonHead and it was an incredibly interesting concept. It was a riff on normal Frankenstein's Monster as a character has her clitoris inserted into her brain after she suffers an injury. Upon waking up, she is mildly brain damaged so the nurse who operated on her along with her roommate spend the rest of the segment trying to take care of her while protecting her from her abusive boyfriend. I was surprised at how good the acting was.
The one problem I had with this segment is that the camera was rarely ever held still even if they intended it to. As if someone was holding it in their hands, yet their hands had constant tremors which slightly shook the camera at most times. It didn't distract from the film at all, just a minor annoyance.
Segment 2 is called Diagnoses Terror and it was definitely my favorite of the anthology. The main character is slowly brain washed by a late-night TV Reverend who is preaching about how bad society is today and insisting people should be doing something about it. In the beginning there was a bit of problem with the colors and lighting but it is soon corrected. As usual with all of Henrique Couto's films, the dialogue is casual and never forced, even subtle lines such as the random "That's a huge raspberry Poptart!"
Segment 3 is called Neck Brace and in my opinion it's the weakest of the bunch. Some of the signs appear over lighted, likely due to filming outside when the sun was at its brightest peak. Some of the dialogue seems forced, especially with the character of Paco and his faux-Latino accent. The basic plot of the segment can be summed down to "don't do drugs, okay?" If you watch this, you have to understand that this is in no way a professional collection of films. This is some of the earliest work from 3 now professional filmmakers, so these are all labors of love. Don't go in expecting a Hollywood movie, instead expect something fun to watch.
