Storyline

Apparently, to a rapist frat boy (Jeff) and his friends (Jen, Meese, etc.), there is a crazy 80s glam rock metal head who lives in a shack in the woods named Ricky. When the frat boys and girls wander away from their beach house and find him, Ricky ties them up and sings them cheesy 80s heavy metal songs until one confesses to a heinous crime - We soon realize that Ricky is one of the good guys, who has teamed up with Jen, the head frat girl that set up this whole beach house vacation so that she could capture Jeff's confession to her high school rape on video. Just as the bad frat boy confesses, he breaks free from his ropes and begins going on a killing spree. Will more innocent be hurt by Jeff? Or will Ricky, Jen and her friends bring justice to this horrible male chauvinist rapist? Written by John Birmingham

A independent movie? With cameos by Ron Jeremy and Lloyd Kaufman, that DOESN'T depend on gore, zombies, blood and boobs? Is that possible? John Birmingham just made one!
14 August 2006 | by superlinopuroSee all my reviews

Don't get me wrong, I love gory movies (in the summary it sounds like I'm against it, and that's not the case). But sometimes it's nice to see movies that actually have a good plot and don't depend on being as vulgar, disgusting and bloody as possible. Crazy Animal is one of those movies that is great without arms and legs flying everywhere on the screen. But there was some boob-shots, which is always appreciated. BUT still, the movie didn't focus on showing as many boobs as possible. The movie is very funny, but it has a serious and dramatic undertone which I really liked.

The characters and the actors in this movie is great! Much better acting that you can expect from a independent movie. The one that stands out the most (and probably will get all the laughs) is the sleaze-rocker named Ricky (played by Birmingham himself). He's the one that lights up the whole comedian part of the movie, but inside he's very sad. He misses his girlfriend and his dead father (played by who? RON F***N' JEREMY!). I wont go into the characters that much in this review, cause it feels like I'm revealing to much then.

The film has some cool cameos, as you read above Mr. Jeremy is in it. Troma's founder and vice-president Lloyd Kaufman also appears as one of the main characters evil father. His performance gave me a lot of laughs, he is pure evil in this one! It's also one of his best performances ever I think. Also, Brinke Stevens's in it.

One of my favorite scenes in the movie (without spoiling anything for you) was in the beginning when you see Henry masturbating with a condom, that got me laughing really hard. Also, seeing Ricky riding away in his small scooter, which looks really dumb and ridiculous.

Also, the music in the movie is really good. Everyone should check out the french band Banane Metalik and their song "Opus 666" which is in the movie a lot. Many of the songs in the movie are actually played and sung by the director and actor himself, John Birmingham.

The editing and filming is also really good. There's some cool stuff done in the editing room that I thought looked really cool.

Well, thats all I can come up with right now. I hope you find this review helpful and that you will see this movie when it gets out... or else...
