Storyline

In the city of Bronston, staying alive is a twenty four hour job... A wild bunch of hooligan kids who call themselves the Red Skulls have been the dominant street gang in the city for years. But everything changes one night when Uri, the leader of the Skulls, sees his best friend hacked to pieces by a rival group. Uri decides to get out of Bronston before he shares his friend's same fate. The only problem is the rest of the gang doesn't plan on letting him out so easy. The new self-appointed leader, Lester, has set a trap to lure Uri back, but without Uri in charge, all is not well within the gang's ranks. A traitorous member has set a trap of his own for Lester and the rest of the Red Skulls are about to become the victims. Now, Uri is about to find out the only thing more dangerous than a backstabbing street gang... is a mutated, cannibalistic street gang! Written by Luke Campbell

Gangs of new york with a psychobilly twist.
29 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

After his best friend is killed by a rival gang Uri, Leader of the The Red Skulls decides to give up gang life before he ends up dead just like his friend. Meanwhile The Red Skulls plan their revenge for the death of a fallen member after Long time Red Skull Lester takes over as leader. After a raid on the rival gangs warehouse The Red Skulls discovered a weird red liquid in jars that when consumed turn the person into blood thirsty murders. Slipped into the gangs booze supplies by one of their own things take a turn for the ultra gory and violent in this entertaining and unique film by the Campbell brothers Andrew and Lucas.

The best way I can describe this movie is Troma meets Gangs of new york with a psychobilly twist and just a dash of The warriors for good measure. I really enjoyed this film it's not your average run of the mill horror flick it has a interesting enough story and moves at a good pace. The acting is nothing special but is made up tenfold with the beautiful practical special effects .

The Gore in this movie is amazing very graphic and raw specially for a low budget movie. The throat slashes in this movie really blew me away and the pure brutality of the last 30 minutes or so of the movie makes it well worth a watch. This movie won't be for everyone if you find yourself mostly only liking the mainstream horror hits then may be disappointed. But if you enjoy experiencing something different then The Red Skulls may well be a hidden treasure for you just as it was for myself.

For you Netflix subscribers The Red Skulls is also currently available via Instaview so if you're in the mood for some good old fashion violence and gore queue The Red Skulls and bask in the showers of crimson that this movie produces. And I should also mention it has a soundtrack that rivals return of the living dead in levels of pure f**king awesome.
