it do have a few good moments but fails being an ultra low budget
22 October 2012 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

Over here we had a huge convention with over 10000 people attending it. Naturally it's the way to promote your flick. Vacuum Killer was promoted together with the director and the publisher. I grabbed me a signed copy but was warned that it was a grindhouse release.

Not only that, it came with another flick by the same director , Chris Lamota. Chris did most of it under different names like Doctor Chris or Chris Lamot. By saying grindhouse you are trying to clock in on the success of that genre but it is also a disguise for not saying, ultra low budget.

And indeed, it's a ultra low budget but the editing was rather good, sad was the fact that the sound in the scene with the punks wasn't that good at all. For the night scene's no extra lightning was used. Released now in 2012 it's a bit late for a flick of 2006.

The acting wasn't that good at all from some and even became laughable when cult actor Jacques Verbist (of Rob Van Eyck fame) was trying to speak French.

The movie itself was a good effort to make a horror with a unused attribute, a vacuum machine as killing object. But it fails here and there because some scene's did take too long or didn't make any sense at all. The postman was a perfect example and even became annoying after a while.

It did have a few good elements and some nice effects but being a ultra low budget it fails sometimes to deliver the goods. I was surprised of the full frontal nudity as gratuitous as it can be. Lovers of trash will love this but gorehounds or slasher buffs leave this for what it is.
