Gutterballs doesn't make a strike for me!
31 December 2014 | by tdrishSee all my reviews

Congratulations, Gutterballs. You are the only horror movie that has ever succeeded in offending me. Are you happy? You should be! I've seen many horror movies, good, bad, sick, twisted, over the top...but GUTTERBALLS takes the doughnut! How was this golden event achieved? Well, for starters, let's get down to business with the problems this film has. Does a rape scene in a movie need to exceed eight seconds, much less 8 MINUTES? I think we get the point, I can see how you want to tie this in with a story, I just can't understand why anyone would be entertained by watching this unnecessary BS for an extended period of time. I Spit On Your Grave didn't even do that. Let's explore some other major problems with GUTTERBALLS...do you have to drop the F bomb every 30 seconds? I once read that Tigerland ( 2000) was in the Guiness Book Of World Records for the most swear words in a movie, but I could honestly tell you that this movie doesn't hold a candle to that, because this is the kind of movie that makes you want to take a shower after you're done watching it. Now, next bash: the killings. Can you tell me why, after 30 or 40 years of making trash films like this, that we are not putting a little more effort into making it look a little more realistic. Even the blood on the movie poster looks fake, for crying out loud, is that the same movie poster for Maniac back in the 80's? Okay, on to our next problem: the story. Okay, let's be fair, it's a slasher movie, does there need to be one? As if all the things I mentioned doesn't make this a shotty thing to watch, Gutterballs has the most silly arse costume they make the killer walk around in. ( And I mean walk, lot of walking, lazy, lazy walking) It doesn't even come close to being remotely scary. The mask almost looks like a logo for a worldwide known company, was there even a discussion about any of this before they shot this movie on a cheap set? On the bright side ( not very bright), we have some strong acting performances by a few of the actors and actresses. And you'll know who they are, trust me, this movie doesn't try to hide the bad actors from the good. A couple of the kills were worth noting. I want it to be clear that the 5 stars I've given this was because of the acting performances, otherwise it would have been 4. Enjoy the fake blood, folks!
