The Misled Romance of Cannibal Girl and Incest Boy (2007 Video)
User ReviewsReview this title
It's a 13 minute screener with no dialog but it does have some rockin metal music playing in the background instead, Troma's own Lloyd Kaufman makes a appearance(which is very funny how it starts), but meets a rather cruel and gory death.
From what I could tell the film makers didn't have a huge budget(notice the pregnant girl,lol). but they really try to offend and gross out the audience. Some great scenes of blood and gore,especially cannibalism,a very good and new way of killing someone with a scarf,and pure horror.
The trailer didn't show any incest,that i saw,even though there is part of a sex scene,but I guess they are waiting for the full DVD for that. I can say that the part that sort of confused me was the ending,after a fight with 3 people in the park.
To sum it up Cannibal Girl goes around town killing and eating people,Incest Boy is treated like a dog by his sister? Their paths cross and CG frees IB and they hook up from then on,going around the town killing and eating and having a fun gory time.
if you are a fan of independent movies,I..m talking real independent stuff and gore then check this movie out. I really hope someone comes along to release and distribute this film,good work guys

Just from the title alone I know that I was in for something unique and special. And the special came from the first frame of this film, when Lloyd Kaufman's smiling face came around the corner. Seconds later that smiling face was ground into chowder by the the titles female namesake, Cannibal Girl.
From that moment, the movie never really lets up. It is one gruesome, blood soaked, attack after another as Cannibal Girl goes on her tirade to feed her need for flesh and gore. That is until she meets Incest Boy. A sad, beaten down, defenses, and defeated boy who is defiantly kept on a short leash by his mommy. Cannibal Girl in her own special way decides to give Incest Boy a taste of freedom and let him feed on the world. It is love at first sight. Two crazy kids finding love and sanity in each other. Together frolicking through that crazier, twisted, sicko world that they both inhabit. Like an end of the word Romeo and Juliet. With a bit of a role reversal for the two title characters.
This movie is more experimental film or long form music video as there is no duologue. The audio of the story is solely driven by the music, which is quite good and sets the tone nicely for the piece. Tim Johnson does a good job of capturing the visceral feel of the film with his music. The same can be said of the look of the film itself. I have to give Richard Taylor credit for the wonderful look of this film. Being shot on 8mm gives it a grainy almost otherworld feel. It is like glimpsing children's programming in Hell. Full of slapstick and comedy and things to make you chuckle; while looking through the buckets of blood and gore that even at times splatter onto the lens. The two key actors of Janine Laurent as Cannibal Girl and Paul Lucero as Incest Boy, fit their roles. Janine Laurent is a, "sexy and knows how to work it" Goth. Paul Lucero is the sad and misunderstood Emo. While the acting is not Oscar caliber, it is more than serviceable for a film of this type. Jannie Laurent even manages to convey real feeling of innocence and sorrow a time or two just with a look. Making me wonder what she could do if she was allowed a speaking role.
All in all this was a fun film and if the title can be viewed as a mission statement, then I say mission accomplished. Because what the title says the movie delivers. In the end it is a love story that has a real heart, with a side of intestine, and a bucket o Blood. (Not to mention shameless nudity!)
