worth watching as a gorehound
8 November 2011 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

I have seen Marc Waltz Road Rip and it wasn't my thing, there wasn't any red stuff available. But here he got the help of Ittenbach, so you know it could contain some bloody stuff. Luckily for Marc it did. The other problem with German flicks is that they mostly are spoken in German and never have any subtitles. But this flick was also released outside Germany and that version did contain subs.

There are some famous German names in this flick like Manoush and Thomas Kercmar, sadly Thomas (Barricade, Angel Of Death 2) couldn't convince me and that's a bit sad, most of the acting is mediocre, you can see them watching were they have to say their line.

The story itself is okay but it's a bit of the same, youth walking around and making the wrong turn. Here they arrive in a city to take a plane for their holiday but they have all the day to visit the city because their plane leaves at evening and it's only morning. They decide not to go shopping but to walk around. By entering a club things go wrong.

But it's the gore that delivers and makes it watchable. Don't get me wrong, it isn't bad but it goes a bit slow sometimes. Nevertheless, there are some gory typical Ittenbach shots in it that makes it a worth hunt down for the gorehounds. It's not that easy to find a copy outside Germany, I found it at a German horror convention were a Swedish shop sold copies of it.

Gore 3/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 4/5 Story 3/5 Comedy 0/5
