it's goal: cult classic, it's fate: laughing stock
14 June 2010 | by fiftypiesSee all my reviews

Mad Cow was only somewhat entertaining. Aside from the 2 minutes of suspense, it was ridiculously stupid and poorly written.

It reminds me of the American film Mad Cow released in 2008 which was equally as poorly made.

I think it reaches out to only a very specific and very small population. you have to be alright with fake looking gore and borderline gore porn. And even then, it leaves quite a lot to be desired.

The filmmakers should have invested in cg rather than poor actors who were paid more than their lack of talent warranted.

The whole movie was very awkward as though it was deliberately trying to be bad. Anybody who would waste time and money to make (and moviegoers-to watch) something like this is clearly mental.
