Well, on the positive side the starting credits looked good. I mean, lovely font. Also, some nice cinematography. Unfortunately the narrator speaks over them using a voice not too dissimilar to South Park (keep in mind I watched the English language version, so perhaps the German one is better). I thought it was a joke but no, it was deadly serious. It really really went down from there. Incredibly bad, stilted acting reminiscent of a bad porn film. Audio (again, keeping in mind I watched the English version) that would go in and out - at times making it impossible to hear what the actors are saying. Not that that really mattered - the storyline (for want of a better word) was simply an excuse to jump from one scene of people having their heads cut off, to another with people having their heads exploded, to another of people having axes being embedded into their heads. Don't get me wrong - people also tend to lose limbs as well, but there are a lot of heads being exploded.
If you want to see a lot of blood being splattered around, and yes at one point there's some chainsaw action, then this might be worth considering. The painfully bad acting, bad story, and bad audio (at least with the English version) amongst other things makes this otherwise quite difficult to watch unless as part of a drinking game - you know: take a drink every time someone's head explodes - although you would be risking alcohol poisoning . Plan 9 had a certain amount of charm to it. This doesn't.
