Poop, crud and sludge.............. and JUST POOP!
25 April 2013 | by NicolasHunter500See all my reviews

OK! Everybody! It is time for a new episode of how to make a horror movie! But today, we are covering a special sub genre. It may not be real horror, it may be a genre only idiotic 13 year old boys would like, and it maybe a sub genre absolutely everybody hates, but, hey! there has to be a sub genre for everyone out there, Doesn't there?! OK, how to make a torture porn film: First, get a handful of terrible actors, and add them first.

secondly, get a ludicrous, idiotic script full of sleaze, gore, torture, implausible plots twist and turns and even more torture and then throw that into the mix!

third, Get a hack director who doesn't know how to make a horror movie ( and shouldn't be making horror films anyway) and throw that into the cooking pan! fourth, get a stupid and invincible villain who could not only rival a Kung Fu master with his marvelous strength and fighting skills, but, he can also set up traps that would be beyond what any normal human being would be capable of creating and setting up. Also, make sure he owns a huge, abandoned building that is positively full of traps and other horrible nasties to spice things up! Then, Get your local torture porn distributor to pick it up.

Finally, sit back and let the money roll in!!!!! Now, that is all we have time for, folks, but be sure to tune in next time!
