Trash
1 October 2020 | by hampersnow-28905See all my reviews

Calling this movie awful trash doesn't even do it justice in describing how bad it is. I have never heard of writer/director Chew Barker, it doesn't seem like a real name, but I would hope he's never allowed near a movie set again. The story of a man who has himself committed to an Asylum, this fiasco still doesn't seem to have a plot and the script must have taken him no more then a few minutes to write. Everything about it is amateur hour, with cheap looking sets, the suggestion of gore but obviously no budget for any effects, no sense of style and small doses of sleaziness. At times it seems he was going for taking this story seriously and then it would become something avant garde, or at least try to. The entire movie is a failure, it doesn't entertain, it actually had me nodding off. Worst of all is the acting, reading off of cue cards bad. Some characters or maybe just the actors themselves were so unbearably awful every second they were on screen was torture. One actor was completely unintelligible. The first few minutes of the movie had me thinking it might be Ok, but this stinker sinks so fast and just stays there. There is no reason to watch this, not so bad it is funny, not gory, not interesting, not well shot, and hauls out every lunatic asylum cliché. Chew has only 1 credit to his name and it is Bedlam. If you watch this you will pray to never see him make another film.
