After years of rotting in Joliet, Les, a wrongfully imprisoned street legend known as "The Ghoul", is released into a mad search through Chicago's back alleys for the man who slaughtered his mother and robbed him of his soul. Aided by mysterious benefactors, he must delve beneath the city into a modern labyrinth of gutters whose tendrils have grown deep while he was gone. What unfolds is a desperate tale of brute force tragedy set in the supernatural underworld of Chicago, where heroes are reduced to horror-shows, villains dream of their own demise, and good and evil prove to be antiquated concepts.

Wow. I am amazed by the amount of indie movies with fake reviews these days.
19 May 2017 | by PlantasmaSee all my reviews

Seriously folks. How more obvious can some of these fake reviewers be? If you click on the 3 main culprits (all have similar IMDb usernames) who wrote SUPER positive reviews, you will see that each of them have all recently joined IMDb and they all HAVE ONLY EACH REVIEWED ONE MOVIE. This one. Right. Nice try.

So obviously the rating here is way over-inflated through fake ratings of people who are involved with this terrible film in one way or another. The film is trash. I had an extremely hard time trying to sit through the horrible acting, the retarded dialogue, and the ridiculous attempt to be over-the-top gory. I love good indie films of any genre, but I don't have much tolerance for the dishonorable and dishonest methods of boosting reviews and ratings.

Movies that try too hard to be weird without any substance don't win. Should I even mention the absolutely terrible soundtrack that doesn't fit the pacing of the movie? Or the ridiculously bad music video that starts the movie and seems to interject itself in the middle with a random girl playing piano in the back of a truck? No, no I'll let you torture yourself with this tripe.
