So what you have heard is correct, this movie is a mess. The final product is about as competent as the shot-on-video films released in the early 2000's when DV filmmaking took off. What makes Verotika stand out is the editing, or lack there of. I have the feeling every bit of video was used just to stretch it out to 90 minutes (even alternate takes of scenes you saw five minutes before). Sometimes this is a bad thing. How many low budget films have you seen that were filled with people walking endlessly, or driving endlessly? But in this case, at least for the first two stories, it ads to the train wreck appeal.
So many bewildering happy accidents that are laugh-out-loud funny. Moments where they didn't get the coverage they needed, but went with it, leading to head scratching edits and bizarro continuity errors. Zooms and shots that go on just a little too long and make you giggle. And the acting, oh the acting. The strangest thing is there are a few performances, little side characters, that are actually passable. But this makes the bad actors that much worse. Sure she has big boobs and collagen filled lips but was she really the best person for the part?
Sadly as the second story starts to wrap up the film starts to become a slog. The third story is the weakest of all, the padding REALLY feels like padding. Not even the couple over the top blood bursts and various silly moments can make it watchable (really THAT'S what you're tying your horse to?)
All-in-all, Verotika is probably best viewed with a rowdy crowd, or drunk/stoned with a bunch of friends and probably only once. "Hey Mystery Girl! Over here!"
