In Sexy Beastthe powerful gayngster Teddy Bass attends an orgy and notices another man, Harry, giving him a certain look. From a trailer for the film remake of Annie: Gets me places faster.
A group of relatives gather at the mansion of their wealthy aunts not grannies to celebrate their birthdays. What a lovely bunch of people they are: A mistrusting lesbian and her beautiful lover; a cowardly husband and his wife and two bratty kids; a lecherous nephew who hits on the lesbian's lover; a truly repulsive child-hating priest; a man with a wife young enough to be his daughter; and, a bike-riding spinster.
All these people have one thing in common: They are at this party to get on the good side of their aunts so they will be put in the will. While the party is going on a sinister-looking hag delivers a gift from a nephew who was disowned by the family for practicing black magic.
The gift is an ancient box and, when it is opened, demons possess the two elderly aunts. They proceed to literally rip apart their family.
From this point on the carnage doesn't stop. It is a shame that Tromawho distributes this film in the US and other territories, decided to release a severely edited cut, devoid of the gorier scenes to secure an R rating.
The DVD they released in America is also full screen, with the edited out scenes as extras on the disc. This is what you are missing in the R-rated version: People are ripped in half, beheaded, crushed between bars of an iron gate and one unlucky man gets his ass chewed off. The two possessed aunts corner the priest and hand him an automatic rifle.
They give him a choice: Either shoot himself where he will go to Hell for taking his own life or let the aunts poke out his eyes and eat his stomach where he will die and go to Heaven.
He takes the easy way out. This is one of the most original scenes on film in years as it induces shudders as well as laughs.
This is a bloody good show. A mad scientist kidnaps innocent people and performs illicit experiments on them, only to have one of his guinea pigs escape, which leads to events where a group of annoying young teens are stalked and killed.
Some viewers will find that enough to get through the next 86 minutes, but others will be asking for more, like logic and a coherent plot. One of his subjects breaks free, kills Viktor and escapes into the forest, where he kills a necking couple in a car.
He then dies and his corpse is picked clean by a flock of vultures, which then become infected and attack weekend fisherman Uncle Ben Reggie Bannister, who manages to get a PHANTASM reference in, even though his screen time is less than three minutes. After chowing down on his visiting niece and nephew played by director Robert Kurtzman's childrenUncle Ben is then killed when he is run over by an RV occupied by a group of idiotic twenty-somethings one of them portrayed by ultra-low-budget scream queen Misty Mundae, using the name "Erin Brown" here on their way back from an outdoor rave.
The vultures attack and disable the RV in a scene that will either have you howling with laughter or shaking your head in disbeliefforcing the group to flee into the woods, where they are either killed by the vultures who spit an acidic liquid out of their beaks!
The survivors manage to make it to Viktor's hidden laboratory, only to discover that the mad Russian has returned from the dead, infected with the Rage virus and anxious to continue his experiments.
The doctor and his two mutant sidekicks the results of his failed attempts continue his research, but the final two ravers fight back using whatever sharp instrument is handy and there are many to make their escape.
In typical modern horror film fashion, there's an unnecessary sting in the final shot that leaves this film open for a sequel. If it's blood and gore you want, look no further. All others stay away. The film nearly screeches to a dead stop once we meet the ravers, who are some of the worst actors this side of a H.
The final thirty minutes, where a deformed Divoff who is his usual professional, off-kilter self reappears and explains his motivations for his hatred of western culture It seems he found the cure for cancer, only to have his research stolen by U.
While Kurtzman and his newly-formed Precinct 13 Entertainment effects crew manage to supply as many practical effects as possible lots of squishy bladder effects and dismembered body partsthere are also some glaringly-bad CGI shots on view, especially whenever the vultures are in flight, which don't for a second look like anything but cheap computer animation.
Some of the blood effects are also enhanced by CGI and they are just as noticeable as the damned vultures.
That can either be read as a ringing endorsement or a dire warning. I'll leave that decision up to you. And what's up with all these new horror films having headache-inducing thrash metal soundtracks?
This one contains songs from Mushroomhead and The Fakers. Available on widescreen DVD with many bonus features including a behind-the-scenes doc that's longer than the film and twice as interesting from Screen Media Films.
Why would they want to? A scientist crosses the genes of a monkey and a rat and comes up with the title creation portrayed by Guinness World Book title holder for the shortest human being: Basically a series of stalk-and-slash scenes, this mundane film is real boring and will tax even the most patient viewer.
Illogical to the extreme, THE RAT MAN pushes the believability barrier by giving such a small creature the ability to slaughter full-size humans without much of a fight.Today's News: The Riley Report JUNE Tuesday - June 13, On This Day In History - The Marquis de Lafayette arrived in the American colonies to help with their rebellion against the British.
RABID GRANNIES () - Heavily edited (at least here in the States) but still outrageous horror-comedy from Belgium. A group of relatives gather at the mansion of their wealthy aunts (not grannies) to celebrate their birthdays.
What a lovely bunch of people they are: A mistrusting lesbian and her beautiful lover; a cowardly husband and his wife and two bratty kids; a lecherous nephew who hits. As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the majority-minority public schools in Oslo, the following brief account reports the latest statistics on the cultural enrichment of schools in Austria.
Vienna is the most fully enriched location, and seems to be in roughly the same situation as Oslo. Many thanks to Hermes for the translation from timberdesignmag.com Spokeo searches thousands of sources across 12 billion public records to look up the most recent owner of that number, whether it’s a landline or cell phone number, the location, and even the carrier if available.
Another common form is when a character is asked "Is it A or B?" they will respond "Yes" as if it were a question of Boolean logic rather than clarifying which specific one is the case (though this can also occur if the responder does not know the answer, or considers both answers correct.
