Did you all expect this to be a serious film? Honestly?

The reviews of this movie honestly befuddle me to no end. The only way the movie could be rated this low by so many people, is that somehow, for some reason, they were expecting a serious film of some sort or another. Assuming the title itself didn't give them a rather obvious clue that this was to be a Herschell Gordon Lewis homage. And if they were..... well, if the first 5 minutes of the movie didn't serve them notice that they were dealing with a movie reveling in a flamboyant sense of camp and bad taste, then perhaps they would have been better off watching some pretentious art film. 'Twould serve them right for taking themselves sooooo very, very seriously.

This movie is a cheaply made gore fest, masquerading as a comedy, no excuses. Not that that's a bad thing, mind you. Sort of Grand Guignol in fish net stockings and garters. Evoking screams even as you laugh at it's over the top absurdity. Is it for all tastes? No, certainly not. But at what it tries to do, it succeeds at, for the most part. For me, at least, the movie struck a delicate balance between horror and comedy, two extremes that are fairly difficult to make work very effectively together, though it must be said, it succeeded far better with the latter than the former.

If you liked this genre (splatter comedies.... a rather narrow genre of film-making, to say the least), check out any one of the following, 2001 Maniacs, Frankenhooker, Psychos In Love, Bloodsucking Freaks, The Toxic Avenger, and Brain Damage. All cut from the same bolt of bloody cloth. And all equally worthwhile in their own way. Just try not to confuse any of them with Gandhi, okay? Class dismissed.

A Twisted Culty Cheese Fest Done Right!

Two brothers are working to awaken the soul of an ancient goddess- the Goddess of Immorality- named Shitar.

They are doing this to fulfill the dying mission of their serial killer uncle- or, well, for the brain of their uncle...which they keep in a jar and communicate with telepathically.

First, they need to fashion Shitar a body...compiled of pieces, taken from women of immoral standing.

Then, they need the necessary components for a blood sacrifice. Mostly the internal organs of sluts, and a virgin for Shitar to consume during the blood feast.

So...they set it up...a Lemurian feast...the first one in 5 million years...and they invite all the vegetarians of ill repute they can find.

Even though the brothers were putting the bodies of the women they killed in their food, and selling it as vegetarian food at their diner.

The blood feast is actually pretty bad ass.

I was expecting less from what leads up to it...which is an absolute cheese fest. But it does have it's charm- in a Peter Jackson meets Henenlotter sort of way. All the characters are purposefully over-acted. Giving the whole thing a surreal vibe. And there's lots of gore! It's really budget...sometimes humorously so, but it works. And when it counts...the special effects are excellent.

I really think director Jackie Wong sets you up to be disappointed- with all the cheese- only to blow you away with the kickass character at the end! Sure, it's not wholly original. But it's still pretty awesome.

I really enjoyed this film. It's a twisted, culty cheese-fest done right! And it's a helluva lot of fun.

Definitely worth a watch.

6.5 out of 10.

Blood Diner

Oh boy, who came up with this turkey? It begins with the suicide by cop of a deranged individual who is resurrected by his two nephews, well, his head is. The suicide was clearly planned in advance, this is all part of a nefarious scheme dating back thousands of years, a scheme whose completion requires human blood, and a few other things.

What else do we have? Well, the villains of the piece are clearly not the sharpest knives in the drawer, the cops are moronic, but not all of them, one lady detective is too feisty for her own good and makes the mistake of entering the diner where the villainous brothers are based without a warrant or back up, a fatal mistake, well nearly fatal in her case, but there is no shortage of dead damsels herein. And a few dead guys.

Is this film really a comedy? That remains to be seen, fortunately it has one strength, it is relatively short at around 72 minutes.
