I’ve just watched this one…
I knew it was a low-budgeted movie, but the ensemble looks astonishingly cheap. I wonder if there was real booze in bottles or just tea pretending to be whiskey. Unfortunately, the director, in spite of his best intentions, is unsurprisingly unable to make this better. The first half isn’t totally engaging, full of really badly edited action sequences, some hand-held camerawork and other bad stuff, while I found the second half a bit more interesting. Sure, it’s still as amateurish as the first one, but one can spot apart some incompetence surreal-like scenes which weren’t too bad and left me even fascinated. Nonetheless it doesn’t diminish the fact it’s a poorly directed flick with some bad and good ideas merged in one piece, the upshot is rather negative though. Anyway it remains a nice curio, even though it’s an unsuccessful effort. Not to mention an unintentionally amusing acting that made me chuckle a couple of times. I loved some expressions of actors’ faces, particularly this one ::):
As for the ending, I think it was “trashingly” creepy - it’s bad, but it left me with an uneasy feeling, so I guess it succeeded in astonishing me in its own way. It reminds me something else as well:
To sum up, the first half sucks, while the second one manages to conjure up a genuinely bizarre climax that will leave you… disgusted or fascinated with its trashiness. Kinda. 3/10
Oh, I forgot to mention - I love the soundtrack.
