    Part of hooptober OCHO

    Trash that simultaneously tributes Blaxpolitation, Italian gothic horror a la Bava and good ol' slasher movies in a fun, operatic and psychedelic horror fest with Snoop Dogg as a 70s-era gangster seeking vengeance on everyone who wronged him. Begs you not to take it completely serious. Plenty of glorious Gothic imagery, abounds of fun icky gore, and swarms of wriggly maggots is projectiled from a rabid devil dog over a full dance floor in one of the nastiest sequences. Pam Grier is in there too! This was awesome!

    Absolutely bonkers and wildly entertaining slasher-flick. Sort of like Maniac, but just more fun and less cynical and dirty. Starting off with a young kid being accused of being a dirty boy by his mother, which makes the kid mildly overreact by forcing a chainsaw through his mothers skull. Jump many years forward and he still cuts up women with his chainsaw and takes body parts of each victim and stitch them together. It's relentlessly over-the-top…

    ★★★★½

    A beautiful, sad and thoughtful exploration of masculinity, ego, regret, and of jealousy so deep-rooted that it can destroy lives. Its almost entirely plotless, has hardly any dialogue and is slowly paced; everything is so magnificently understated and subdued to great, poetic effect. The performances are naturalistic and by its hypnotic visuals and rhythm (those training drills really have an almost musical feel to it), and its great use of music, it becomes a real treat with an ending so sad but so sublime.

    The little scene where he stands in the police car driving away, looking out of the window with the bars in front of him and tears in his eyes just killed me...
