Editorial Reviews

When Chris Bryson was discovered limping down a street in 1988 wearing only a dog collar, the horrifying acts of one Kansas City resident were exposed. Bob Berdella, a local fascinated by the occult, had been spending his off hours torturing, sodomizing and murdering young men. Follow true crime author James Ellroy ('L.A. Confidential', 'The Black Dahlia') as he traces the history of Bob Berdella's sordid crimes with interviews of Bryson, gruesome reenactments, and disturbing musical numbers. Revisit the horror and try to come out alive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing despite itself October 30, 2012
Bazaar Bizarre is a strange little film. A mixed beast, partially a brutal documentary about a very heinous serial killer, Bob Berdella, and partially a campy festival of BADLY acted reenactments and worse music (it's from Troma, what do you expect?) the movie manages to be seriously disturbing despite its' infinite cheese. The segments of actual interview footage with the police, court reporters, and Berdella himself present a case riddled with problems--not least homophobia and a nonchalant attitude toward the disappearences of male prostitutes--and Berdella himself one of the most cold, unsympathetic characters one could interact with. Against this chilly backdrop, we get occasionally laugh-out-loud reenactments with B-movie acting, copious nudity, poor special effects and the omnipresent Terrible Music. It shouldn't work, but somehow it does. At the end, you'll ask yourself what the hell you just watched, but it's still worth watching. There's a lot of food for thought in there, buried in the dreck.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible, ridiculous, disgusting, shameful September 7, 2013
Throughout the whole movie we're guided by homophobic presenter, James Ellroy taking quick jabs with no factual information. There really wasn't anything I enjoyed about this whatsoever. It starts off like a cheesy instructional video from the 80's and just stays that way. It's full of shameless self-promotion through which we hear terrible music by some terrible "artist". Of course there are a few factual statements taken first-hand but this is just repeated. It's more of a morbid parody with not much to offer. There are some clips from an interview with the perpetrator but that really doesn't save this. There are disgusting reenactments portrayed here complete with a "music video" from supporting trash band also portraying these clips. It seemed as though this "James Ellroy" had nothing to contribute and maybe had something, himself, to hide in his own personal life relating to the subject. Just completely ridiculous and attempts in no way to bring closure to victims nor their families. A shameful release and not worth your time nor money. This whole documentary is on YouTube if you're still curious and I admit, the way it was summarized was intriguing yet I wouldn't recommend looking into it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Late getting it BUT. February 23, 2013
Verified Purchase
I received this movie without a charge. It was due to be to me on the 02-17-2013 but it did not reach my home until yesterday 2-22-2013. Because of the inconvience the seller told me they would not charge me for the film because he had been very busy and was sorry he had not got it out to me yet. So now I understand and think this seller was excellent in his appology for being late getting this film to me. He said he would not charge me for it because he was late getting it out. We kept in constant contact via e-mail and he seemed to be a very nice man. The movie you would not understand maybe how horrific this crime was if you were not a homicide detective as I was, and was assigned to this horrific man Bob A Berdella's horrific crimes against young male hustlers in downtown KC,MO. where he promised them he would get them high and when he got them home he knocked them out with medication or an iron bar. Then he kept them and had them tied to a bed like torture chamber and tortured them to death. Then he chopped them up and sent their remains to the Jackson County landfill. It was a crime that still very much haunts me today.

Okay I admit to purchasing sale DVDs and then watching them much later. This so called "documentary" is disturbing. The killer is very disturbing of course, but even worse, the storyteller here seems to enjoy telling the story. You have to ask yourself do you really want to see reenactments of sodomy and cannibalism? I cannot imagine how families of the victims might feel. I don't know anyone who wants to see various ways of sodomy, or demonstrations of cooking human flesh. Insult to injury, is the victims never really have a voice here. Where is the outrage at the random way they make for a good story, but nobody defends them. I won't go on, suffice it to say that this DVD is headed for my shredder. I don't even want to take the chance that the garbage collectors may take it out of the trash. Because that is what this is, TRASH!
If you want to see details of these atrocities against fellow human beings, then get therapy. This DVD is not fit for human beings, period. Just in case nobody else says it, I feel for the victims and their families. While they were ignored completely in this story, they do matter very much. Shame on Troma, and shame on the people who seemed to enjoy telling the story. Those people CHOSE the material willingly.
