Review

"Kamel Ahmed has made a horror film that delivers in every possible category and should keep fans of horror and film in general anticipating what he has up his sleeve next." --Russ Rutter, BloodtypeOnline.com

Product Description

Hip-Hop meets horror in this wildly unpredictable urban tale directed by Kamal (Jerky Boys) Ahmed. An up-and-coming white rapper Rapurious (Robert Oppel) tempers his music career and a shady past with a steady dose of mind altering drugs. But when his dealer gives him something special, the blond dreadlocked singer soon has a series of murderous hallucinations. Are they really tricks of the mind or is Rapturious really committing these blood-splattered crimes? With a wicked supporting cast including horror film maven Debbie Rochon and Joe Bob Briggs, this slick and stylistic urban tale twists and turns until the demonic truths are uncovered!

Format:DVD
Let me be frank. I don't like rap. Why did I buy this film then? I wanted to see John Bloom (a.k.a. Joe Bob Briggs) as a psychiatrist. Interestingly, while the music was about what I expected, Bloom, the famous and revered B-movie critic turned in one of the weaker performances here. The big surprise was the strength of Robert Oppel as gritty addict and rapper "Rapturious." Billed as "Hip-hop meets horror," I expected a low grade exploitation film, and while that element is there, there are some effective elements here, largely cemented by Oppel's performance which is genuinely creepy to watch. I wavered between a two and three star review, because there are some good points here, but I had to go with two overall as the script was frequently numbing (an excess reliance on pointlessly repetitive cursing, boring circular conversations that didn't further the plot, the unnecessarily lengthy old west prologue, etc.) and much of the acting was poor. Easily the worst performance is from Troma veteran Debbie Rochon, whose performance is both central to the story and wooden. Every time she was onscreen I was just waiting for the scene to be done, which was the effect I was expecting Oppel to have. Having been a long time follower of Bloom, I was expecting him to be better in his B-movie performance, but he was also made of oak, especially in the beginning. Interestingly, Bloom started out really stilted, but by the conclusion was seemingly more comfortable and was more enjoyable. I'm unsure if that was because they shot in sequence and Bloom grew into the role, or if I was just more interested in the story at the end. Also watch for the nuanced performance of Frduah Boateng as Freddie Bop. Read more ›
