Editorial Reviews

When a middle-aged gunslinger is hired to kill a brothel owner practicing barbaric acts on his prostitutes, he may not have time for his usual, stylish methods of assassination. And he may not be killing for the reason he thinks.

Print is a hitman servicing the waning days of the wild, wild West. He accepts a job to kill Heinrich Kley, a German brothel owner who administers his own unique form of socialized medicine to the `soiled doves' of his who become pregnant. However, when Print is also asked to take on a protégé - a young gunman whose head may not be entirely on straight - things are destined to go from bad to worse real quick in the Wild Dogs Production of THE SCARLET WORM.

WORM is, definitely, not for everyone. It's a B-movie western clearly with European influences not seen in stateside release in, quite probably, four decades. There are no current box office draws in the cast, and much of its ramshackle Western sets resemble contemporary theme park settings and/or budget tourist trap destinations located anywhere between Benson and Bisbee. At times, the film seems little more than a bloated community theatre production of a spaghetti western ... but don't be fooled, cinema fans, because that's quite probably the way the makers had intended it all along. Shot on a budget of reportedly $25,000, WORM is as much as exercise in film appreciation as it is the art of modern film-making.

In short, WORM came about thanks to the online friendship of a group of like-minded film junkies. They met in various forums, exchanged information about film likes and dislikes, and they decided that their fandom and their friendship deserved something even greater. So they got together and pooled their resources and efforts into making the kind of film they loved and they wanted to see returned to audiences. The end result is not only a film like THE SCARLET WORM but also a handful of similar second rate features with schlock titles like THE MINSTREL KILLER and APOCRYPHA.

I picked up on the slight buzz this title had as far back as last year. It finally was released and I snapped it up. Now, my wife isn't into violent/gory movies and I purchased this thinking it would be tame enough for her delicate sensibilities. Afterall, my only experience with cowboy flicks hasn't been much and what I have seen is mostly provided by the often bloodless John Wayne films, so I figured this would be perfect for us to watch.

I was dead wrong. Within the first 20 minutes we see a man's arm obliterated by gunfire, another man killed and stuffed into the corpse of a cow (the effect is sort of creaky due to the obvious low budget BUT STILL!) and a rather strong abortion scene complete with the severing of the bloody fetus. The violence, gratuitous nudity and salty language didn't perform well with My old lady but the last straw for her was the abortion scene. She left disgusted and went to bed. Did that deter my viewership? No, not in the slightest. Somehow or other, I was hooked to this peculiar genre outing where there are no good guys, just bad people trying to rationalize their atrocious behavior whether through religion or warped codes of honor.

The film teeters from trash to eloquence in a devil may care manner that will probably be off putting to many but I just wallowed in it. Sure, the budget constraints are obvious a lot of the time and some of the theological discussions brought up in dialogue is overlong but never poorly written. The advertisement on the box makes big of two old thespians but I've never heard of them but be damned if they (and mostly everybody else for that matter) gave fine to excellent performances.

Overall this was one of the most surprising blind buys I've ever had. A truly underground gem of a movie and one that will probably hold up on repeated viewings.

The Scarlet Worm is a significant film in Michael Fredianelli's directorial career for two reasons: It's the first film he has made with a substantial budget (still well beneath what is generally regarded as a "substantial budget") and it is his first film to be officially released on home video (although his debut feature Pale Blue Balloons was self-released on DVD). With a small role in the film, in addition to his job as editor, co-producer, and director, The Scarlet Worm gives Fredianelli an opportunity to flex his muscles as a filmmaker more than any of his previous efforts. In his past features he has displayed an uncanny ability to direct good action sequences that usually require a budget to execute. With the higher-budget, he has been given freedom to create these scenes in much higher-quality and, what's more; the rest of the film looks just as good. Fredianelli still seems financially restrained from displaying the extent of his talent, but this is certainly a step in the right direction.

Written by David Lambert, the story is told in five chapters (The Quickening, Ensoulment, Dilation, Curettage, and Expulsion) and opens in the year 1909, following Print (Aaron Sielstra, who also does the original music), a part-time barber who doubles as a religious and philosophical assassin. Print works for a wealthy cattle baron named Mr. Paul (Montgomery Ford) and is assigned the task of training Lee (Derek Hertig) in the art of killing. In doing so, Print is in the process of "painting his masterpiece" by targeting Heinrich Kley (Dan van Husen), owner of Kley's Drink & Billiards, a local brothel.
