I don't know if you should watch this movie but I love it
on April 17, 2017
I genuinely don't know who I could ever recommend this movie to because objectively it's horrible in almost every regard. Aside from being horribly offensive to basically anyone, it looks like it was made with a budget of about 5 dollars and the effects are so bad I still can't tell how much of it is actually supposed to be serious. The editing is jarring, the quality of the audio is horrendous and randomly fluctuates between completely fine and incomprehensible, the dialogue is incoherent and makes no sense, and I feel like there are some really basic questions that this movie decides isn't even worth addressing let alone trying to answer, like how a ghost can give birth. But it's okay. I really love Nivek Ogre (Skinny Puppy lead, Repo! the Genetic Opera, Scream Park, etc) and Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw 2, House of 1000 Corpses/Devil's Rejects, Repo!, etc) and they're indisputably fantastic in this film and watching their scenes is great. Ogre plays confederate ghost doctor Harper Alexander as a gay dandy who's hanging off of Buckman's (Moseley) every word when he isn't giggling maniacally in a pig mask and murdering innocent yankees and it's a blast to watch, and he's so animated and lively that he alone gives the movie plenty of rewatch value. And just in general, there's some level of bizarre absurdity to this film that makes it so fun to watch over and over. As someone who adores cheap horror and Nivek Ogre and Bill Moseley this is the perfect movie to watch when I'm sad because as "bad" as it is it's fun and wild and goofy and there's some genuine.... spirit here, of some sort. It doesn't feel like there was absolutely no effort put forth, it just feels utterly bizarre and wacky. And if you have friends who can stomach it, watching it with them is loads of fun too, because there's plenty to point out and laugh over, whether you're laughing with it or at it. Five stars I genuinely am so glad I own it.
