Editorial Reviews

Cult horror director and special fx master Brett Piper has built an impressive filmography featuring some of the most outrageous B monster movies produced over the last 20 years including Screaming Dead, Psyclops, Arachnia, Bite Me, Shock-O-Rama and Bacterium. For this Special Edition DVD release, Piper s 2000 horror outing Drainiac has been newly telecined from its original negatives and pre-mastered in hi-definition, image and sound re-edited, fx-enhanced, and presented in 1.78:1 widescreen - offering fans a never-before-seen cut and the definitive version of the film.



By all appearances, it s just another deserted old house moldering away in the New England countryside rundown, lonely, forgotten. The rural landscape is littered with hundreds of them. But this house is different, horribly different, because below the crumbling foundation and within rusting pipes dwells some thing that is about to be unleashed. Julie Ashbrook and a group of friends have taken up residence in the house while they clean it up for a planned restoration. Strange and inexplicable occurrences involving water is just the beginning as gruesome death-by-plumbing takes its toll on the terrified inhabitants. Drip by steady drip the fleshless entity begins to take shape, and Julie and her friends soon come face to face with the bloodthirsty monster in all its aqueous evil - an ancient water demon that wants to tear them apart and flush them down the toilet.

This movie definatley gets a B-Tastic award. It's bad, really bad, but definatley fun to watch.

There are so many holes in the plot I can't even believe it. The biggest one is when the kids are sittin on the couch staring at a wall and somehow see the girl getting attacked outside, on the other side of the house. Rather than list them all out I'll let you find them out yourself. The father in this film is hilarious; unintentionally. He is the most over-bearing a-hole I have ever seen in a movie. He never stops harrassing his daughter at every moment he can. One example is when the daughter is having nightmares she keeps tossing and turning in bed. She wakes up. Somehow the dad was not bothered at all by her tossing and turning, but the sitting up thing apparently was too far. She sits up and you hear him yell up "What the hell is going on up there?"

The film focuses on using stop motion animation and reverse film to make the special effects. The plot is totally linear, leaving no room for suprise. When things get icky this film brings in the cliche' old mand who somehow knows everything about whats going on. I'll leave it at that.

The most amusing thing about this movie has got to be the packaging. The ghoul on the cover IS NOT in the movie at all. The house on the cover is also in no way the house where the film takes place. To top it off, ther are pictures on the back that are also not in the movie. The most notable one is the picture with the girls who has her eyes sucked out. Not only is that not in the move, but that character is also no where to be found in the entire film. The film description on the back has 3 innacuracies on it. First, she never calls her friends they just show up. Second, the father is not gone on business, he goes drinking. I can't quite remember what the third is right now. The package I'm referring to is the one with the blue guy on the front. I've seen this film with different packaging of which I can't speak on.

This movie was all around bad. Yes, I was expecting a B movie but this was a really bad B movie. Honestly, I didn't even find it hokey or funny which some of these movie can pull off. Don't waste your time or money.

If you were looking for a cool a B movie for a weekend night, this is the place to go. From the start it moves fast. I guess you could guess from the title it involves a drain. Yes indeed it does, and a giant glob of murdering goo that eats people. It takes place in a old rundown house that a family tries to flip. The acting is passable, and sometimes funny. I think this is one of director Brett Pipers best works. Ok it is not a high budget film, but it works. Don't expect Star Wars effect in the film, but the effect are pretty decent. For those who want Star Wars effects avoid this. For those who love B films and seek out cool ones, this is way cool. The cover is great too on the DVD. Much better than some of the movies on the SY-Fi channel.

I happened upon this movie because I'm a fan of one of the actors, Alexandra Boylan. She is awesome in Home Sweet Home and is also in the Indie film Bellflower. I think she is a superb actress but this movie doesn't do her justice. It doesn't do any of the actors justice really . . . it is a bad B movie but that is also what makes it great. Definitely fun to laugh at/with.
