Father's Day is a wild, violent, sometimes trippy, sometimes old-school, always fun little flick best viewed at night (the film even opens with a commercial telling you you're watching it late at night, a midnight movie so to speak) and with a group of friends who are ready to laugh.
Boy watches father raped and killed, gets eye cut out, grows up, wants revenge, kills wrong person, goes to prison, 10 years later is let out, seeks peace in the woods. That's only the first 5 minutes! What happens next will please fans of other Troma releases, as well as fans of "Hobo With A Shotgun" and "Planet Terror", two other films that are a little more well-known but equally as good.
The film gets even crazier when our group of heroes go to hell, literally.
Good for a few laughs and some over-the-top gore/nudity. Movie: 4/5 stars.
The blu-ray has good video quality, considering the source material was made to look like an old movie much like "Hobo With A Shotgun" and "Planet Terror". Some scenes have a lot of detail to them, while others don't. Video: 4/5 stars.
Audio is okay at best. I wasn't particularly blown away, but it serves the "feel" of the movie well. Audio: 3/5 stars.
There aren't any extras on this one-disk blu-ray edition, though I've heard other editions of the movie come with more disks and some extra content. I own this version, the single disk blu-ray, with only a theatrical trailer. Extras of single-disk blu-ray: 0/5 stars.
Overall: 4/5 stars. I don't find this film as memorable as some of the other crazy films I've mentioned, especially "Planet Terror", but its still good and provides some fun entertainment for fans of this genre. Video is good, Audio is okay. Rent it if you're not sure. Buy it if you enjoy other films in this genre.
Rating: Not Rated, likely NC-17. Language is comical, Nudity is raw and Sexual content tends to be very mature. The violence is over-the-top and extreme, but some of it can be shocking (genital mutilation, for example) and some of the violence mixes in with sexual content, making it possibly uncomfortable for some viewers. Ages 18 and up.
Known as the "Father's Day Killer", Chris Fuchman (Mackenzie Murdock) is a rapist and murderer whose preferred victims are men who are fathers. The sons of two of his victims, Twink (Conor Sweeney), and Ahab (Adam Brooks), join forces with priest Father John Sullivan (Matthew Kennedy), to try and track down the killer. The search causes Ahab to make contact with his estranged sister Chelsea (Amy Groening), and she is just one of many who are in danger, as Fuchman begins to kill again.
Wild, raunchy, and gory, the adventure eventually leaves the bounds of reality, becoming quite surreal, and sickly twisted. Violent, irreverent, sadistic, and disgusting, this is the kind of outrageous stuff Troma is known for. Some of it is so extreme, that viewing it could result in irreparable brain damage, for those who are sensitive. Yet, for all blood and insanity, the story runs deeper than it may appear.
The four disc limited collector's edition (5000 units) includes both the Bluray and DVD versions of the movie, a DVD with bonus materials, and a CD with songs from the film's soundtrack. Unfortunately there isn't too much in the way of making of featurettes, but otherwise, the bonus material is pretty solid. The film often goes for a sleazy grindhouse look, so the Bluray does not always provide the visual enhancements you would typically expect. For those with a casual interest, the DVD edition might be sufficient to capture the brutal experience that is Father's Day.
This is a Troma style film. It is a spoof on grindhouse films and perhaps even spoofs Troma films which are spoofs themselves. The dialogue is campy and laughable. The film is on the sacrilegious side of the spectrum.
The film has names such as "Sleazy Mary" who runs the "Low Life Club" a strip joint where Ahab teams up with his sister. My has she grown. I enjoyed the silly dialogue, even the discussion of the metaphor that wasn't a metaphor.
Perv guide: F-bomb, sex, male rape, ample nudity including male full frontal which may or may not be real. I would guess this film would have less appeal than "Toxic Avenger" but more appeal than "Blood Sucking Freaks."
