The dialouge ranged from bad to campy fair. Unfortunately the acting was really sad with fake voices. The special effects were cheap. There is a scene of blood explosion. The "boobs" bragged about on the DVD cover aren't worth watching attached to pot bellied actresses.
The funniest scenes are the sex scenes where the guy screws up the dirty talk. The film is designed to be campy, but misses the entertaining aspect.
Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, and nudity...it opens that way.
After suffering some serious heart complications, fantasy erotica artist David (Bath Salt Zombies, Easter Casket) strikes a deal with the Devil for a new heart. He didn't turn to Medicaid or venture to Canada for cheaper solutions…nope. The Devil had just what he needed. And with that David's heart is replaced by a tentacle monster in a wooden chest. Just one problem: the monster needs to be fed living flesh in order to survive. The monstrous heart is eloquently voiced by an Bill Nighy sound-alike.
Writer/director Dustin Mills (Bath Salt Zombies) clearly made an effort with this script. His writing is far from brilliant, but he definitely deserves credit for delivering far more than I've come to expect from the vast majority of direct-to-DVD horror. Theatrical devices like overt melodrama, narration and asides add an irregular flavor to this film. Whereas this flavor may please the art house crowd, some may find it over-the-top and distasteful.
Speaking of distasteful… Is there a lot of sexuality and perversion? Yes. But I see it as being used more as an exploitative "device" than purely as a crutch to cover the film's shortcomings. There's masturbation, which seems to reveal our protagonist's desperation, and nudity, which does not utilize the typical stripper-cast actresses. There are also several sex scenes with little to no nudity.
Some of the acting in this is real crap (sorry, but I'm referring especially to Dustin Mills' cameo) and the effects are about as cheap as they come. But considering this film had a budget of about $1500, I think I'll let it slide.Read more ›
