Dustin Mills wrote, directed, played Satan, provided the special effects, produced, provided the music and edited the film which he shot entirely in his Ohio apartment. Dave (Brandon Salkil) who draws dirty pictures for a living, has a heart attack while choking his chicken...a man's worse fear. He makes a deal with the devil to survive. Dave keeps his heart in a box as this Faustian tale takes on aspects of "Little Shop of Horrors."

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.

Wow I sat down to watch this movie and didn't really know what to expect given the synopsis and knowing I was in store for yet another Dustin Mills production. Like Puppetmonster Massacre and Zombie A-Hole this movie was equally funny as it was sickening and brilliant. The sound effects, the colorization, the visual effects...all more than very well done for a film of this budget. True independent horror at it's finest and I know independent horror very well...there really isn't a lot of grey area for me. It's either terrible or well done. But I really don't see anything terrible coming out of Dustin Mills. The story goes of a young 24 year old man searching for love, listening to his neighbors hump every night, and in bad need of a heart transplant. Dave soon discovers that satan is watching over him and decides to make a deal for his heart. Of course our friend did not read the fine print and the heart ends up needing to feed which includes Dave's own pet dog. I kept thinking of the films of Frank Hennennlotter while watching this most especially Brain Damage but most definitely done in Dustin Mills style. Every actor in the film did very well most especially Brandon Salkil and Nicole Gerity something I usually have to look past in independent films like this and it's nice not to have to do so. Highly recommended for lovers of independent films like me.

This is movie is hilarious. One of the best low budget horror films I have seen in a while. It has a strong story along the lines of Little Shop Of Horrors, its very well shot and has a great mixture of practical and CGI FX.

This semi-art house, semi-perverse film is only for lovers of true indie horror. That said, this was well-done considering its shoestring budget.

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.

A fantastic movie from up-and-coming director Dustin Mills. Mills is doing so many things better than most of the indie horror crowd at 1/100th the budget. This one is a rip-roaring good time from start to finish! Pick this one up today if you're a fan of sleazy no-budget cinema!

From the very begining of Dustin Mills' film, it's evident that budget was and issue. There is no denying it. But something very strange happens as you watch. It transends it's restraints and becomes the kind of B-movie fun Joe Bob Briggs would eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A sort of acid trip-Troma version of Donnie Darko (I know, right?), with some serious undertones that were welcome in a genre that normally would ignore such things. This is Skinemax material all the way and don't be suprised if you start recognizing the name Dustin Mills soon. The man puts in his time and the effort shows. This movie is NOT for everyone, but it IS for everyone who loves "blood, boobs, slime, tentacles and laughs", as the lush DVD packaging suggests on the cover. Enjoy and support True Independent Film!
