Editorial Reviews

It's country folk versus city slickers when homicidal Texas lawn trimmers Billy Buck and Jacob head to the wilds of the Long Island suburbs to ply their trade. But these resourceful good ol' boys don't just use lawnmowers for grass; they find that people make for good mowin', too! Soon those green, immaculate lawns are dripping red with the blood of unsuspecting yuppies, and you might be next! Complete with ghoulish special effects and a nasty twist ending, here's another outrageous mixture of over-the-top gore and sick laughs from underground Yankee filmmaker Nathan Schiff. You'll never look at your weed whacker the same way again!

What happens when you mix Super-8 film, social satire, Texan gardeners, amateur actors and chunks upon chunks of raw meat? You get the most disgusting movie I've ever seen! Thank goodness this film has it's sense of humor in the right place, or else "They Don't Cut The Grass Anymore" would be unwatchable.
I love blood and guts in horror movies, but this is the most extreme display of bodily mutilation I've yet encountered. Super-8 maestro Nathan Schiff is responsible for this satiric take on the corruption of affluence. But rather than make any kind of bold statement, Schiff appears more interested in displaying endless close-ups of faces and bodies torn into mush. Perhaps there is some twisted point amid all the carnage. There are occasional lines of dialogue hinting that a more complex issue is simmering beneath the grue, but we never really get a chance to see this. (Fans of Schiff movies however, may gain better insights by carefully following the extras on this one.)
Despite the drawbacks of incredibly uneven performances, which range from the vigorous (the killers) to school-play level (the victims) and what surely must be the cheapest movie to ever see a wide commercial release, "They Don't Cut The Grass Anymore" works on a level of utter psychosis that leaves one in dizzied bewilderment. Extra features include an interview with Schiff, the films director, and some of the stars. It also has a running commentary by Schiff, who appears to know exactly what he's talking about, and claims the film cost under a thousand dollars! The disc also includes short subjects he made as a kid. This movie is cheap, gross, but by God it had me laughing! An absolute party down "must have" for when a keg is tapped. Should possibly carry a Surgeon General warning on the case though!

This film looks and plays like an amateur effort and it shows; the feel and film style is sort of like a student film project. A couple of psycho gardeners go on a gory rampage in this simple film that contains basically no character development aside from developing the psychotic gardener characters, and I didn't think it had any suspense. Some of the suburbian locations are nice to look at because they're brightly lit, and some of the films sunny and lively atmosphere is pretty good at times; however, the film is just basically made for violence and gore. The movie basically revolves around these two psychos, and there isn't really any reason to recommend it unless you want gore. These effects are a cheap amateur effort, but they are extremely detailed and prolonged; you see these scenes that have bodies being torn apart in extremely graphic detail. Some of the gore in this film is completely over the top, but if you're picky involving special FX don't buy; these cheap effects aren't for mainstream horror fans. If you want plot, sex, nudity, great acting, suspense, and something else besides amateur gore then get something else. The directing isn't great, but I still thought the film was decently directed. The film plays as a combination of camp and serious horror. With the exception of some parts, the film is usually fast-paced; and there's plenty of violence. The psychotic gardeners are also well developed and interesting characters that have personalities that are campy, but they are also violent and mean.

The DVD looks great considering that this is a cheap and old obscure film. It's sharp and bright with excellent color and contrast. The entire thing has a lot of marks and grain with some places looking more messed up than others, so don't expect a clean picture.

I rented this movie from a video store years ago based on the cover art. After I watched it I was in awe! I knew nothing of Nathan Schiff's films before seeing this, now I own all of them! Seeing this was a surreal experience because the gore is so over the top that after the opening scene is over you'll hope your okay mentally. I like movies shot on the east coast particularly New York and New Jersey, They Don't Cut The Grass Anymore was filmed on Long Island (probably Baldwin Harbor) and the peaceful suburban scenery makes the violence that much more appalling. In terms of originality the plot is fresh, two guys from Texas come to Long Island to disembowel yuppie couples. Also the exploitation film the guys see in the theater is so disgusting I cringed. Low budget exploitation at it's best!

LMFAO! That's what I call a bad movie lol! But does that mean that you shouldn't see it? NO WAY! It's so *beep* bad that it's *beep* hilarious! It doesn't have a plot (two lawn trimmers kill people in brutal ways. That's it.), it doesn't have a main character (well, except the two killer lawn trimmers), it's stupid, the acting sucks (that's NOT a bad thing), the dialogue is hilariously bad ("please don't rape me" lol) and it's very gory, but the gore is probably the cheapest and most unrealistic gore ever! They used freaking blow up dolls for some of the scenes and they used ropes/pieces of clothes for the guts LOL! Anyway, it's definitely not for everyone, but I know a lot of fans of so bad they're good movies that would love it! It's something lol!

I really don't know how to rate it... I feel like rating it something under 2/5, but at the same time I feel like rating it 5/5 lol! Ok, I'll go with 5/5 lol.
