DVD review: Violent Shit (1989)
I recently bought the Anniversary Edition Box Set containing the Violent Shit trilogy, it´s a limited edition and my box is numbered 888 of 999. There is english subtitles available which is a plus. I will be reviewing all the Violent Shit flicks in the near future.
Violent Shit is written, produced, directed by Andreas Schnass. He also plays Karl The Butcher and is responsible for the special fx. It´s a micro-budget slasher flick where a demented, wicked, deformed, cannibalistic killer named Karl The The Butcher slaughters people in many gory, bloody ways.
There is hardly a plot, the acting is awfully bad, no characters to talk about as they appear on the screen and then they die shortly thereafter. The small amount dialouge there is in the film is bad, poor camera work, the use of pixelated effects is just horrible, the frequent use of stop-frame slow motion, the sound quality is worthless (the echo effect on the sound is just horrible) and the editing is bad.
It´s a very graphic flick, almost all the violence appear on screen and some viewers will probably be shocked by brutality of the murders but the special fx are amateurish.
And to all this I should mention that it´s a boring film. Seriously Violent Shit looks like shit... Some of the defects is of course related to the source material, it´s originally filmed on a camcorder but the film is so badly made it´s endurance test to sit and watch it.
Rating: 0½ out of 7. Violent Shit is in my humble opinion shit, it´s worthless and boring. This is possibly one of the worst movie I´ve ever seen.
