DVD review. Hack Job (Video 2011)
First of all I´d like to thank James Balsamo for sending me a screener of his film.
James Argento (James Balsamo) and Mike Fulci (Michael Shershenovich) are tired of art films taking away the credit that horror films deserve. So, they get a script from the devil to make the best horror film ever. The script has three stories in it. The first is about Nazis that awaken a mummy's curse. The second tale is about an alien that crashes a battle of the bands and then starts eating the contestants, and the last story is about a man who gets possessed to kill televangelists. Hack Job is written, edited and directed by James Balsamo. It´s made on practically no budget at all, the camera work and editing is bad and the acting is way over the top. Regarding the pacing, even it it´s just 95 minutes long it feel overlong and seems to drag on forever. Yes there is gore but the special fx are really bad most of the time, several times they cut away not because it´s too gross or so but because they probably couldn´t afford create the fx. There is nudity, but it´s mostly a ugly pair of pierced breasts.
This review is based on a DVD, it´s unrated.
Rating: 0 out of 7. Hack Job is dumb and dumber, it´s actually a contender in the contest of the most stupid film I´ve seen. It´s so bad it almost becomes funny but only almost...
