The title of this review alludes to the fact that every Gore-Festooned movie Frank seems to make begins with a "B" - "Basket Case", "Brain Damage"... Okay, so "Frankenhooker" is the exception, but nobody's perfect. Far be it from me to belittle the return of the venerable Mr. Henenlotter - He's been mostly MIA since the early '90s, and horror film has become far poorer thanks to his absence. But! weep nay more ye mirtles green, he's back and striking a Body-Horror pose in your face once more. Perhaps his new renaissance can be put down to a new partnership with rapper R.A. The Rugged Man (R.A. Thorburn to his parents), but who cares. We have to relish this return.
The plotline of the film is perhaps a little too risque for the purposes of this review, but suffice to say, as the sub-title "A God Awful Love Story" attests two mis-matched individuals find themselves at the receiving end of something a little more, erm, "advanced" than the usual frottage. Led by a "thumping" (yowsa!) score by Prince Paul and a look that refuses to betray the low-budget origins such a movie usually has, you can do far worse than to help Henenlotter fund his pension. To Hell with the epidemic of anaemic "Slasher" re-makes out there which threaten to turn the Horror Genre into a sick parody of itself. Watch this instead and boost the resistance.
