Reviews

Acclaimed shlock-horror director Frank Henenlotter (the Basket Case trilogy, Frankenhooker, Brain Damage) makes a deliciously perverse and hugely welcome return to outrageously repulsive form with his first film in 16 years, BAD BIOLOGY, a bizarre and twisted story of a genitally-endowed young woman's search for sexual fulfilment. Jennifer (Charlee Danielson) is an insatiable nymphomaniac whose multi-pronged sexual organ has given her a constant craving for sexual stimulation. Just across town lies the solution to her frustration in the form of a young man called Batz (Anthony Sneed), whose own sexual shortcomings have led him to inject growth steroids directly into his penis. BAD BIOLOGY is a jaw-dropping horror-comedy guaranteed to shock even the most hardened horror fans who think they've seen it all. Bizarre, outrageous, offensive and riotously funny, it is almost certainly destined for cult classic status amongst fans of off-the-wall horror flicks.

When a movie begins with the not so subtle opening credit of ''An R.A. The Rugged Man Thorburn production' you get the impression that you're not entering into the next great cinematic masterpiece. However, when that is followed by 'A Film by Frank Henenlotter' your hopes are raised considerably higher. However, from my recent viewing of Mr Henenlotter's latest endeavor, maybe I shouldn't have raised my hopes that high at all...

Henelotter has been away from directing movies for a very long time and for me at least, he's been sorely missed. His unique brand of bizarre ideas combined with an actual 'idea' behind them proved a very successful antidote to all those 80s slashers that he was so obviously trying to distance himself away from. Beginning with the great 'Basket Case 1 & 2' to my favourite anti-drugs movie 'Bran Damage' and finally with the near classic 'Frankenhooker', old Uncle Frank has entertained me time and time again with his off the wall humor and strange creature features. So, to see him 'come home' has been an exciting proposition to say the least...

Which brings us to 'Bad Biology'. The story has Jennifer, a young woman with a strange abnormal mutation (which we couldn't possibly discuss on a family website) which gives her a heightened lust for sexual gratification. Across town, a young man named Bax, who has his own sexual issues (again, which I won't spoil here) injects steroids into his . . . err . . . gentleman jim to satisfy his own particular frustrations. The first half of the movie splices scenes of these two sexual adventurers in their many encounters with hapless horny folk up until their long awaited meeting when . . . well, let's say sparks do indeed fly between the two.

This eventual meeting is possibly the problem with the movie.

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.

The cover describes as 'Hilarious', but the only funny thing I found was that statement. This DVD holds my record for being the fastest to be given to a charity shop!

I just saw this movie on the mighty Horror Channel just yesterday! It was just a mad bizarre ride of sick humor, with some excellent acting! I was surprised at how good the acting is from some of the cast. I really hope they do more stuff. The sex scenes where so real, I think they we're actually doing it ! LoL Appeals to my sense of humor anyway, I can see why it might not be for everyone. Think Family Guy mixed in with some Frankie Boyle and some ace hiphop

Saw this the other night on the horror channel , starts off with a unique never before done concept on the subject of sexual addiction but then tappers off in to a over the top attempt at crude humour that's gets tiresome and makes little sense during the last 40 mins or so of the movie, plus the acting is horrendous. definitely wouldn't buy it on dvd .

The horror films of director Frank Henenlotter are always narratively outrageous and visually over-the-top, so when moviegoers familiar with his approach to horror stories and his cinematic style see the name HENENLOTTER on a project, they expect to get an eyeful and an earful. But with his earlier films like BASKET CASE (1982), BRAIN DAMAGE (1988), and FRANKENHOOKER (1990), the writer/director delivers more than bizarre story lines and over-the-top gore and FX. While outrageously fun in a grindhouse kind of way, each of these films also has a subtext that offers a culturally relevant, highly satirical commentary on Western society and human foibles. However, after watching BAD BIOLOGY--the director's long-awaited return to the movie biz--fans of Henenlotter's other films will be left scratching their heads and wondering WTF?

Like Henenlotter's FRANKENHOOKER, the writer-director's BAD BIOLOGY tackles the themes of human sexuality and Western sexual mores. The problem, though, is that the once witty and iconoclastic filmmaker doesn't seem to have anything left to say about such topics. His story revolves around a girl who was born with a vaginal mutation that makes it impossible for her to be satisfied by any normal man or woman, and in her quest to rectify her problem, she stumbles across a boy who, because of his own genital deformity, just might be able to satiate her every need and desire. Unfortunately for her, the boy hasn't emotionally adjusted to his biological defect as well as she has to her own, and because of his reluctance to let nature take its course, his (ahem!) manhood has decided to take matters into its own "hands.
