Hilarious and thankfully short...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mindflesh [DVD]  (DVD)
What a load of pseudo tosh! I had great hope after reading the other reviews...and the cover looked great..but this film is pathetically awful. It aspires to be part high brow pseudo intellectual, part schlock horror and part sexual provocateur..and fails miserably in all areas. At 75 minutes I did wonder if the film makers had cut the film randomly as it jumps around more than a frog on a pogo stick. Random plot lines seem to be thrown in willy nilly. The promised "scenes of a disturbing and sexual nature" are risible and as for the equally delusional claim of "think Hellraiser meets Species" should have an additional "..and then think again as this film is nothing like either". Some of the reviews mention the style of film production..well, to me it's up there with some under graduate film making the morning after a Merrydown or two too many the night before. And the acting goes from full on ham to wanna-be method acting. The script is dreadful.
There are far better low budget horrors out there. If you want surreal images then buy/watch un chien andalou by Luis Buñel. If you want sclock horror..well, take your pick. Ditto for films with provocative sexual content.
And if you want to laugh at surreal scenes with weird background music then buy Chris Morris' Jam DVD which is far funnier and actually intentionally funny.
This is short at 75 minutes...but still 72 minutes too long! Buddhist Horror? A steaming pile more like!
