Better... But Not By Much,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MORDUM.AUGUST UNDERGROUND..TOE TAG FILMS.FRED VOGEL. (DVD)
Okay, right off the bat, I Hated August Underground. I hate it with a passion. It's pointless, not shocking, badly acted and an even worse storyline (and not bad in a good way). Being a sick film fan, AU so far did nothing for me so I was hoping Mordum was going to be much, much better. And it is better than the first AU, but not by much at all! In AUM we meet Peter again, but this time he lives with his girlfriend Crusty. Before we all go "awwwww" I must point out that Crusty also has her Brother living with them called Maggot... who's also her lover. Maggot is the one saving grace of this movie. He is the only character that acts really well, is horrific to watch and I would recommend the Movie based on his acting and terrifying character. At the beginning of the movie we see Peter catching Maggot and Crusty doing the no pants dance and what does Peter do about it after much threat at them from the other side of the door?! Nothing, that's what. He even gets friskay when Crusty starts throwing stuff at him and cutting herself up. It seems the love triangle has been temporarily forgotten and all is well in the AU House so the 3 Killers go to a drug den where they kill one of the guys living there (and guess what?! We don't see it... We get to see what he had for dinner instead. Yawn). Then, like the first AU, nothing much really happens. They go to gigs, they hang around their town, then there are a few "shocking" (I'd say more tacky) scenes where they rape and torture a Woman and her Husband. The only scene I struggled with is a paticular scene where Crusty is puking on 2 chicks and Maggot rapes the disemboweled stomach of one of the chicks. Oh and the end scene with Maggot, but you'll just have to see that to see what I mean. Again, no real plot except for the love triangle between the 3, no real story improvement, bad acting except for Maggot, slightly more gore but still a pointless endeavour.
