2.0 out of 5 stars PUT THAT THING AWAY!, 28 April 2013
This review is from: Freaky Deaky [DVD] [2012] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I love a good grindhouse. Heck I even love a mediocre grindhouse. This one didn't make it, and it wasn't just because Christian Slater was in it. The film starts in 1975 then plays newsreel headlines from 1968-1975 just to let us know the writers didn't care about details. We are then fed a story that is highly improbable. All this is find and well for a grindhouse.

What this story lacked was the grindhouse soundtrack and over the top dialouge. Instead they feed us a tale of Woody (Crispin Glover) a rich stoner accused of rape by a woman (Sabina Gadecki) that wasn't sure he actually raped her. The investigator (Billy Burke) gets kicked off the force, but that didn't seem to be a plot point, just an attempt at humor. Meanwhile seductive Robin (Breanne Racano) is after the money and utilizes bomb expect Skip (Christian Slater) to assist her.

The film has a lot of drug use, but lacks decent drug humor. The humor wasn't crude or low brow, it just wasn't well written and executed, lacking zing and delivery. While people get killed in this wannabe grindhouse, there is no blood or fight scenes associated with such features. The movie is out right lame compared to how it is being promoted.

If you like a modern unrealistic view of the 70's in Detroit with substandard writing and performance, you might want to rent this film.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, lame sex scenes, no nudity.
