Nasty piece of sick imagination...guaranteed to shock you
on 20 November 2009
Uwe Boll, famed producer of such poor video game to movie transfers as Far Cry and Bloodrayne, actually makes a movie that works quite well.
Seed is a horror/splatter/gore/'torture porn' movie that delivers what it sets out to do... Make you feel uncomfortable and shocked. Like many others of it's genre (Hostel, Saw, Wolf creek) it gives plenty of horrific scenes shown in detail of mindless,cruel sadism. Unlike many others though it does not try to titillate with nudity or model actresses, instead being a little more serious and focusing on the shocking and sick scenes which it hands out freely and quite well.
Seed is a serial killer who delights in the agonising torturous death of his victims. Taunting the police with videos of them he is caught and sentenced to death. State law requires that any man failing to die after three attempts will be set free. On failing for the second time they decide to bury him alive. But he escapes and enacts his revenge on them and anyone else.
The bad points of the movie all can be either overlooked or don't distract to much from the movies. Things you could call plot holes I suppose could happen, while CGI effects and camera work is probably better than other B movies (though not as good as Saw, hostel etc). The acting is actually quite good and makes watching this film easier to watch than other B movies. One large criticism is that a lot of the scenes were dark meaning it wasn't as clear as it perhaps could of been.
The DVD was passed uncut by the BBFC.
Summary: If you don't like this sort of thing you'll hate this movie, but if you're looking for a movie that will shock, scare, and smoother you with horror this movie has it by the bucketful.
Warning!: This film also contains real footage of animal abuse though this was given by PETA who receive a percentage of the profits.
