his movie has been out of print for some time, but thankfully, my friend happened to stumble upon it at a horror convention a few months ago. And it's a damn good thing, because this movie is awesome. Awesome. Awesome in a bad way, but extremely watchable.
Where to begin? Well, since there really isn't much of a plot to speak of(actually none whatsoever), I figure I'd fill you in on the good parts. This is probably the only movie where you see a bunch of homeless dudes play monkey in the middle with a severed penis. You read that right. It may sound funny, but it's even better on the TV screen. For you necrophiliacs out there, R.L Ryan(the big guy in a bunch of Troma films, including "The Toxic Avenger") has a touching scene with a corpse, who had already been raped by about 45 bums in order. Some liquor store owner finds some drink called "Tenefly Viper" which has a powerful side effect: causing everyone who drinks it to melt into a puddle of ooze. The gore effects are actually done pretty well in these scenes.
There's this one character who's Vietnam vet(the guy who played him was one in real life), who has some extremely disturbing flashback scenes, guarunteed to send whoever is watching this with you into the other room.
For a movie this revolting and gory, it is made surprisingly well. The camerawork is incredible, the gore is done well, and the acting isn't as god-awful as one might come to expect. You may actually think the actors in these roles are homeless people, and it has some decent writing. I did enjoy this movie, but I can't really qualify it as a good movie. This is highly recommended to anyone who can find it, if you have a strong stomach.
P.S. There are countless other scenes worthy of praise, but I'd like as many people to see this as possible. They should show this in schools.
