American Maniacs (originally titled Fetch) is described by the producers as a Kansas-set horror flick involvin sadistic ex-cons, corrupt cops, meth-addicted strippers and psychotic killers who keep flesh-eatin dogs. Please don't bother with the synopsis you may find on sites like IMDb because they're all misleadin marketin speak that makes the movie out to be a thriller of a horror. It has no such urgency! Anyway, when I read that it's written by Trent Haaga (Deadgirl) and stars Ashlynn Yennie (the most disadvantageous midsection of The Human Centipede) as a meth-head stripper teasingly named Starlene Arbuckle, I was kinda hopin it'll at least serve up some trashy R-rated fun.
At a glance:
|Ashlynn Yennie: From human centipede to meth-head stripper.|
|Curtis Smith as retard Archie Crider,|
the worst performance in the movie.
Bad news on the doorstep:
|Shawn G. Smith as Punch. |
Should've developed this villain.
Perennial wonderment:Can't understand why Trent Haaga movies like Deadgirl (2008), Jessicka Rabid (2010), Someone's Knocking At The Door (2009) and Chop (2011) never feature a sympathetic character we can at least identify with, if not root for. To forgo one, you'd really have to make up for it with somethin wildly original.
I can't remember if I cried:
|"Suck or I'll shoot!"|
Watch out for:John Redmond plays Sheriff Marcus Lewis, a dirty old man who likes to get sucked off by whores while his wheelchair-bound wife watches and gives pointers. For better or worse, this character also provides the sickest and only memorable moment of the film. It's a bizarre, life-endin act of sexual perversion that I can't wait to be repeated in a more competent movie.
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?
|Fetch was changed to the much more marketable American Maniac.|
|Slim siren Ashlynn Yennie rocking the barely legal, titless look.|
|So much effort.|
