Super Villain is on a quest to change hipster's drinking habits, from cheap beer to a more expensive beer.
Sean Brown returns after his quirky "Kakoon" with something perhaps even more crazy - an ode to classic trash cinema and popcorn commercials, lucha libres, evil plans and gangs fighting for their cause. I was on the fence over "Kakoon", but you could tell Sean Brown enjoys what he does and he's certainly part of the underground that really doesn't give a fuck.
"Boo Demon vs. La Cerveza de Muerte" is the story about Super Villain's quest to turn hipsters into "fussies", by ruining the cheap beer they love so that they have to start drinking more expensive beer. It's an evil plan, indeed, and one that includes robot women and made-up subtitles to the Spanish dialogue.
The movie opens up with old cinema commercials of Coca-Cola and popcorn, and the movie is covered with public domain music, sound and random footage from old sci-fi movies and... whatever else Sean Brown could find that fit his crazy idea of a lucha libre crime movie. The fact that the movie has random Spanish dialogue and wrong subtitles that are completely ridiculous, is probably the main attraction to the movie.
It's funny for a bit, but I think most of the movie is just wandering aimlessly while having stupid subtitles slapped on it. It tries hard to be stupid, and that is its end goal. That's not to say it doesn't have a few funny jokes and intentionally bad misspellings that could spawn a smile from you in a few cases ("nukular" instead of "nuclear"). My reaction to it is that I've seen enough stupid independent/underground movies that it has became quite difficult to entertain me. Unfortunately Sean Brown's new feature doesn't either.
I can't really tell you if this is a good movie or not. It's not your typical movie so odds are that you have to watch it to know. Do I think it's good? Not really, no. Perhaps it could work with if you watch it with a bigger audience, but as home entertainment it bored me. There are some filmmakers I respect a lot without actually caring for most of their work. If Sean Brown continues, then he might be another one. He has his style and doesn't seem to care, he gets into festivals and will probably find an audience. I respect that - but I am not part of that audience. I will say that the introduction by Sean Brown himself that was available was more entertaining than the rest of the movie!
