A group of roleplaying, D&D nerds, decide to get wild and crazy one night, instead of going on a dice fueled, magical quest. On their way to buy booze and weed, the happen to run into Jack Scabtree, a man who had just been kicked out of the army for being a psycho killer. His plans to kill them, may put a damper on their party.
Colonel Kill Motherfuckers, and the company that made it, Hack Movies, came recommended to me from a friend and I'm glad they were. Since I admit, I probably would have never given their movies another glance, considering now with how cheap DV cameras are, home video horror movies have become a dime a dozen. While Hack Movies may fall into that catagory, the company and their movies are certainly making themselves stand out in the the crowd.
From the start its obvious this movie isn't going to take itself or anything serious, so you don't have to deal with another group of aspiring filmmakers, trying to become the next Sam Raimi and Evil Dead. Not only are they not taking anything serious, they aren't concerned about who the may offend. Filling the movie with crude humor, and making fun of anime fans, Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans, RPG afficionados and everyone in between. So if you have a fragile ego, you may want to keep on walking, since no one is walking away from their movies without being insulted in one way or another. Which I'm glad, the no-holds barred attitude they have when it comes to the comedy aspect, really works in their favor. Sure its crude and immature at times, but still you can't help but laugh when you have a character explaining the fundamental aspects of having your salad tossed.
I'm not even going to take the time talk about the story, you read the plot summary on this site, on the Hack Movies web site, or on the back of the DVD case. That is what you get, introduction to characters, kids kill a crazy army dude, army dude comes back and kills kids. That's it, no more, no less. "What about the acting, is it any good?" If you actually are asking that question, then you need to go sit in the corner, and wallow in shame. How ever, if you are curious about gore or effects, that is a little more reasonable. The effects in the movie are cheap. Cheap to the point you can see where the prosthetics/make-up ends, and the skin begins. So yeah their effects may be cheap to the point that you might consider it crappy. Once you watch the scene, of one of the kids getting his faced ripped off and stuffed in his mouth, you'll be laughing to the point that it won't matter how bad it may look. Which is just another aspect that makes the movie work, the constant humor through out the movie, and the fact that people making it are willing to laugh at themselves to entertain the viewers. I mean how many movies are you going to watch where you hear a character say, "You can't go around killing people, with that stupid fucking lollipop!"
Yeah, okay. Sure this isn't by typical standards a "good movie." Yes, I would be willing to agree that the movie is ridiculous....and cheesy; silly, kinda stupid, crude, offensive, uncalled for, unnecessary. But, you know what? I loved it, I found it hilarious and it was damn entertaining. It is a movie that is hard to recommend to just anyone though, rather it's a movie that you'll have to decide for yourself. Whether or not you should watch it, and not so much as what other may say about it, good or bad.
