NOT SURE WHAT HAPPENED ON THE WEEKEND BUT THE SOUNDS OF A LADY SCRAPING HER FINGERS ALONG GRINDED BONES ARE STILL RINGING.
Sounds like if you were to try and pull your head out your arse.
A 1981 video nasty which involves the rebellion of a kid who does not fir into any group at school therefore gets constant grief from other kids being a nerd. There is nothing wrong with being an unfortunate member of the system who lacks in social skills, looks, abilities to be 'cool' and to wear a buttoned-up-to-the-collar-shirt. This film comments on this essential phase of growing up. As a result Stanely Coopersmith, the troubled teenager played by Clint Howard, eventually finds a 'way' to say "FUCK YOU!" to his bullies. Not the spoil the story at all, we journey with him to find Satan in a computer which grants him the power to stand his ground. In return for this power, the devil demands human blood. So Stanely brings death and destruction, mostly with a gleaming medieval sword and an army of wild boars, to his peers and teachers. The different methods of killing I will leave it to you to find out. They are pretty awesome!
There are few visual treats in this truly evil flick: (a) The glowing vector graphics on the computer whenever Satan appears. (b) The flawless artificial chest in the 'heart ripping out' scene. (c) Clint Howard's hair is incredibly versatile in looking timelessly cool (this phenomena can also be seen his later film 'The Wraith' with Charlie Sheen, who possesses incredible hair too)...Without a doubt, there will be more gems you will discover yourself!
Last but not least, Clint Howard's performance sheds a heartfelt tear of sympathy for someone who gets type casted for the Austin Powers movies. Although at points it is quite over-the-top but he demonstrates true talent in portraying the character's inner struggle and demonic tendencies. He reminded me of times when I wish I could have avenged on those dickheads who made a few years of my life pretty shitty. "All nerds united and hail Satan! For we are your children and we evoke thee this night!"
If you like this film, you will also like: The Wrath (1986) and Prince of Darkness (1987).
It's intriguing to think just because we are not "ourselves" anymore (ie DEAD), we are literally treated like an object, like a juicy joint of lamb or a blood dripping medium rare steak. Highlights include:
a) The first cut of the scalpel opening up the skin.
b) The use of bolt cutters to remove the rib cage.
c) The removal of this tissue membrane that wraps around the brain. Kinda reminds me of eating steamed fish with my family at home, my grandma loves severing it's head and sucking every bit of meat out of it.
Not the best of videos but the prince of all darkness aided me in expressing my eternally scorching bone grinding devotion to you.
"We shall reign over the black mass together on our darkest thrones
Bring forth the deepest destructions amongst mankind.
For we are children of the beast
Brother satan i call worth this night
All of your forces vein us to elevate us superior human animals"
