"she left this world with more holes then she entered it with!"

Teraz Films brings us "Extreme Erotic Horror" with Fantom Kiler 1..read on to see how the disc and movie are!!

Video on this release ranges from OK to good. In some scenes things flash with a blue tint on and off which is pretty annoying. Also it also changes from widescreen to fullscreen from time to time, with the subtitles being cut off at certain points. ANNND finally, with the white subtitles, its sometimes hard to read what is being said since they clash with the scene.

Audio is pretty good. The movie is presented in Polish (?) with english subs. Like I said above, the subtitles clash with the scene at some times and a couple times, they make no sense whatsoever. The score for the movie is pretty dope, its pretty Goblin-ish.. and i enjoyed it quite a bit.

Extras we get 3 trailers-- Fantom Kiler 1, 2 and 3. The one for 3 is extended and runs about 4 minutes and is pretty neat. There is also the fastest slide show i have ever seen. It runs pretty short, but fits alot of pictures in because they fly across your screen. Last but not least, there is an insert with advertisements for the other Fantom Kiler Movies and the soundtrack CD.

ehh, so the disc isnt so hot, but is the movie?....

2 cops find a body cut up and stripped naked at the beginning of the movie. Soon enough they piece together that it MUST be the killer from last year that was never found. that killer is the Fantom Kiler!! and he is back to fondle, defile and slaughter naked women in super vile ways. He shoves a knife up one womans pussy, shoves a mop up another's asshole, hammer and chisle to another girls asshole, throat slashings, various slashings and a whole lot more!!!! And yes, we HAVE seen the killer in this movie before... in Blood and Black Lace!!!

In all honesty, even though the description of "horror porn" "extreme erotic horror" and even the one i gave above sounds interesting and tempting to check out, this movie was pretty boring. The gore was VERY bad and was limited to just red splashes on a womans body aside from one good throat slashing. Yes the women are hot, and we get to see them in all their upclose naked glory, the score was cool, the killer was fucking awesome and there was a very hilarious scene, which was mentioned HERE (http://www.horrordvds.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?s=&threadid=9286) by Sinister... buuut, all of that just cannot make up for the lack of gore and the sheer boredom this movie puts you through.

recommended if you are curious, but dont blame me when you dont like it :D

opinions anyone?

Nice review Jeff!

This sounds like the kind of movie that is worth a rental.

I am all for a movie with lots of hot naked chicks, but this does not sound like the kind of thing that works, either as Erotica or as Horror. I doubt that I will ever run across it for rental, and since I just blew my wadd on a new computer, my DVD purchases for awhile will not include anything like this.

I should also say Thanks, because a couple of weeks ago I was considering this as a blind buy, and now I am very thankful that I did not do it. :D

great call Zodiac. I never think of renting movies since i never do. I would recommend this as a rental, but my original verdict still remains as a buy.

The only reason that I rent much is because I work at a video store and I get all of my rentals for free.

If it is something that I have seen that I like, I just buy it.

If I have not seen it and we get it for rental, then I usually watch it first and decide weather or not to buy it.

If we don't get it, I sometimes will buy it blind, especially if I have read good reviews for it, or I like the director or star.

I have to admit Jeff, I love the cover for Fanthom Killer! :D

Nice review ...i must admit i enjoyed `Fantom Killer` despite some boring sequences, the girls are truly stunning and the dialogue brings new heights to the term `ridiculous`. Just a good film to turn off and watch with a few beer buddies... i shall be looking out for the sequel :D

"she left this world with more holes then she entered it with!"

LMAO. :lol: That alone makes me want to check this out, one day when I am close to a video store of this nature. Your reviews of these made me laugh out loud, literally. Still, I am thinking your reviews of these movies might be better than they are.

Well you scared me off. Mind you I spend so much time with old horror. Thanks for the warning.
