Ultra-Gory ADAM CHAPLIN: VIOLENT AVENGER (2011) from Autonomy Pictures 6/18

Already being touted as one of the bloodiest films ever made, Emanuele De Santi's ADAM CHAPLIN: VIOLENT AVENGER (2011) gains its domestic debut courtesy of Autonomy Pictures. After his wife is torched by a local gangster, Adam Chaplin strikes a deal with a demon (who lives in an inverted cross-shaped wound on his back) for the powers of revenge -- powers that apparently consist solely of the ability to pummel people into hamburger in a hyperviolent freakout frenzy. Seriously, the trailer for this thing looks batshit nuts, and by all accounts the movie proper actually lives up to the splatterrific hype. If you're a fan of the works of Olaf Ittenbach, Brian Paulin, or any of that Sushi Typhoon stuff, I imagine this will be one to add to the collection. I might as well send out my movie night invites now.

I'm afraid it's not great, yes there is load of blood and gore, but the film on a whole is pretty boring.

Yeah other then the gore it looks pretty terrible, and even a lot of the gore doesn't look that good, like low budget CGI. Probably still might be worth a watch though.

It kind of reminded me of Story of Ricky.

Looks like a Demonic Riki-Oh!

I've heard STORY OF RICKY used as a reference point. I've also heard it likened to a live action FIST OF THE NORTH STAR -- except good, not like that '90s abomination with Gary Daniels and Chris Penn. I'm pretty stoked.

It looks interesting enough. Similar to The Story of Ricky (fighting, gore, and cheesiness), it should be a fun mindless ride.
