The Taint

The trailer made me want to see this...

The Taint

I just can't figure if it will be awesome or Troma-tastic (not a fan of Troma).

Has anyone seen it?

Drew Bolduc (director/star of The Taint) actually sent me a screener to review for my site. This movie is fucking bananas. I suck at reviewing, but here's my review if anyone wants to see it:

Even if you hate it, you'll think about it for weeks and tell everyone you know about it.

Sounds right up my alley, er, so to speak...

I went ahead and ordered the DVD

Looks a bit too Troma-esque for my tastes, but still tempted to check it out.

This is what I thought of when I read the title:

I think that's exactly the pun they were going for.

Surfing the website, I've decided that at the very least, it's got some awesome music in it.

They put up some of the songs from the soundtrack on SoundCloud if you wanted to download them:

I finally had the chance to watch this tonight. I'm a bit mixed.

On the plus side, the filmmakers didn't pull any punches, and were quite inventive with their use of gore and effects. The effects looked fairly good. The camera work was on the good side, but not great (but some inventive shots). The acting was forgivably poor. And it didn't overstay its welcome, at only 66 minutes before the credits rolled.

On the negative side, the story, characters, costumes, locations, and style were all very haphazard, and really didn't contribute towards a coherent narrative (visual or otherwise). Some jokes were included at the expense of the narrative - they didn't really fit, and certainly didn't help maintain a suspension of disbelief, but were crammed in anyways.

It was bit better than most Troma films, but nowhere near as good as say, Bad Taste. The movie it reminded me of the most was Shatter Dead, but maybe not as good.

I might watch it again to hear the commentary, but I doubt I'll come back to it again after that.
