    Bad Biology

    ★★

    On paper, Bad Biology is not all that different from the rest of Frank Henenlotter’s deranged filmography. But in practice it lacks the humour, story and offbeat charm that made the likes of Basket Case, Brain Damage and Frankenhooker a total what-the-fuck joy to behold. Bad Biology has a weak idea, an almost non-existent story and some really crummy effects; the acting is amateur and the music is appalling. Very disappointing.

    Killer Joe is straight up dreadful.

    Wretched, idiot dialogue and supremely crap performances (Hirsch being the worst, with everyone else not far behind), dress up a bog standard noir that is utterly laughable at times.

    The scene with the loan shark and the bikers is mind boggling in its ineptitude and the whole thing vibes shitty nineties straight-to-video thriller. Friedkin directed The Exorcist, for goodness sakes, but Killer Joe is an absolute turd of a film.

    Tedious drivel trying to cop some genre cred by chucking in Udo Kier and some way-too-late-in-the-game gore. Crap dialogue, excruciating performances and a barely comprehensible plot.
    And hey MIFF, where’s this ‘healthy nod to John Carpenter’? In the 30 seconds of synth on the soundtrack?
    Hated it.

    Mediocre first half, irritating second. Can’t work out which was worse, the bad American accents or the acting.
