I've seen this several times, so I obviously enjoy the movie, but even though this is a fun splatter flick, it does have it's flaws (flaws that can be definitely overlooked). They're the typical flaws you'd see in most HGL movies; bad acting, over the top "bad" special effects, and probably the most noticeable is (this movie at least) the poor sound. Everything kind of sounded it was recorded on a little tape recorded, mic pops and everything. Sure, it's obviously a low budget feature, but I've seen zero budget movies with better sound. I think what I, and many other people find appealing in these kind of movies, is the scope of how gory and adventurous Herschell got with these scenes. You know it's fake, I mean, really fake, but it doesn't take away from the scene, and it still somewhat grosses you out, and makes you squirm in delight. These are just incredibly fun movies, and you're always waiting to see what happens next. Is that woman going to be cut in half with a chainsaw? punctured by a metal press? stabbed through the head with a railroad spike? Herschell Gordon Lewis' mind went to some entertaining and brutal extremes to make some of the most innovative and shocking horror films of all time, and we love him for it.
I bought these movies for about $14 a piece, not bad for two blu-rays featuring some of the best splatter movies ever made. I'll post the links to Something Weird, Amazon, and the trailer below. I highly suggest this movie, so if you do buy it and watch it, tell me what you think! I'd love some feedback!
