Plot – Spoilers:
Adam Chaplin is a gore-fest with revenge as an excuse for it. Set in the dystopian Heaven Valley, Adam Chaplin’s wife owes a disfigured crime boss Denny some dough and having not paid up on time, she is set on fire. Adam has no choice therefore to summon up some kind of a demon that is forever perched like a figurative monkey on his back and which gives him certain powers. His fists are pure power and there are some enjoyable scenes of hyper-speed battering of people’s faces as Adam goes searching for Denny. To add some drama, Denny sets loose a former military guy on Adam to finish him off before he can get to Denny. The gore is also given a breather with some back-stories detailing Adam and his wife’s relationship and how Denny came to be disfigured.

Many of the violent scenes which include one of Denny’s son’s being impaled appear to have been influenced by anime/manga action sequences. There’s lots of gore, in fact, bucket loads of it at times and Adam Chaplin was described by some at the time of its release as one of the goriest movies ever.

Absolutely brilliant film. FINALLY a shot-on-video movie that doesn’t suck. Could be the bloodiest movie I’ve ever seen as well. This film is for gore freaks and those who appreciate the darkness in life. It won’t be for everybody but I absolutely loved it. The director who pulled this off is to be commended.

As always, thanks to the folks at EUM’s for posting this. I had never even heard of it until seeing it here. Many thanks…we all appreciate what you do.

I enjoyed the effects and had a good laugh at times. Sadly the gore is just there for the gore. As the characters are just some objects it doesn’t had an effect on me. Just some stupid objects gettin’ ripped apart.

@suckmydickbitch: Mike Ehrmantraut is identifiably Mikel’s incognito non de plume. I observed his commentary upon other films, seldom does he opine or review, in lieu this commoner astuciously utilizes the synonymous derogatory aspersions with piscary simulation.
Basically, it’s the same individual trolling comments to infiltrate his homosexuality abhorrence…

Bonkers… Like really mad.
Not a bad watch
. Very cartoony and wildly OTT.
Bit of escapism for a early still cold Spring night.

Its like a mix of sci-fi, horror comedy with buckets of blood. Interesting revenge type film unlike any I have seen before. Pure escapism. When I watched this I was reminded of films like ”Evil Dead”, ” Braindead” and others with OTT gore. Well done imo.

definitely a gem of post-apocalyptic gore cinema. 100% recommended for misanthropic metalheads!

“Show this bitch that God doesn’t exist”

That’s my favorite line in the film.

Surely an experience, by far the bloodiest film I ever saw. I would call this film a really dark comedy , not for everyone of course but for the gore lovers this film has a lot of it!
