Plot – Spoilers:
In this second part to the August Underground series, Peter (Fred Vogel) is joined by his girlfriend Crusty and her brother Maggot to amp up the depravity.

August Underground’s Mordum apparently started off as a music video for the band Necrophagia (Vocalist Killjoy plays the serial killer whom the trio hang out with towards the end of the film). At that point, it was Maggot (Michael Todd Schneider) in charge of putting together footage. What he had was later edited and more footage shot and added to become what we now know as August Underground Mordum. A different version called the Maggot Cut exists.

The movie kicks off with a similar trope to the first part – the camera following someone climbing up the stairs – and your heart sinks a little because Part 1 got your expectations soaring and you wonder if it’s just more of the same. As it turns out, the cameraman has just walked in on his girlfriend fucking her brother. A squabble ensues between the two and she finally assuages him by cutting her belly. What a wonderful way to get your spirits back up ….

It gets even better and a little ironic when they travel to a junkie friend’s place, butcher the comatose guys there and cough and sputter about how disgusting the junkies are, to live in the filth and puke that they do. And their biggest concern while dismembering the bodies is to not catch AIDS.

Peter and Maggot share an uneasy relationship because of the incest thing with Crusty. For the most part, Maggot is submissive to Peter and appears to be deranged and someone who truly lives in his own world. It is therefore not surprising that Maggot often is at the centre of the worst scenes in the film. Some of the depravity on show here includes:

Forcing a half-dead guy to chop his own dick following which Crusty sucks on it for a while before rubbing it on his girlfriend’s pussy.

Crusty puking on the faces of two girls while Peter jerks off.

Gutting a woman and Maggot later fucking the gash with the innards spilling out.

Maggot eating maggots from the rotting corpse of a decapitated child.

Maggot violating the corpse of a young girl while Crusty strokes the girl’s cheeks and utters the chilling words, “You’re not gonna have to worry about growing up now sweetie.”

are you sure this is not a genuine snuff film? Way too realistic. So what is wrong with the people who made this thing?

Agreed! I almost thought it was a actual “found footage” movie when i started watching the first part. It looks extremely realistic. Im not sure why someone would make movies like this, but to be fair i kinda like it even though its sickening.

Okay I just finished this hour and fifteen minute shitshow (excuse my French) and I have honestly never watched something so objectively bad. I, personally, do not partake in such activities as “anally raping the corpse of a young girl”, or “[f]orcing a half-dead guy to chop his own dick”, and even “puking on the faces of two girls while Peter [an accomplice] jerks off”. Honestly, there are almost 0 redeeming qualities of this movie however my colleague and I (who have extensive backgrounds in film history and analysis) were able to agree on one such quality which was the… Read more »

These filmmakers are rebels in the sense that they had the “courage?” to create such a piece and basically state: “Humans possess the faculties to delve into evil and still come out sane and moral.” In the first August Underground, the director is shown to be enough of a likable person to obtain the confidence of a granny in participating in a questionable activity with him. Film is a powerful medium, and has the capacity to administer big change and communicate serious ideas/messages. This movie flirts very dangerously (and explicitly!) with the boundaries (eg legality) and shows very nicely the… Read more »

Now this one is my most favorite out of the 3. I love the brother in this one and he was just wild and crazy and wicked . I love the whole movie but I definitely like to watch it more just to see maggot. He is hot !!!!!

honestly not a bad movie i guess, but I really don’t like movies that are shocking just to be shocking (and this is definitely one of those). personally I think part of the horror is simply seeing a build up and psychological reason that justifies the behavior in the characters head.
if you want a gorey horrifying movie I would recommend “Aftermath”. it’s not nearly as time consuming, way more thought provoking, and just a better movie in every way

aftermath sucks ass, so unrealistic.. at least this was somewhat better. Id say for you to try Snuff 102, it’s got similar attributes to this one, but more gore and torture women which seems real at certain aspects.

Underground horror movie depicts a child being raped in pretty much full-blown detail. Nobody cares.

Netflix release a movie about girls who like to dance and everyone calls them pedos. The internet is RETARDED.

these are weird fucking movies. they’re so frustrating? i find them really boring because there’s just this knowledge going into the august underground movies that they’re made to be like, super fucked up on purpose. and that’s achieved! i’m appropriately disgusted by the scene where crusty’s sucking on the disembodied dick. like that’s gnarly! i’m gonna sit through these because i’m genuinely just curious about them but after a certain point, it feels like ‘fucked up on purpose’ can only get movies so far. there’s an audience for these kinds of things and fred vogel’s obviously found his! i love… Read more »

I think the idea of having these movies filmed on a cam made it have that “disturbing” feel, but also a little hard to follow. Some parts were predictable, dragged on and a little over the top. The scene with the girls and crusty vomiting on them I found boring and skipped through. Maggot was definitely the fav of the film, crusty and her boyfriend were super annoying. All in all wouldn’t watch again, would maybe recommend to people who can stomach this genre, will broadcast on Christmas morning while family opens presents. Xoxo ?

This movie is sometimes a guilty pleasure if only because the graphic gore and shock value is much higher than the first film, but it is also objectively worse in every other aspect. Maggot and Crusty were the most annoying and unnecessary characters in the whole movie. I find it very difficult to believe that Peter would be the type of character to even want a girlfriend, especially given the first movie and his “dude-bro” frat boy persona. I found Maggot to be the dumbest character in the whole thing because his main purpose is to rape anything that has… Read more »

Also, editing that last comment I made: when Crusty is puking on the two women and sexually assaulting them, they aren’t even tied up or restrained in any way. What the hell is stopping them from attacking back and escaping??

Nothing unexpected everything is disgusting like the director intended didn’t quite understand the point of this movie.. everything is way too personal and up close most of the torture scenes are confusing. I didn’t really understand what’s most of torture, rape, necrophilia they we’re all mishmashed like almost stitched together completely desensitized me because of the confusion. No plot… these people had fun making this movie, that’s kinda disturbing

error: bad mouse!
