Sean takes up the case enthusiastically and soon finds himself lusting after Eric’s wife Susan. So when Ray offers Sean a decent pile of cash to get rid of Eric, Sean unhesitatingly agrees and batters Eric’s head clumsily but efficiently. Proud of having unlocked a new achievement, Sean awaits his payment only to find Ray and gang don’t often keep their word and might even want to fuck him up.

Loved the ending. But the wife was innocent.

Moral of the story… don’t do business with people who admit to killing dogs 😉

Joking aside, great film, excellent actors. I give this 5 stars.

This is a solid fucked up movie, it’s perfect for this site! Keeps your interest the entire time with great acting. This had a great plot of a guy that gets fucked over and wants to get revenge. The scene where Sean was walking down the street with that helmet hahah that was cheesy and definetly would bring attention to him. The makeup was fantastic and gorey. Sean’s beaten down character was 10/10. The swelling in the face and a giant hematoma on his eyebrow, excellent makeup. Lots of messed up scenes. I highly recommend this movie, worth the watch.

Stephen Baldwin is a great copy of his brother Alec.

not bad, wasn’t expecting much at the beginning, but the movie does pick up a lot of momentum.

The main theme are existential crises and occult forces. The guy was stuck about his life goal and duck said to him what his subconcious was trying to dissimulate from himself. That made him mentally weak he disired to discover a new way to be himself. He tried to kill people even if he had no reason to do it. He really wanted to feel and to be something. He did every possible mistake but he sureprisely did not die ! biggest logical mistake but anyway he just needed a road but was too lonely and stupid at the beggining. However his imagination was great. I enjoyed this shitty film
