This movie is the epitome of a movie that has a good end scene but otherwise completely sucks. During the climax of this film you get to see a guy turned inside out by having his head pulled out of his asshole. This might be a cinematic first and for that bit alone this film is noteworthy. There's also a big slimy orgy, a hand shoved up another guys asshole(see a theme developing here?) that comes out of his throat and a guy who has a face coming out his(you guessed it already) asshole. So you get lots of asshole action. Unfortunately the rest of the movie is filled with assholes you couldn't care less about. It seems like they just spent every dime on FX, which look amazing for the times, and figured the plot didn't really need to be coherent or anything. Also since this was made in the horrific 80's everything has to be jokey which makes you care even less. I'm sure this will appeal to people who worship the 80's and collect Care Bears or whatever but anyone who actually likes real subversive cinema with a point beyond the most simplistic should probably stay far away or just watch the last 20 minutes or so for a cheap thrill. Luckily I saw a free showing of this or it would have been a real waste.
