Hey everyone… Jonathan Moody back again for another blog review. This time I found a film that John Ward and Paul Presenza owned that way we could review it by Zoom. The movie I chose as you can obviously tell was the 2010 flick, “Dahmer VS Gacy”… one of the first and maybe only time you will see two dead serial killers who never actually met in real life duke it out to see who is the supreme Serial killer…. Wait what? Check out the latest Indie Film Cafe episode to hear our reactions!
Here’s the IMDB Synopsis so you can better understand:
A secret government has been trying to create the ultimate killer using the DNA of infamous killers Jeffrey Dahmer and John Wayne Gacy, but there’s one big problem: they’ve escaped! Bloody mayhem stretches across the United States as they go on the ultimate killing spree. Trying to stop the maniacal madness is Ringo, a hick warrior, using only a shotgun and a bottle of whiskey. It all leads up to the ultimate showdown!
Dahmer VS Gacy to me was kinda fun. I know I’m gonna get a lot of crap for that and some people didn’t dig it as much including Paul and John. But I really had a fun time. There were things obviously that I thought could have been better. I thought the actors were pretty well cast including… Randal Malone as John Wayne Gacy would have been so cool but he wasn’t in it enough. He had some pretty good moments but overall it was a very lackluster performance. Ford Austin as both Jeffrey Dahmer and the guy who was sent to find him and bring him back was great casting but overall it didn’t amount to much. Like at the end of the movie it just felt like okay its over. He also Directed.
At least we got a real VS kind of film… it happens toward the end but most of these low budget VS movies barely have actual scenes where the two characters are fighting each other. Remember when we reviewed Bigfoot VS Krampus on Quick Review Thursday. Bigfoot and Krampus didn’t even fight each other. They barely even saw each other. But in this we do get a showdown. It isn’t at all as epic as I was hoping. But its really done for comedic effect.
Speaking of comedy… if you were expecting this to be a serious movie at all you have another thing coming to you cause it ain’t. It’s silly and stupid and fun. If you are taking this seriously you need help. Professionally. But that’s just my personal opinion. I’d still seek it because this movie is so stupid it actually made me enjoy it. I love movies like this. Sadly both of my hosts on the show didn’t feel the same way. They were very disappointed by it and were shocked that I actually dug it.
Funny thing is the Dahmer Netflix series just came out this month and we released it around the same time. That was actually not planned but hey that’s a great coincidence. So if you enjoyed watching the Dahmer series which actually also had John Wayne Gacy in it (Spoiler… sorry) then go check it out and then watch Dahmer VS Gacy after. That sounds like a fun double feature to me.
So I guess the scores are in… and as I said, Paul and John were not overly thrilled by this flick. John found it kind of meh while Paul thought it was pretty stinky. I on the other hand gave it a pretty low score. I gave it a 2, Paul gave it an 8, and John have it a 5 giving it a Stink Score of 15, and a Stinky Average of 5.0. Which pretty much puts in the Meh pile. Here are some other Meh movies that also got a 15 on the Ladder of Stink… Santa’s Slay, It Waits, and Don’s Plum! Those were truly Meh movies.
Well I hope you guys enjoyed that last podcast. Paul is up next and in a sec he will be telling you all how to get your grubby little hooves on this flick! Take it away Paul!
