Barricade (2007) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
“Barricade’ is a vile, disgusting movie from Germany that plays more like a third reich training manual than anything else. A kind of teutonic “Wrong Turn” with a pack of cannibals and freaks loose in the Black Forest, hacking and butchering everyone in their sights. Quite frankly I lost track of a story because every few minutes someone was getting disemboweled but to the movies credit, it was meant to be gross and it never strays from that premise. It’s gross and I feel proud I made it through the entire sickening thing without heaving. The body count is pretty high even for one of these movies and I kind of felt bad for the guy who was taking a leak in the bushes and lost his favorite body part to a machete.
The movie does have one kill scene I have never seen before. The camera p.o.v. was from inside one victims stomach as a pair of bloody hands were dipping in removing organs.
The movie argueably may not be the bloodiest, goriest movie ever, but it is surely one of the more disgusting ones. One of the cannibals dresses like he stepped out of the “Hostel” movies but “Hostel” is a Sunday school sermon compared to “Barricade.”
One last note: when things go from bad to worse and even worser(?-that’s not even a word-shame on me) the “hero” who is about 6’5” hides behind his 5 foot tall girlfriend.
You have been warned…avoid “Barricade”—even the title makes no sense.
