Bloody Pit of Horror 2003 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This movie starts out like the usual sort of crappy euro-trash movies that were produced in profusion back in the 60s and 70s. Incoherent script, bad actors… American audiences rightly rejected much of the European production because these movies were, well, simply bad. No amount of art house, film student windbaggery can make these movies more than the trash they were. Poor production values reign. Yet in The Crimson Executioner we have a character that transcends normal movie badness and instead creates a sense of awe in the sophisticated bad movie aficionado, a sense that something unique and wonderful has occurred on the screen. Simply put, Mickey Hargitay’s performance as The Crimson Scenery-Chewer must be seen to be believed. All other actors are simply overwhelmed by Hargitay’s stunning exercise in prop consumption, even putting famed scenery chewer, Richard Burton, to shame.
If you can get by the first boring half of this movie the remainder makes a dandy drinking game. Take a drink every time The Crimson Scenery-Chewer refers to himself as the Crimson Executioner (he does this a lot) or mentions his perfect body.
