Attack of the Adult Babies

Fearter rating: 7/10

I defy anyone to guess the plot to this film. Whatever you're thinking now, you're way off!

 

Review (no spoilers)

From the title you'd think that this could either be the weirdest monster film ever, or some seedy fetish-filled excuse for a film. But thankfully it's neither - it's much weirder.

At this point in a review I'd usually do a brief synopsis of the plot. but to be honest, I don't think I could if I tried. It begins with a family who get accosted at home, then everyone but the dad has to go to a Manor House to retrieve something in order to save the dad's life. However when they get there, they stumble into a weird rich man's club and the plot spirals into absurdity from there. It may be disgusting and weird and odd and (insert your own word for bizarre) but it isn't sexual - despite what the trailers make out - it's a comedy horror.

 

It's the strangest plot I've ever watched - I'm not entirely sure it makes complete sense, but it is entertaining (or at least attention keeping). I'm sure it must be an allegory for something, possibly around the unfair distribution of wealth, but it gets lost in the mind knotting lunacy. 

It's an indie film, and it has the look and feel of one too, but it's a good quality indie film. There are some good gory scenes too and you can tell they've been made by people who love horror and gore special effects. 

 

Towards the end of the film there is a scene/sequence where I wasn't sure if I'd inadvertently taken some LSD in the lamb kofta I was eating. It comes somewhat out of the blue (the scene not the kofta - although koftas on a Monday is unusual) and is really quite trippy. For me, it detracted from the film - although it may have been the only way to explain the reasoning behind the unbelievably odd plot. 

 

All in all it is worth watching because you will never see a film quite like it. When I think about it, I still feel confused, lost and shake my head in disbelief.
