Nutbag is the horrifying, true-life story of a man who murders without provocation. The lonely, depraved killer stalks the neon city we call Las Vegas. Killing young women at random, there seems to be no end to his madness. Nutbag is a claustrophobic, ghastly thrill-ride that pulls no punches in its depiction of violence. Set to a haunting musical score, this shockingly gory film spins a frighteningly contemporary story of a modern day Jack the Ripper. Written by Fright Flix Productions

the Slasher Film is....... BACK!!!!
7 February 2005 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Nick Palumbo's debut film NUTBAG provides a peek inside the world of an of a serial killer. The film basically just follows the "killer" around while documenting both his crimes and his thought process.

The "killer" whom is played by Mack Hail (whom is also the director of SWITCH KILLER) is an excellent character. Mack Hail totally brings this guy to life and deserves MUCH credit for his performance. He really keeps your attention at ALL times and hopefully we'll see him resume the role in the rumored NUTBAG 2.

NUTBAG is a loving tribute to films such as MANIAC (without coming off like some fan-boy tribute film) and I think it's an excellent debut for Mr. Palumbo. Their are some areas that are lacking (mainly some of the obvious filler) but ANYTIME Mack Hail is on screen it's great stuff. The dialogue is fantastic, the locations are great..... The actress's are beautiful.... The story is very cool and the directing is top notch... Miles ahead of most no budget underground films.

Anyway...... As mentioned, it's a very solid debut film for Nick Palumbo! He's a director who's looking to get horror BACK to what it once was and I think NUTBAG is an excellent 1st step towards accomplishing that goal. He did a LOT of things right in this film and casting was probably his BEST move as Mack Hail REALLY gets the job done as the KILLER! The character is a total psycho but ya still can't help but root for him!
