If you like watching people walk to their cars you will enjoy this one
9 December 2005 | by somethingtotallyoriginalSee all my reviews

This is certainly NOT an Oscar contender. I knew this would be pretty bad from the title on the cheap DVD, "Payback L.O.U. Death!" (What the hell is L.O.U. Death!???), but I never dreamed of this. It seems like half of the movie is composed of people walking; to and from their cars, in and out of places, and another endless parade of pointless, pathetic gestures. All brilliantly directed with no music, action, or purpose. Wasting time doesn't count. But as far as what this full length feature achieves, wasting time is the only thing I can think of.

Don't even let me comment on the acting. Its just embarrassing! If you want to watch a few 'actors' shamelessly embarrass themselves for an hour and a half, you get it here. But if you thought you could get away with retracing humour from them, you are in for an unpleasant surprise... it will be the saddest thing you have EVER SEEN! And trust me, its not something you want to watch or sit through.

The kind of movie where nothing in it is good. And everything in it is not just bad, its bad bad bad. So bad that I can't even find the right word to describe how bad it is. Like I said, embarrassing. And painful. A painful, embarrassing experience.

It doesn't end there, before its over they make sure they put us through only the most awkward, disgusting sex scene you have ever seen. Featuring the worst looking middle aged woman you have ever seen. If you don't have an attraction for your mother, watching this might cause you to puke! It is also interlaced with another gross sex scene of 3 men raping.... you guessed it, another ugly woman! All 3 leading woman in here are butt ugly. Which seems to be the standard for the most amateur of family home videos.

Apparently the person who made this was born into a family who have been in the film business since it started and have extensive credits. Their last addition to their family was undoubtedly a mistake. The man can't write, direct or do anything associated with film-making if his life depended on it. I suggest you find something that you're good at! I wish I can forget this but it leaves such a stink afterwords, I'm going to need therapy to get it out of my mind! I'm warning you, avoid this like the plague. Take it off every shelf and deposit it in the nearest garbage can. Wipe it clean off the face of the earth!!!
