Weird Movie
17 June 2009 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In the 70's, while acting in a porn movie, Jennifer (Cheryl Dent) has a vision of her dead sister Jessica and attacks her dwarfish partner Nasty Nat (Pancho Moler). She is sent to a mental institute and six months later, her doctor discharges her under the condition that Jennifer should stay with her parents using medicine for a period. While driving through the desert, Jennifer is thrown in a ditch by the truck of two guys that want to rape her. However she is helped by the dysfunctional hippies Damon Grey (Vin Crease), Violence Onelove (Michele Morrow) and Guilty Karma. They invite Jennifer to spend the night in their camp and they offer peyote to her. Under the effect of the drug, the delusional Jennifer and her new friends are haunted by a mysterious fiend.

"Slaughterhouse of the Rising Sun" is a weird movie, with bizarre characters and situations that are not well-developed. The dysfunctional group of hippies, for example, are totally insane and silly, and their violent attitudes are unusual and against the philosophy of "love and piece" from the 70's. Jennifer's insanity is never explained, and the viewer has no explanation why she has this killer instinct and why she killed her younger sister. The genre shifts between a comedy that is neither dark nor funny and horror that is silly and never scary. Therefore the film fails. The best offered by this flick is the version of The Animals' "House of the Rising Sun" in the end. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Delírio Assassino" ("Assassin Daydream")
