Florida Bore: My Bloody Nightmare
1 August 2009 | by TromafreakSee all my reviews

Here's the deal, If I were forced to choose to either sit through every Nathan Schiff film available, and Class Reunion Massacre, or to sit through half of this movie, I assure you, I would pick choice number one without hesitation. Welcome to Frankensteins Bloody Nightmare.

Florida Gore and Exploitation has a long rich history, including such epics as 2,000 Maniacs, Blood Freak, and Killing Spree, and for those 3 alone, I am proud to be a Floridian. Then there's this. Unlike most people, I can over-look the video camera like it's nobody's business, and way too little dialog is certainly not the end of the world either, but for the love of God, do something!!... Anything!!

Something about a guy named Victor Karlstein, who is all bent out of shape after his girlfriend dies while under his care. Determined to keep her alive, this shmuck creates a mechanically-enhanced reanimated corpse to murder young women (in an extremely boring manner) for parts for his girlfriends new body. A never-ending, mind-numbingly terrible bore that made me sick, for all the wrong reasons. And finally, there's the audio commentary, I couldn't resist watching it again with the commentary, at least for some kind of explanation, and I'll be damned if the ramblings of one Mr. John R. Hand didn't make it even more boring, and somehow, even more confusing.

As a long-time admirer of B-Horror, who has no use for all the big-budget, super-hero garbage that have clogged the theaters, I try my best to see the good in even the most inept, shot-on-video disasterpiece (Black Devil Doll From Hell). Although, In this case, my best simply will not do. I've never seen anything so completely devoid of entertainment value, or even a single reason to watch past the 3 minute mark, it's just plain insulting. I do respect the fact that this Hand guy digs B-entertainment and all, but perhaps a few years of film school wouldn't hurt, although, something tells me that wouldn't go so well. This is not a proud day for fans of Floridian Gore. It was almost nice to see the sub-genre resurrected. Thank's, but no thank's, I think I'll stick with Tim Ritter and good ol' H.G. from here on out.

Allegedly intended as an homage to vintage coolness such as Burial Ground and Jess Franco stuff. Well, I'm not buying it, all I see is a failure of "A Night To Dismember" proportions, which, come to think of it, is the meanest thing I've ever said about a low-budget Horror film. It's not my intention to hurt the directors feelings (assuming Hand ever reads this), but let's not forget that the fellow who created this sin against film-making is the one who should be sending out written apologies to anyone unfortunate enough to be suckered in by a few misguided IMDb reviews for this pseudo-art. Perhaps I'm a little bitter by this whole thing because I not only expected more, I expected a lot more, I expected misunderstood art (Shatter Dead) and/or some quality modern-day Exploitation (Gutterballs), and what I got was unwatchable, not bad, not even pathetic, Frankensteins Bloody Nightmare is unwatchable!! If you're looking for some worthwhile exploitation involving Frankenstein, check out the definitive version of the classic, that's right, gang, Andy Warhol's Frankenstein. Udo Kier will make you forget all about the big bad nightmare. But if you're some kind of sick freak, and you're into Florida Bore or other forms of self-torture, you should really see How To Make A Doll, although, that one is 350,000 times better than Frankensteins Bloody Nightmare. You know what, I've never done this before but this one is getting a zero. Nice going, Hand. 0/10
