Filthy McNasty

Low Budget Fun From Low Budget Productions
Posted Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Title: Filthy McNasty

Year: 2002

Genre: Horror/Comedy

Format Reviewed: Netflix Streaming

From the minds of the folks over at Low Budget Pictures, Filthy McNasty is officially described as such:

"Filthy McNasty is the outlandish tale of two nerdy chicks whose greatest wish comes true when a horny demon named Phil turns them into sexy sirens. But there’s a price to pay for granting their wish a price that’s paid in blood (and other unmentionable bodily fluids)!"

Written and directed by Chris Seaver, who also appears as an actor in the film as well, Filthy McNasty is a movie that knows its place made by folks that are obviously very aware of what they are doing and how they are doing it. And what are they doing? Making bottom of the barrel movies with almost no budget for fans of the genre that get the joke. It’s obviously all about fun, and that is its one saving grace. Fun.

To approach viewing a film like this as if it were a straight horror film would be a catastrophic mistake by the potential viewer. It is imperative to view the work of Low Budget Pictures as a combination of horror and comedy with a healthy dash of self-knowing parody to make the formula complete. It is also imperative to be aware that an open mind will be of service. Those without an open mind and sick sense of humor definitely need not apply. Those horror elitists looking for big budgets and top-flight writing/directing/production need not apply either.

The acting is mostly poor, but knowingly so. One interesting tidbit is that Scream Queen Debbie Rochon plays one of the lead roles in this film, and it’s always nice to see Debbie. She is one of my favorites, and probably one of the favorites of any self respecting “B” or below grade movie aficionado. And of course, what Low Budget Production would be complete without an appearance by Teen Ape. Still, if you are looking for quality acting, you won’t be finding it here. Having said that, it is not the worst you can find either, as I’ve found out to my detriment.

So is it a good time or not? I had a great time watching this film. It isn’t going to be for everyone, but for those in the know, it will definitely be good fun. It really has several things going for it. First off, it’s funny. Yea, its crude and rude and raunchy, but its still is just pee-your-pants funny as well. Secondly, Debbie Rochon. I’d pretty much watch her in anything. Thirdly, the comedy/horror/parody angle really works for me. So, my final word to you on it would be this, if you aren’t easily offended, if you enjoy low, low budget horror films, and you like a bit of comedy and parody thrown into the mix, then see this film, you’ll have a great time with it, especially if you have a group of friends that share your love of this genre, and enough beer to stagger a wild elephant. This is how it all breaks down:

Gratuitous Nudity: Nice amount of tits and ass.

Graphic Violence: The violence is early and often, though the effects are uneven.

Story/Plot: The plot is very, very been done, but the writing is good in a hilariously fucked up way.

Acting: Not good, but Debbie is a bonus for any film.
