'Chop - Unrated'
(Will Keenan, Timothy Muskatell, Ricardo Gray, Max Haaga, et al / DVD / R / 2012 / The Collective)
Overview: A revenge thriller with a comedic edge centering on a seemingly innocent young couple forced by a psychotic stranger to confront their duplicitous past deeds.
DVD Verdict: In truth, I have seen some work by this producer before and was very impressed how he can take a low budget and make a great horror flick. As a fan of the horror genre, I recommend this flick wholeheartedly.
Will Keenan stars as Lance, our victim who is hounded and forced to do things. Tanisha Mukherjee plays his wife. Camille Keaton (gang raped in the original 'I Spit on Your Grave') plays Mrs. Keenan. B-movie actor Timothy Muskatell also does an excellent job as the bizarre tormenter of Lance.
'Chop' balances comedy and horror flawlessly, the plot has more twists and turns than a high-speed chase on a San Francisco street, the technical aspects are all amazing, and overall 'Chop' is as close to a perfect indy horror film as I have ever seen.
In closing, 'Chop' is an excellent film with a quite decent soundtrack, great script, good quirky characters, and a touch of dismemberment! There are some F-bombs, some explicit sex talk, and even scenes of oral sex, but no nudity. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
