- Satan's Ride on the Highway To Hell! All Aboard For Mayhem!!
"We wouldn't get where we were today, Jimmy, if we laid down every time God swung his cock around."
I've had this movie on my radar for a very, very long time and the disc has been in my collection for about a decade. So what made me pull it off the shelf an watch it today? I have no idea. But I'll tell you what......it actually surprised me a bit. I was expecting the usual sorta low budget Troma flick. While the film is absolutely low budget, it was completely different than I expected. No gross out gore gags and no rampant nudity. Instead what I got was a quirky little comedy that tried to spread a message of good will. Seriously!
|This is Satan. Yep.|
|It's Satan....er....I mean....Roger!|
|The Metamorphosis Machine! Ooooooh! Aaaahhh!|
|"Here's two fives, gimme two tens!"|
|Bridget is a beautiful broad.|
|Oh Jesus Christ. Literally.|
When you factor in the bizarre and ineffective comedy, the oddball characters and the fact that the acting is pretty terrible, it someone all coalesces into some sort of beautiful mutant butterfly and manages to squeak out some charm. It certainly isn't a good film by any stretch of the imagination, but would I watch it again? Yes. Yes I would. Would I show it to others? Again, yes I think I would.
Nothing. Not one single solitary drop of the red stuff.
Nothing. Not one single solitary boob. On the plus side there wasn't any obese men running around with their junk jiggling all over the place. Hey, it's Troma....you come to expect that kinda thing!
We get to see Satan in his "true form" in the beginning of the film. Which is basically an emo dude with pink/purple skin, high cheekbones and long black hair. Meh. I'll take it.
Look this flick isn't for everyone, that's for damn sure. You're either going to dig it or you're not. I really don't think that there's going to be any folks that fall in the middle. You've gotta be in the mood for some quirky late 90's indie comedy schtick to even consider taking this one on. This may be best watched with some friends while the adult beverages flow freely!
