Frank Hennenlotter returns with another over the top fantastic film, that almost defies explanation, but I'll try anyway. Hennenlotter is responsible for some of my favorite films. Frankenhooker, Basket Case, and Brain Damage. So when I heard he was making a new film, that would be shot on 16mm film I immediately got excited. See Hennenlotter is by no means politically correct and that is an understatement when you see this film.
Bad Biology centers on a girl named Jennifer, who was born with six clitoris's, and began menstruating at age five. She a total sex fiend who rides men so hard during sex she kills them. Immediately following climax she becomes pregnant, eat a bunch of food, then 20min later has a mutant baby, which she usually leaves in the trash. As no man can satisfy her she continues to do this on a daily bases.
Meanwhile across town we meet Batz, a young man with a drug addicted penis. See when Batz was born his circumcising went wrong. So rather then have a deformed tiny penis he began injecting it with horse steroids, and other drugs. It worked as it grew bigger, eventually monster sized with a mind of its own. When it senses a woman around it starts going crazy and banging itself around. SO Batz had to make a giant metal device to use to pleasure himself, thus calming his penis down. When this doesn't work he simply duck tapes it to his leg, with a whole role of tape, and on occasion shoot it up with traqs, or other downers. He is so huge he kills women during sex.
One night when he refuses to bring his penis a women, it detaches from him, and starts smashing through walls in order to rape women. See they way they die is because its so gigantic, the women simply orgasm to death. As you can imagine Batz and Jennifer to meet up and some truly trashy hilarity ensues.
As you can probably tell by now this films is not for everyone. It's trashy, vile, filthy, and gross in most parts. But that's cool. Every now and then you need a film like this to come along. It's definitely different, and that's something very refreshing, given Hollywood's trend to just re-make old films. Sidebar, this ain't getting remade any time soon, probably ever.
It's definitely low budget, shot for only 50K I believe. It can be ordered from Amazon, which is how my wife and I saw it. She though it was so dumb it gave her a headache. However a friend of mine from work and his wife watched it, and they both found it quite hilarious. I did as well, and I have no problem recommending it to others, just as long as they know what they are in for.
If you want to watch something funny, yet trashy, vile yet smart, and just a tad bit filthy pick this one up. Highly recommended.
Overall: 4 out of 5 Stars!
