Bad Movies Beware!
Back in the 70’s a form of burlesque dubbed “Grindhouse” hit the drive-ins and movie theaters around the country. Grindhouse films were exploitation films that played on large amounts of violence, sex, and drug-use mixed with absurdity. The plotlines were thin at best, and the characters were more caricatures of your basic horror film stereotypes. Bad guys weren’t just bad guys, they were sleezoids. The good guys were sappy and wholesome almost to faultlessness, and the others were just fodder for the serial killer in the movie. Grindhouse movies, as bad as they were, did not lie about what they were and what they represented. Thus, the cult-following is huge. Even after the death of the genre, the movies are hailed as Trash Theater Masterpieces. The problem is that many young filmmakers of the current generation do not simply nod to Grindhouse.
Enter Remington, the new sleaze-bag boyfriend who is also, very obviously, the killer from the opening sequence. Meanwhile, Nicholas takes out the trash and is given a live bunny rabbit by a strange hobo. Remington is very affectionate and caring to Nicholas’s mother, Mindy. But when she is out of sight, he is abusive to Nicholas and plays on his weakness caused by his mental disability(see, I was being real there. Lenny from Of Mice and Men retarded, not Nikki Haley retarded).
Mindy is unaware of the abuse, and leaves for work after Remington promises her that he will take care of Nicholas.
She leaves, and he immediately calls his pedophile associate to come over and keep Nicholas “occupied” while Remington goes out on the town to pick up hookers and drugs. Remington leaves, and the pervert is slaughtered by a killer wearing the Easter Bunny mask from earlier.
The two Mexican helpers from an earlier scene arrive to sneak into the house and collect some things along with a giant brute of a bodyguard, and all three are slaughtered by the bunny killer.
Remington returns with his whore in tow, and the two girls are killed within minutes of being in the house. Remington catches the killer cutting up the last girl, and the killer is wearing the mask backwards. I won’t spoil the ending for you, since I know some of you are into the Grindhouse thing, but it ends pretty neatly for what it is. It almost reminded me of the television show Monsters.
