About the Movie
After years of rotting in Joliet, Les, a wrongfully imprisoned street legend known as 'The Ghoul,' is released into a mad search through Chicago's back alleys for the man who slaughtered his mother and robbed him of his soul.
Indy cult horrific thriller
Chicago Rot is a gory masterpiece with all the earmarks of an indy cult horrific thriller. From the guy in the background jerking off while wearing a blue leisure suit, down to the significance of the license plate on a green Cadillac, there's enough in the cracks of this film to dissect and discuss for years.
Unfortunately, the story of "The Ghoul" is lost in the show stealing barrage of blood. It's a hard to follow sea of death where a voice on the radio detailing the back story is the only time you're sure to have it right.
The characters don't command emotional attachments leaving the audience feeling apathetic toward who lives and who dies. However, the fight, murder and death by dildo scenes are so well shot and assembled, competently revealing brutal moments with striking detail, that you are compelled to wish for everyone in the film to die, simply to take pleasure in the carnage.
The special effects are incredible. The sound effects are fantastic. The music is great albeit at times ponderous to the point I was eager to hear a voice without music beneath it. An amazing job from start to finish on the visual candy and the construction of the scenes were the enabling forces that allowed me to finish watching this movie even when not completely in tune with the narrative.
I look forward to their next film, where perhaps I'll find myself being emotionally involved with the characters.
But, what do I know? I enjoy Adam Sandler movies.
this movie is a ROCK CONCERT!
if you love rock music, this movie is for you! some of the most compelling musical score i have ever heard. the plot is part cop story "who done it?" mixed with horror and sci-fi elements with layers and layers of sub-plot. incredible action sequences and even better shots of Chicago and its "rot." really enjoyed the movie. would def. recommend to a friend...who loves blood and guts.
Awesome Indy Horror/Sci Fi
