Sexykiller   bifff2009 minilogo romance reviews horror comedy Bárbara is a medical student, a hopeless fashion victim and a relentless psycho-killer. When she mistakingly takes her fellow-student Tomás for a serial killer, it’s love at first sight. Unfortunately, Tomás has invented a drug-fueled device able to project the last image imprinted on a dead man’s retina. With dead bodies piling up on the campus, this will put Bárbara in a very tight spot…

Sexykiller   sexy killer carkillcr 300x200 romance reviews horror comedy This movie materializes the ultimate definition of a crowd-pleaser. I watched “Sexy Killer” in a practically sold-out theater at the Brussels International Fantasy Film Festival and the whole audience literally went out of their minds with enthusiasm and delirium. This is a pleasantly deranged, no-barrels-held, unscrupulous and 100% original miscellany of bloody horror and vulgar comedy; easily the most flamboyant movie of its type of the last 10 years or so. Many movies ambitiously try to mix horror and comedy ingredients but miserably fail, whereas “Sexy Killer” succeeds without seemingly too much efforts. I won’t claim all gags and comical references are equally triumphant, but generally speaking this Spanish movie from director Miguel Martí (Fin de Curso) and writer Paco Cabezas (The Appeared) is a genuine winner and I hope it will find popularity and distribution outside of the Festival circuit as well.

Sexykiller   sexy killer bathcr 300x200 romance reviews horror comedy The main trump of the film is undoubtedly lead actress Macarena Gómez and her unique depiction of the eccentric yet lovable protagonist character Bárbara. She’s a medical student with the vanity and obnoxious ego of Paris Hilton and the homicidal tendencies of Ted Bundy. Bárbara addresses to the camera and explains in great detail how she commits the murders and why – kind of like in C’est Arrivé Près De Chez Vous (aka Man Bites Dog)” but a lot sillier – and she considers herself to be a very normal twenty-something girl with normal needs and desires. She doesn’t even need to cover up her serial killing crimes, because who would ever suspect a cute, fragile and cherubic looking student like her? But then our serial killer queen falls in love.

Sexykiller   sexy killer gunscr 300x200 romance reviews horror comedy Miguel Martí and Paco Cabezas are obviously two completely horror-obsessed geeks, as they processed a massive number of tributes, inside jokes and references towards several classics of the genre into their screenplay. Spoiler! Click if you want to know» “Sexy Killer” is an unceasingly entertaining movie, with colorful characters and typical horror clichés that are deliberately magnified to emphasize the comedic effect. There’s the stalk-and-slaughter scene at the girls’ locker room at the beginning (with a fantastic twist), Spoiler! Click if you want to know» and much, much more! The gore effects are explicit, the sleaze is gratuitous and the humor is often crude and tasteless, but yet this movie remains accessible and hilarious at all times. See this film, if possible with friends and a truckload of alcohol and you will have a guaranteed blast.

Things get worse, as her brainiac-boyfriend just invented a device that brings all of Bárbara’s murder victims back to life as vengeful zombies. Will she be stolid enough to kill them all again and live happily ever with her boyfriend? The accidental resurrection of the murder victims is actually a terrific ace the script has up its sleeve. It does not occur until the second half of the movie, and the rise of the dead victims provides a twist very similar to the one in Rodriguez’ “From Dusk Till Dawn”. The twist is practically unpredictable, and once injected with zombies, the script heads towards the movie’s climax in which a fraternity house party is literally swarmed by the undead. In its own right, this might very well be a big wink to Fred Dekker’s 80′s gem “Night Of The Creeps”. (VG)Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.4
The fact they couldn’t decide to make a serial killer movie or a zombie flick and then simply combined the two themes into one demented movie should already say enough about their devotion to the world of horror.Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.4
