Movie Info

A professional thief finds his luck going from bad to worse when he's sent to Russia to steal a priceless antique crucifix and becomes the terrified target of a serial killer who takes the title of "headhunter" all too seriously. Career larcenist Ritchie Donovan (Stephen Dorff)'s latest job has just ended in tragedy, and he still owes a fortune to a fearsome Russian godfather. Fortunately for Ritchie, the crime kingpin is feeling especially benevolent today, and offers the luckless cat burglar

I probably would have stopped short of recommending Botched theatrically, but on DVD it's definitely worth a look.

Botched is bungled - irredeemably, at times even enjoyably, so.

A hit-and-miss comedy-horror. Mostly miss.

A sadly apt title for this crimer-cum-splatter-com.

In the end, though, there's only so much slack you can give a film that wears its cheapness and ineptitude like badges of honour.

Aptly-titled.

Hugely derivative, but highly entertaining.

Audience Reviews for Botched

Does this really get better after the first 40 minutes? Please tell me, because I'd really like to give this a chance, but I'll need some convincing.

There's a handful of laughs to be had with Botched but the obvious problem is that too many of them are hit and miss gags. There's plenty of well made gore but it's ultimate downfall is simply down to the fact that it's neither scary nor funny enough. I think it comes up to short in far to many places, it has a good story but as with most low budget horror's and horror comedies it never lives up to it's very intriguing premise. That's what made Shaun of The Dead and Attack The Block so great, they were both hilariously funny and nail bitingly scary at the same time. But there's an unfortunate sense of dullness with Botched that it tries to hard to be scary and think's it's a lot funnier than it is. It's very aware that it's been made fo a small amount of money but that can't be used as an excuse as to why the film isn't as good as it should be. The cast simply do the best with the material they're given but even they have a very awkward and off mark sense of comedic timing. It boasts no exciting set pieces or witty dialogue, and redeems itself only by some adequate acting and eye popping gore effects. It has bloodbath creativity i'll give it that much, but it's very self indulgent and think's it's a groundbreaking horror comedy, but it really isn't. It's just as unexciting and juvenille as it's title. Mediocre at best, even if like me your a fan of really cheap horror movies.
