Audience Reviews for August Underground's Mordum
You could tell that this film was made purely for shock value purposes. There is no true storyline other than a group of psycho friends terrorizing people in their house. It is crudely shot, with what looks like a standard camcorder. Scenes depict characters stabbing victims and then having sex with the stab wound, and other extreme and gruesome acts. Avoid this one.
THE sickest film I've yet to see in my 20+ years of movie watching! I'd heard before hand that this was the most shocking of the notorious August Underground trilogy and boy were they right! This second in the series is pretty much more of the same except it's way more gross and disturbing. A couple of new characters are introduced including a female who proves to be just as maniacal and sexually perverted as her male accomplices. The first film had a slightly more realistic feel to it and more believable characterisation, the performances in this one are a bit more OTT. It's still a raw and dirty looking film and it does maintain a bit of realism to it all. The make-up and gore effects were excellent and used to great effect keeping things gruesome without overdoing it. It's a film that's guaranteed to shock with one scene in particular of a dead young girl being raped in a bath tub an example of it's unflinching, taboo-breaking nature. Believe the hype, watch at your own peril.
After watching The Proposal, I was in the mood for watching people get killed. So I chose to watch this. It was really boring and I thought I was going to fall asleep but there were a few good parts. The acting was ok, but the dialogue was horrible and almost made me /wrists. The effects were amazing, aside from the gritty camera which was annoying, but everything else looked good. It seemed to me that 3/4 of the movie was people 'vomiting' on each other, which was kind of lame. The people in the movie were extremely gross and ugly and they were probably the most disgusting thing about the movie. Pretty much the only scene I liked was when the dude, uh.. I can't remember his name now, the brother guy, was like, raping the dead kid in the bath. Coz that was kind of cool.
