Critic Reviews for Premutos - Der gefallene Engel
No excerpt available.
one of the most exciting, funny and refreshingly original splatterfests to be seen since Pete Jackson's 'Brain Dead'
To classify this movie as gory would be to describe Anna Nicole Smith as 'slightly obnoxious'. There are sequences in Premutos that would put a seasoned coroner off his lunch.
Premutos is full of severed heads, traumatized testicles, and a generally blasphemous perspective on history.
Audience Reviews for Premutos - Der gefallene Engel
I decided to give director Ittenbach one more try after seeing The Burning Moon to see if he could improve at all as a director as he has with his FX work... Nope, not one bit. However it should be said that I'm not sure if I can entirely blame Ittenbach since the English dubbing courtesy of Shock-O-Rama Cinema is so atrocious and distracting that it should be criminal. So it looks like I'll have to watch ANOTHERone before I can write him off altogether.
The english dub of this film is horrible, but its pretty comical. I dont think the story is even relevant, even in the original german language. You can tell the actors just dont care much about what they are saying. On the upside, the gore is off the wall amazing. If your a fan of splatter films, this one is worth watching
Young guy Mathias(Olaf Ittenbach)has visions of a fallen angel,Premutos wreaking havoc thorough the ages.His stepfather Walter(Christopher Stacey)unearths an ancient book of evil and when Mathias read it he is transformed into Premutos.Raising an army of zombies,Premutos gatecrashes Walter's birthday party and all hell breaks loose."Premutos-The Fallen Angel" clearly plays homage to classic horror films like "The Evil Dead","Dawn of the Dead" or "Scanners".There is an incredible amount of blood and gore-this film easily ranks up with Peter Jackson's "Braindead".The 30 minute climax is amazing-non stop gore and slaughter.We have a glorious kill count of 139 here and they are seemingly all shown.There is also pretty nice sex scene added for a good measure.Highly recommended.
