The crappiest chiller in recent memory, quite literally.
Former wrestler Maillet is the only performer who generates any empathy.
It's a grotesque, deadly dull piece of cinematic upchuck, a horror film minus tension or chills. Think "The Toxic Avenger," minus the avenger.
Theaters showing Septic Man should be required to issue hazmat suits at the door.
The results, deeply unnerving, impenetrable and wrong in all the best ways, might well linger in your brain like a bad smell.
While Septic Man might sound on paper like a little gem that Troma might have made, it is rather slow moving fare with much rambling around in dark sewers calling out for aid rather than traditional horror fare.
A big, messy, arbitrary handful of stupidity and grossness, lacking any sort of unifying gonzo aesthetic or queasy moodiness.
The yuck factor challenges your gag reflex at every turn.
Some horror freaks are bound to enjoy the show, geeking out over [the film's] grotesqueness.
A solidly built no-budget picture that will likely appeal to those already in the mood for a disgusting time at the movies -- brave people who prefer their slow-burn cinematic nightmares to be caked in human waste.
There's no fun in it at all, and worse, it's just plain gross.
