    With a protagonist that is most of the time irritatingly dumb and a repetitious plot that cannot come up with anything more interesting than a silly (and very obvious) attack on high society, this is a lame horror movie that turns into a complete mess in its gory third act.

    A film about every teenagers' worst nightmare: Your family is hiding something from you. Society is an extreme body horror black comedy that tells the tale of Billy who doesn't fit in with the rest of the people in Beverly Hills and suspects that everyone are aliens. It satires the wealthy life style of the Beverly Hill neighborhood and the puberty experienced by most teenagers. It's one hell of a film that you will not forget and certainly a cult classic. Brian Yuzna took the idea of orgy to the maximum. Society is sexy, funny, dirty and disturbing and definitely not to be watched while eating.

    A weird but enjoyable tale that pokes fun at the inner circles of the rich elite of the Beverly Hills community. The less you know about this one the better but it's a film that's worth a watch at least once. Special mention also to make-up effects artist Screaming Mad George for his creative and grotesque work. Make sure you finish what you're eating well before the end!

    "Society" is a bit disturbing movie, where the fight of classes is presented in a very original way. It has decent acting and great special effects. The story could be much better, but it is an interesting political and economical view. The only problem I have with the movie is the director tends to put comedic moments in the movie when they are completely inappropriate. Also, some of the side characters are just worthless and almost ruin the horror at the end of the movie. I highly recommend this flick to anyone that wants something different and original.
