When the bus of a rock band named the Metal Dicks breaks down in a Spanish villa, they find themselves trapped and the intended prey for a town-full of depraved cannibals brandishing chainsaws and disgusting eating habits in THE SPANISH CHAINSAW MASSACRE, a film as ridiculous as it sounds.
Being a horror fan, when I see a film with enough balls to call itself THE SPANISH CHAINSAW MASSACRE, my interest in immediately piqued. Could it be a genius celebration of one of my favorite films? Or a piece of shit? Unfortunately, it’s the latter, but at least it’s got more gore and potty humor than you can shake a severed limb at.
The original TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE had very little gore. It relied on bizarre sights, sounds, feelings, and performances in order to create one of the most horrifying films ever. While this film most likely took a lot of elbow grease to come up with so much blood and guts, it’s reliance on grossous humor and ultra-gore shows that it really doesn’t understand the film it is trying to emulate.
THE SPANISH CHAINSAW MASSACRE relies on the broadest of bathroom humor, sight gags, cartoonish performances, and slapstickery and then slops it soaking with blood and fake guts going for broke to try to make the audience gag and laugh in a painfully desperate manner. There’s plenty of gore, such as chomped off penises and gutted children being eaten by other children, but not much else. This flick only goes for the easy humor and barely manages to inject a story in between fart jokes, bad acting, and the spattering around bodily secretions. Skip it. It’s not even bad in a good way, unfortunately. Some might say, “What do you expect from a film named THE SPANISH CHAINSAW MASSACRE?” but occasionally, good movies come with from the oddest places. Not this time, though.
