100 Tears [2007]

"...see it just for the kneeless midget chase through the woods!"

Synopsis: Two tabloid reporters, looking for a career boosting story, find themselves on the bloody trail of the merciless carny clown and his huge, and I mean HUGE, meat cleaver.

100 Tears has been on my radar since it's gory trailer showed up at almost 2 years ago. The acting and dialogue looked amateur, it's kills looked over-the-top and hardgore...and it couldn't have been more spot-on. The body count is stupid ridiculous and get's rollin' with the slaughter of an entire half-way house in only it's first few minutes...consider my appetite for morte dans la cinema aptly satisfied. Our clown killer is hulking, menacing and ruthless...think Capt. Spaulding without a sense of humour. Running time is short, leaving the tossed-together detective story and painful dialogue sub-scenes bearable. I can't help but think of Intruder (1989) as a quick comparable. All in all...a must-see for any self-respecting gorehound.
