From the archives…”Botched”

Botched (Released Oct. ’07 NYC Horror Film Fest/May 13, ’08 DVD) 7.5 of 10 on the Gash-O-Meter
aka: Botched: Voll Verkackt!
Director: Kit Ryan
Starring: Stephen Dorff, Jaime Murray, Sean Pertwee
Running Time: 91 minutes Rated: Not Rated
Country: Ireland

The winner of Best Feature Film and Best Actor at the 2007 New York City Horror Film Festival, Botched leans more toward comedy than horror, this film relies on loads of gore to attain a horror tag. Very funny, quirky humor is punctuated by plenty of bloody good fun. The ridiculousness of the story and characters (especially the antagonists) just adds into the entertaining “over-the-topness” of the film. It won’t keep you awake at night, but definitely worth it for the laughs and gore!
