I have just witnessed probably one of the greatest homages to grindhouse cinema in existence. This movie surprised me in every way possible. You think you can predict where it is going, then it takes a left turn, then another, barraging you with sick imagery, penis mutilation, incest and any other taboo you can think of.
Fathers day tells the tale of The fathers day killer, Chris Fuchman (pronounced fuckman) who specialises in the rape , murder and eating of fathers just north of Tromaville. At the beginning of the movie, Chris Fuchman is killed by a man called Ahab, but as the movie goes on we learn some things about Fuchman that have to be seen to be believed.
This film really does have it all. Blood, gore, comedy, even a cheesy commercial break. The film is directed by Astron-6, a film production company from Canada who have come together with the help of Troma to make what is, in my opinion, the best homage to grindhouse cinema since Hobo with a Shotgun.
So if you enjoy movies that are sick, twisted and movies that don't seem to care who they offend, then this is definitely for you. Even if that isn't your thing, I'd suggest watching it, as it is an absolute gem of a movie and will hopefully move Astron-6 and Troma into an even bigger league of movie making.
All I have left to say is......WATCH THIS MOVIE!!
Here is the trailer for Fathers day.
