Movie Review: Dahmer vs. Gacy

Received a screener copy of "Dahmer vs. Gacy" to watch & review.

Here's the info on the film:

Deep within a secret government lab, Dr. Hess (Art LaFleur, Field of Dreams, Maverick) is obsessively working to create the ultimate killer by combining the DNA of two of the world’s most infamous serial murderers, Jeffrey Dahmer (Ford Austin, The Wright Stuff, Grappling With Your Demons) and John Wayne Gacy (Randal Malone, The Curse of Lizzie Borden, Creepies 2).

All hell is unleashed when a freak accident allows their escape … and the only hope of stopping the carnage is Ringo, a holy, buckets-of-crazy soldier “trained by God” (voiced by Harland Williams, The Whole Nine Yards, Dumb and Dumber) who enters battle with a shotgun in one hand and a whiskey bottle in the other.

As Ringo embarks on a road trip to hell, he confronts an army of Japanese ninjas, a super serial killer (Ethan Phillips, Star Trek: Voyager, Benson) and his own demons before the ultimate, bloody showdown.


I went into this with no preconceived notions,
just hoping to watch a great new horror flick.

Sadly, I didn't get that experience.

The plot is so flimsy, mishandled and weak that I was way past bored by the time the two killers actually start sharing the screen for their "epic" showdown.

And what a letdown that confrontation is. Poorly acted, directed and choreographed, the film just doesn't deliver on anything. Most of the dialogue feels improvised by the actors, and not in a good way.

By the time you reach the end, you aren't expecting anything worthwhile anymore. You are just hoping the credits roll so you can put this in the rear view and never look back.

If you are looking for a new, good horror film, look elsewhere. If you like low-grade, slapdash gore films, then this is for you.
