L.A. Slasher (2015) Review
L.A. Slasher (2015) is an American fantasy comedy horror movie that revolves around crimes. Director and co-writer Martin Owen (Barry Brown (2009), L.A. Slasher (2015), Middle Ground (2012), Let’s Be Evil (2015)) did an incredible job directing this movie. I do not like this film although because it is not the type of movie that I enjoy. I think you have to have a certain mind frame to enjoy the movie for what it is. Wit that said, I gave this movie a five because it was great and entertaining, but it is not for everyone.
L.A. Slasher did not hesitate on hating on reality TV shows. The L.A. Slasher (Andy Dick - NewsRadio (1995), The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride (1998), Road Trip (2000), The Cable Guy (1996)) has had enough of everyone worshipping celebrities. He decides to take action and publicly kidnaps the celebrities. He punished them for their behaviors by humiliating and torturing them. People start thinking if their lives are better off without the celebrities and their lifestyles. The LA Slasher posts the horrible things he is doing to the celebs on his website. The mayor is not following through on his word to protect the celebs from this maniac kidnapper. The killer goes out every day like a normal person and looks for his next prey to kidnap. There are two drug dealers in this movie that took the spotlight with their impressive performances and storyline. There is not much more I can say about this movie without spoiling the entire movie.
This movie is not scary in the least and should not be labeled as a horror movie technically. The horrifying thing about this movie is the L.A. Slasher kidnapping his victims to only torture and humiliate them. The killings were not terrifying, but the mental torture was dark and sickening. I was a bit uncomfy with the humiliation and torture, and I guess a lot of other people might also be. The movie did leave me thinking about if there is a secret therapy group for serial killers ? There are groups for just about everything today, and an anonymous serial killer therapy group is not a farfetched idea, hmmm.
