"Mother earth gives birth to a child.
The child is taken into the System. The child becomes a man
and is struck by an awful truth: His life is an illusion.
The man meets an elder who tells him a story. Afterwards,
the man returns to the System. He becomes old and the System
no longer has any use for him. He is taken out to be executed.
The man has flashbacks about his life, and resists. He escapes
and manages to hammer out a message on a stone for future
generations. Suddenly, the man is taken by a force and exists
no more… Three years later, a young couple finds the message.
Without any warning, the young couple turn against their own
people; all hell breaks loose....
"Inspired from Peter Jackson’s Bad Taste... an extremely funny
and equally violent satire" - Vujer

fx are splendid, the guns are cool" a mix between gore movie
and black comedy" – Midsplatternight " -
This really excited me, mainly because
it's one of very few movies like this that's been made in
my country. We're not exactly known for our horror movies,
or movies in general for that matter.. Anyways, Bread & Circus
really is a weird one! It starts off with a bang when mother
earth is giving birth to a man, and that's exactly what we
get so see, a bloody, grown man coming out of a giant vagina
on the ground. There are quite a few nice gory scenes, and
I'm sure the Director is a fan of Bad Taste, as it has a very
similar look to it. I found the story pretty hard to follow
at times, but it really didn't bother me all that much, as
that's not what this movie is all about. There are lots of
funny, memorable and sometimes disgusting scenes that made
me laugh. Especially look out for the scene where a guy shoves
a bottle up his ass! Fantastic stuff. As this is a very low
budget independent flick, the acting is not the best. Quite
terrible at times actually. It might seem worse for me, as
they speak my language though. It seem so very, very fake!
As with the story, it really doesn't matter though. All in
all, this is a highly entertaining movie!
