"Harry's hearing voices, they're telling
him to kill, and he's listening!
Did you ever wonder how far one movie could
go? Schizophreniac relentlessly explores the world of the
extreme with Harry Russo. Harry is an aggravated writer, killer,
and drug addict scumbag who will stop at nothing to destroy
those who stand between him and insanity. Driven by the demonic
voices of his ventriloquist dummy Rubberneck, Harry begins
his killing spree. From director Ron Atkins comes the first
installment of the vilest story ever to be filmed." -
Wow, what can be said about "Schizophreniac"?!
It's one sick and twisted film! It's original, that's for
sure. Also included are several full frontal nudity scenes,
both male and female, some bad acting and some less then impressive
special effects, but despite that, it's got some real shock
value and it's also quite funny at times. It's a no-budget
film with rough edges, but I feel that's the way it has to
be with this movie. I'm sure most people would find something
that offended them in this, so I think it's mission accomplished
for Ron Atkins.
The Directors Limited Special Edition DVD (cut throat video)
has some interesting extras, like an interview with the director
and also a documentary/interview with John
Giancaspro (who plays Harry) wich
shows us that he's almost as fu**ed up in real life as he
is in the movie.. You also get 2 trailers for the movie and
some deleted scenes. Problem is, the DVD hasn't got any chapters,
and that really annoys me!
I don't know exactly if I recommend this one..
"Schizophreniac" is definantly not a movie for everyone.
The big majority of people would really hate it, and it's
also not for you if you get easily offended. If you do like
no-budget, independent movies, and movies that push boundaries
(in so many ways), I would at least give it a shot, but you
might hate it..
All I can say is that this movie, for me, was a weird and
very interesting ride from beginning to end!
