Ogroff: Mad Mutilator (1983)
« on: May 16, 2018, 09:36:29 AM »

Director: N.G. Mount


"...The titular freak, apparently called Ogroff, is a deeply deranged cannibalistic maniac who lives in the woods and slaughters happy families when they stop near his hideout place to have some rest or a picnic. He's a real bad-ass because he disembowels the body of the child in front of her chained but conscious mother. He also pops out people's car trunks and we learn that he masturbates with his ax. Yes, that looks as bizarre as it sounds. Obviously, "Mad Mutilator" is a terrible piece of trash in every meaning of the term. The introduction of new characters takes approximately seven minutes. That's SEVEN minutes of staring at people playing chess in the woods and listening to atrocious electro music. The special effects and stunts, however, are beyond stupendous. When Ogroff pushes one of the victims' cars off a cliff, it's clearly just a matchbox car thrown in a sink. Another nifty trick Mr. N.G. Mount repeatedly takes advantage of is playing the soundtrack of another film (my guess a Hong-Kong martial arts flick) over the action sequences. The sub plots, allegedly added to increase the tension, are magnificent and 100% plausible. There's a girl investigating the strange disappearances in the area and she goes off wandering in the woods all by herself. What a genius! She also must be some sort of bionic woman because she pulls a guy's head right off! Unfortunately, for her, he wasn't the mad mutilator. The battle between Ogroff with his ax and a random woodchopper with his chainsaw is quite cool and incredibly messy, but unnecessarily stretched. The last bit of logic completely vanishes when suddenly an army of zombies crawl out of Ogroff's basement (well … hole in the ground) and the whole thing turns into a lame "Night of the Living Dead" imitation...."


IMDb Trivia: Runs a videostore in Paris for a living, and makes his own movies (on video) for pleasure, with a predilection for horror, gore and science-fiction.

Yes this is a French film BUT was in such a high spirit of the underground felt it should be posted here. Watching the trailer it does bring to mind Violent Shit though came to fruition years before. Love it that Mount is just a guy who runs a video store who just wants to get out there and do his own thing.

Have heard about the movie over the years but never really looked into it until tonight and felt worthy to share. Have seen others hate on this but for me seems to be one to check out, especially as a no budget filmmaker!

Watching this stuff doubt he gives two fucks if people like it or not...
