GAG (2006)

Gag was another one bought on spec. Unfortunately this one was a bit of a let down. Amateurish production and shitty acting (no actors I’d ever seen before or likely to see again).  The story line felt really slapped together make this one a little hard to watch.

GagThe only thing this has going for it is the violence depicted in the film. If for some reason you just feel like sitting down and watching a series of atrocities committed by humans to other humans this film has some value. This fits into the genre the movie “Saw” started off (Torture porn) and to be fair takes it to new depths of depravity. In fact they even use “Saw” as reference on the DVD cover but unfortunately for them “Saw” is a quite reasonable movie. This is not. This is just a sequence of torture interlaced with beyond shit storytelling and abysmal dialogue.

THE PLOT

I was able to sit through Gag. A bit past the half way mark I didn’t give a crap about the plot and started playing with my phone. The film itself tells the tale of a pair of would be burglars who break into a house hoping to score some loot. Instead they find themselves in the middle of a sick serial killers torture fantasy. They try to save other captives of the house. Do they succeed? I can’t tell you, not because I don’t want to ruin the plot either. Its just that I was too bored to follow it. There’s a plot and it does have a twist, but again the movie just generally to crappy to follow it closely. The only thing more violent than the deaths in this film are the deaths suffered by the actors careers. Those are some bodies we’ll never find.

THE VERDICT

If you’re in the mood for something like this I’d say watch Saw or Hostel. If for some reason you’re bored shitless enough to watch this, don’t pay more than a couple of dollars for this film. I’m sure you’ll find it in a bargain bin sale somewhere. There’s a lot of films you need to see before this one.
