Summary: A brutally sadistic rape leads to a series of bizarre gory murders during a midnight disco bowl-a-rama at a popular bowling alley. One by one, players of two teams meet blood-drenched gruesome deaths at the hand of a black bowling-gloved masked killer. This alley runs red with blood by sunrise. (imdb)
How do I even rate this? Objectively horrible in every way, and yet there was no point where I questioned if I was going to make it through the entire movie. Every attempt at humor fails, the sexual content was conceived by an angry virgin, and the '80s horror references are stupid and obvious. But somehow this held my interest the whole way, and I could almost watch it again. Weird.
This is beyond awful. The film can't decide whether it wants to be a slasher homage or a hateful softcore porn, and ends up just being a steaming pile of failure. The only redeeming quality is the soundtrack by Steve Moore of the band Zombi (credited as Gianni Rossi), but I have to admit I think a little less of him for being involved in any way with such a shitty movie. Films like this are the reason genre cinema retains a bad name.
Ryan Nicholson shows a lot of potential in his writing and directing, and has a lot of imagination in pushing the envelope in the campy slasher genre, yet he is still trying to strike a perfect balance. Gutterballs obviously suffers from a low budget, etc., but Nicholson's past as an effects artist really shines through as a lot of fun scenes are executed better than a lot of big studio productions. Is this turning the horror genre on its ear? No. Would I say it is a fun watch? Absolutely.
