Criminally Insane review

I've long heard of this one, but I never knew how much of a hoot it'd be. Which is sort of ironic, as, at least in my opinion, there was very little in the film itself that was meant to be light-hearted. But the idea of a morbidly obese woman going on a rampage to ensure she can continue eating food at her own pace is definitely liable to raise some eyebrows and cause a chuckle or two.

The quality was what you'd expect of a grindhouse horror film, but I liked it all the more for that. The death scenes weren't amazing - the blood is among some of the fakest blood I've seen in some time - but at the same time, they had heart. And this movie, with the short running time of an hour and one minute, certainly had the deaths to keep in interesting.

The story's not particularly deep, and the acting isn't always amazing (though our murderess, Priscilla Alden, does a very solid job in her role), but it is a very amusing flick. There was a sequel released in the late 80's, starring Alden also, but I hear it lacks much of what this provided. If you're a fan of 70's grindhouse horror, and don't mind iffy quality, I'd recommend giving this a go. Worst case scenario, you'd out an hour of your life. I found it worth it. 7.5/10 (rounded down to 7/10 to fit site's format).
