Film #34: HANGER
0 out of 5 stars
An absolute shitpile. If the inept writing & direction don't make you want to break the DVD in half, the bad FX & halfway house / outpatient clinic acting will. The director, Ryan Nicholson, is an absolute hack and yet another reason why the horror genre is openly laughed at & ridiculed. His films make Troma films look like fuckin' AVATAR, man. It's saddens me to think that this kind of shit a) gets press, b) is given distribution deals, and c) actually has fans (ok, this last one kinda scares me to be honest). HANGER is racist, misogynistic, & insulting (and NOT in a good way) and it presupposes the horror audience is made up of cretins & morally bankrupt gorehounds who think being offensive equals "horror." Listen... I could go on and on about what a crap-fest this movie is, but i won't. Suffice it to say, that HANGER (and the rest of Nicholson's filmography) should be avoided like a smoldering garbage heap, 'cause, you know... that's EXACTLY what it is.
