“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.”
Gutterballs is something of an instant cult-classic, a film so bad that it entertains and excites to no end! It is filled with comedy, horror, gore, nudity and all the things you’ve come to expect from director Ryan Nicholson.
If you’re familiar with the Troma films (especially the earlier ones like The Toxic Avenger, Class of Nuke-Em High, and Sgt. Kabukiman) you know what you’re in for here, and Lloud Kaufman from Troma even makes a cameo as a crossdressing maniac!
Be forewarned – this film contains some pretty gross scenes, but they’re done in a very comedic way, which should not disturb too many. (If you’re used to this sort of thing, you’ll love this film for what it most certainly is).
Apparently, Ryan is working (or has finished working) on a sequel to Gutterballs, which I am yet to invest in, but I am in close contact with Ryan so will try to see it as soon as it is available!
8 out of 10 – Bloody good fun!
