Absurd Movie Review







Absurd is a 1981 horror movie and a sequel to Antropophagus. It is directed by Joe D'Amato and stars George Eastman and Annie Belle.

The movie begins with a man being chased. A priest is after him and the man gets impaled on some railings. He arrives at a woman's house with his insides dangling.He is brought to the local hospital where he is patched up. Seargeant Engleman goes to see the woman, Mrs Bennett and asks her questions about the strange man. The cops see a man on the road.He says that he is a tourist and they asks him questions. Engleman gives the man a lift. They end up at the hospital. He finds Drachmas in the weird man's pocket. He is healing really well. He awakens. The tourist guy looks at him and the man freaks out. Engleman asks the tourist what is going on. The man attacks the nurse and he escapes. Engleman finds the nurse dead and realises that the man is on the loose.


Engleman and the tourist guy, who turns out to be a priest talk to the doctor and look at x-rays of the man's brain. His name is Mikos(Eastman) and he has healing powers. He can heal his own body. The priest tells them that he was made that way after an experiment. He also went insane after it. The priest wants to kill him. The only way to do it is to kill his brain. Mikos wanders around and he kills various people in horrible ways. Engleman and the priest are going to scour the place looking for him before he kills more people. They know that they need to kill him. Mikos is walking along the road when he gets knocked down by a car. The driver of the car is Mr. Bennett, the husband of the woman who saw Mikos in the beginning. He goes home, leaving Mikos on the road.


Mr.Bennett is going out with his wife. The babysitter comes and there is a nurse from the hospital, Emily(Belle),there to look in on the Bennett's daughter, Katia who has a problem with her spine and is confined to her bed. There is a son there too. Mikos is on his way to the house and he kills the babysitter and he kills Emily by sticking her head in the oven. Before she dies, Emily sends the son out to get help. Katia tries to get out of her bed. He sees her and tries to kill her. She stabs him in the eyes. He stumbles around trying to get her. The priest finds the house and sees Mikos. Katia and Mikos struggle. She picks up an axe and she swings it at his neck again and again. The cops show up and see Katia covered in blood, holding the severed head of Mikos.


I enjoyed this movie. It was a decent horror movie with some very bloody scenes which isn't a bad thing! I don't really see how it fits as a sequel to the other film, but it doesn't really matter, I guess.
The movie was a video nasty and I can see why people who don't like horror movies would object to it, but to those of us who love horror, this is an entertaining movie with a great ending. I recommend this and I will give it a 6/10.

I don't remember this one, maybe I've never seen it. Will have to see if I can find it and give it a try. Sounds good enough in the review that I'd not feel like I wasted my time with it, which is why I love your reviews. Will make a good "peek over the laptop while I work" movie.
