If you liked Glenn on The Walking Dead, then this movie is for you. A "De-inhibition" virus hits a sleazy law firm just as our boy is being fired. Office politics and dirtbag corporate types are part of the mix.

It's not a perfect flick- it could have done with some editing to tighten it up and pick up the pace. But it's not bad.

A bloody comedy played out inside a law firm, all in the course of about eight hours when a wronged employee teamed up with one mad client got to dish out depraved revenge against the corporate executives with impunity, thanks to a clever twist. Clearly low budget indie film that relied on off-the-wall characters and non-stop humor.

The jacket of this DVD, describes this film as a "spectacular horror-comedy." I did feel that this was fairly well crafted, shot with interesting angles and a fair attempt in coming up with something different, however, not funny nor was it scary.
After the first 40-45 minutes, I was fast forwarding as this film was getting too weird and very repetitive with it's over-the-top violence. This was a film that almost made me turn it off after a few minutes, but there was enough interest created, for me to want to give it at least 15-20 minutes, so kept giving it some more time, until halfway through.
Expect voice over, as the character describes scenes. If this 89 minute film, was cut down to about 45 minutes, this may have rated higher, but not worth the watch, as there are better films out there done in this style, such as the 2010/2013 Kick Ass, the 2014/2017 Kingsmen, and 2016/2018 Deadpool series.

This is a campy, over the top with its violence film. For films of this kind, it was pretty decent. Some fun moments for sure. The acting was mostly good, I found Caroline Chikezie to be a bit stiff, but other good work by the leads. If you saw Kill Bill, the violence is very much that kind of violence. The film is nowhere near as 'cool' as Kill Bill, but if you want a over-the-top violence romp with some funny and satisfying moments, this is worth the time. I would never watch this with someone under the age of 18. If you haven't gotten the hint, it is a VIOLENT movie.

It was a funny, gory, cheesy, revenge movie and I loved it.

I really thought Glenn from The Walking Dead was never going to amount to anything outside of that show but this is not a bad movie if you can get past all the blood and gore. Don't get me wrong - this is not a great movie; if anything it will be barely watchable for most. However, I have to give it some props considering that comedy-horror movies are usually the worst of the worst. It also has surprisingly high production value and look for, what I'm guessing, is a straight to DVD movie.

Monthly profit participation, annual performance bonus, vehicle allowances,
gas, maintenance, insurance, chauffeur. Expense accounts, full cellphone allowances, paid parking, country-club fees. I've seen you admiring all of this, Derek. Isn't this what you've always wanted?

Mind if I come in... Derek?

Thank you. (Reaper enters)

Description of the virus at the beginning:

For the uninitiated, the ID-7 strain makes stress hormone levels rise, blocks neural paths, essentially attacking our id and throwing off a very important balance in our brains... The balance between emotions and reason that keep us from doing stupid shxt, thinks like punching your boss in the face when angry or fxcking your date in public when horny. That balance is temporarily severed, causing inhibitions to drop and basic instincts to rise to the surface as the infected fall victim to what experts call emotional hijacking.

Wiki: The id (Latin for "it", German: Es) is the disorganized part of the personality structure that contains a human's basic, instinctual drives.
===
...something my sister had been trying to tell me for years, what my new friend reminded me today. I didn't have a job. The job had me. I was just another fxcking slave to the grind.
