AMERIKAN HOLOKAUST ** U.S.A. 2013 Dir: Chris Woods 76 mins

Get your sick bag ready and lock your doors as this film is twisted. Two demented Vietnam veterans (Michael Mashburn and Antwan Mercer) decide the world is not for them and lock themselves away. To make the world a better place...in their eyes...they go about abducting women and torturing them on camera for their own amusement.
Not only do they get tortured in disgusting ways they even have to have sex with these deranged pair. If they do not do as they are told they won't be able to join Mashburn and Mercer's army, this will lead to their agonising deaths. What goes around comes around though. This film was not only heavily censored but also banned at one time and you can certainly see why any film censor would have trouble with it. It is shot well enough and brings to mind the 1977 film 'THE LAST HOUSE ON DEAD END STREET' in terms of its pure rawness. Let us look past all the gore and vomit inducing scenes of torture for a moment, as this film also has a running social commentary brought to us by the two twisted vets. At one point in the film they go off about the government seeing them as radicals because they go out and bulk buy food in cans but the government does nothing about the terrorists who roam the country. These two sickos might have a point with some of the stuff they say but their actions will leave a bad taste in your mouth. Sickening and deeply disturbing on so many levels.
