John's Horror Banana-nanza Episode Thirty-Three: Aftermath
This movie clocks in at thirty minutes. However, I'm sure I could talk at length about how messed up this film ends up being.
Directed by a guy from Spain named Nacho Cerda, the movie opens with a close-up tour through some guts. We're not sure what the hell we're looking at until, all of the sudden, the title comes on the screen, revealing the corpse of a dog that's just been run over.
AND WE'RE OFF!!!
Two morticians in a morgue begin doing what morticians do. Autopsies on two dead men. While one of them does all the normal, but still gross, parts of his job, some intern with headphones walks in and stares, blankly. In return, the mortician who's just standing around takes offense and glares at the poor guy so harshly I could feel him wetting his pants through the screen.
So the random, scared to death guy leaves, and now, Mortician #2 stares as Mortician #1 finishes his job. #1 then leaves.
So a third victim, a female, is brought in. And #2 gets all hot and sweaty. He more than carefully removes the clothes and begins the autopsy, but gets crazy excited, and by the time it's all over, has sex with the corpse.
Then, he takes her heart home to feed to his dog.
So...what the hell did I just watch? And why was it ever made?
I'm not sure if I can come up with anything intellegent to say about this movie. Usually, something with this much of a gross out factor has a message, like A Serbian Film, or Salo. This one doesn't seem to have anything at all to say. I get that the mortician is probably on his way to being a serial killer, but I don't get why that's worth a half-hour of film.
And what's with the dead dog at the beginning? Am I just missing the point?
I don't think I am. I'm of the belief that I just watched a crap movie, that somehow got a sequel called Aftermath: Genisis. I'm probably going to have to dig just to find a clip or a picture for this hub, but my point of these is to inform. This movie is on Netfilx, and even if you're a horror fanatic, just avoid this. It's a waste of time, it has nothing to say, and really, it's just gross for gross's sake.
