Blu-ray Review: BAG BOY LOVER BOY (2014)

 I have seen some weird movies in my day, but this one is up there at the top of the list!  BAG BOY LOVER BOY is the film you'd get if NAPOLEON DYNAMITE and AMERICAN PSYCHO had a love child together.  It has some horrible murders in it, all carried out by such an odd, socially awkward character named Albert.    Here is a brief synopsis of the film from the Severin Films website:

  It has been hailed as “raw, funny and twisted” (PopOptiq), condemned as “soul-crushing and dripping with filth” (NextProjection.com), and cheered as “a fresh new outsider vision” (Fantasia) at film festivals around the world. In this “sincerely disturbing” (Indiewire) debut from co-writer/director Andres Torres, a slow-witted misfit named Albert (Jon Wachter, giving what HorrorNews calls “the best male performance in a horror film this year”) sells hot dogs all night from the most unsanitary food cart in downtown Manhattan. But when he’s invited to become the new model for a manipulative fetish photographer (Theodore Bouloukos), Albert will be exposed to a seething city underbelly where desire masquerades as perversion and depravity poses as art. It may shock you. You might even be appalled. But you have never seen anything quite like BAG BOY LOVER BOY.

 This really is one of the strangest horror films I have ever seen, and I highly doubt you have ever seen anything like it.  The main character of Albert is one of the most awkward characters you will ever see in a film.    He is very gullible and naïve, which gets him into a situation that spins out of his control.   Parts of the film can be slow at times, but like NAPOLEON DYNAMITE, even in slow parts you can't help be entertained by the characters on screen.  The main thing you'll notice from this film is the characters strange voice and speech style, it's sure to stick in your head long after the film is over.
