Would you Adam 'n' Eve it? Italian gore is back!

It's not fair! Not only does Emanuele De Santi have the physique of a demi-god but he's multi-talented to boot: for his first film, Adam Chaplin, a gore drenched supernatural revenge tale, he acted, directed, wrote the music and probably served sandwiches and coffee during filming breaks as well. The formidable De Santi plays man-mountain Adam, a tortured soul seeking revenge for the murder of his wife by horribly disfigured man/monster Denny Richards. With the help of superhuman powers endowed by a hellish imp-like creature named Derek (who dwells on his shoulder), Adam punches, chops, kicks, shreds, slices, and purées a whole heap of lowlifes in spectacularly gory fashion before finally confronting Denny for one last bloody battle. Having seen the trailer on YouTube, I knew this was going to be an extremely violent movie, but was still unprepared for quite how insanely gory it actually is. From the get go, the red stuff flows freely, but as the film progresses, De Santi keeps on finding new and even bloodier ways to kill off his characters; by the final reel, people are being smushed, crushed, and smashed with an impressive level of ferocity, regularity, enthusiasm and creativity. The excessive gore is obviously the film's major selling point, and it certainly doesn't disappoint: bones are snapped, heads crushed, bodies torn asunder—and it all looks superb (even the CGI blood, which apparently utilises some new-fangled method to make it more realistic than before). In one memorable scene, a victim gets thrown with such force against a wall that his entire body is reduced to a fleshy pancake; another sees a man impaled on a metal pole (up the jacksie and out his chest) and, still alive, set alight and paraded around by Adam as a grotesque, flaming trophy. There is, however, more to enjoy about Adam Chaplin than just the splatter: De Santi might be a newcomer to the scene and his budget limited, but he has delivered a fine looking film, with stylish visual flourishes aplenty, a well developed ultra-violent comic-book feel and unique characters. I love how nearly everyone in the film (other than Adam) sports some kind of prosthetic facial appliance to make them seem comically grotesque (reminding me a bit of the assorted weirdos in Ryan Nicholson's Hanger), and Derek is a particularly cool creation: unsettling, but not without his endearing qualities either, the creepy little fellow delights in revealing himself to each victim just before Adam tears them a new one. Produced by Italian production house Necrostorm, a company 'dedicated to creating horror, sci-fi and fantasy products that convey the 80s/90s atmosphere', Adam Chaplin is a serious contender for the title of goriest film ever made, and a real treat for splatter fans, perhaps even signalling the return of Italy to the forefront of gore-drenched horror. Enjoy! 8.5 out of 10, rounded up to 9 for IMDb.

Adam Chaplin, the demonic ex-Chippendale fist of the north star.

Adam Chaplin is the story of a man who wants revenge for the murder of his wife. This desire for vengeance has seen him strike a deal with a nameless demon who has made his home just behind Adams' right shoulder. The outcome of this deal has given Adam some insane fighting powers which will be giving the local deformed gang boss and all his unlucky stooges a real headache. Anyone familiar with the Manga or anime "The fist of the North star" will love this movie. It's like they've brought the crazy violence from this story to life only with a guy who looks like a male stripper as the lead. The gore is just outrageous heads are smashed arms are pulled off, people explode. The movie is obviously a small production so the effects are on a budget but that just means that these guys have had to be creative. There are some pretty neat little touches in this movie that I hadn't seen before, I especially like the effects for the demon when he appears although it's very basic I think it was very effective. The gore effects in this movie are mostly practical there's a tiny bit of CG in there but overall it's got that old school feel. It really is a triumph in these respects. The final rooftop battle is really impressive and worth the price of admission alone. The only thing I found lacking was the story. A lot of what is said in the synopsis is not actually said in the film. Also the ending seemed a little rushed which was a real shame as the film has a great look and feel with some quite fitting music too. The lo-fi production may put a lot of people off but if your gore hound or you enjoyed the "The story of Ricky" you should definitely check this one out.

What? A shot-on-video flick that isn't lame? Awesome!

A musclebound drifter named Adam Chaplin (Emanuele De Santi, also the director) wanders through Heaven City looking for the man who killed his girlfriend. Pushing him in his quest is a small demon that crawls out of a upside down crucifix scar on his back. His target, a deformed guy named Denny who runs the city and survives on the chemical Neurocril 3, hires a bunch of goons to take this threat out before he can reach him. Existing like some kind of live action anime film, this is a total 180 from the film reviewed above. De Santi obviously had limited funds, but goes above and beyond to infuse his SOV film with a sense of style. It also helps that it might be one of the bloodiest movies I've ever seen. The action is pretty much non-stop and keeps getting crazier and crazier until the finale where Chaplin is making heads explode in gory-soaked scenes that would make Ricky Oh faint. It is going to change your life or challenge THE EXORCIST as an all-time horror great? No. But if you are looking for some insane skull smashing, this is the champ.
