I've seen enough no-budget, backyard movies to know that 90% of them horrible garbage made by people who think they can make a movie just because they have a camera. So why do I keep watching them? Because sometimes a movie like Mulch will come along -- a gory, funny, and genuinely well-made movie that just blows me away.
|It's always a fun time at Boo Boo's playhouse|
For a no-budget, backyard film that was shot over the course of a decade in the off-hours of the cast and crew, Mulch blows me away with how polished and cohesive it is. This ain't one of those zero-budget trash movies on Youtube where people walk around dimly lit woods for an hour and thirty minutes and bore you to tears with bad sound and a black hole where a script should be. No, Mulch is a bona fide, feature-length movie with a wild script and some amazing gore gags courtesy of Scott Patterson and the Four Horsemen. It's intentionally sleazy and breezy, spilling -- reportedly -- over 80 gallons of fake blood in the process. It is, by far, the most exciting and successful home-made B-movie I've seen this year.
