Special thanks to Nap Bishop for providing this awesome American Gormedy!
Is it legend, or is it true? HogMaul is a local legend starting in the 1950’s that in Abrams County that supposedly killed multiple youth. Over the years the people of the small county blamed multiple disappearances and murders on the beast. After a few young adults come up missing, two detectives and a group of hemp loving young people come across the gruesome legend!
Why You Should Watch It:
The comedy and the writing in this film are superb. You would think that Nap would have an impressive list of films that he had written. The dialogue is hilarious and adds value to the film. Although it is low budget, Nap doesn't make the viewer feel if it is so because of the great dialogue and comedy throughout. The story is a good one and the brutality is fun.
Why You May Want to Skip It:
You don't want to skip it. This is low budget, but the comedy and the horror are real. I would put it in the same category as the original Hatchet, without the thousands of gallons of blood.
Rating: 5 out of 6 Skulls
“This is a must see horror gormedy for fans of American style horror! I'm very excited to see what the guys at Ill Conceived Films and Nap Bishop will do next!”- D. Mack
Bonus: Buy the soundtrack. With original songs like “Footjob Gang Bang” and “Corpse Fucking Rob” you will have a hell of a good time on a Saturday night. Think colloquial Rob Zombie.
