Contamination

With all that is going on in the world today with Covid 19 I thought that I would give this Italian film a try while I was practicing social distancing this week. Well guess what?  Contamination was seriously boring as fuck.  

The story was totally unbelievably lame, and the acting was just super piss poor.  Really the only decent things  about this “classic” are the special effects and the music.  With the music it’s really only because its Goblin doing the entire sound track (so really how can you go wrong).  The special effects are done by Giovanni Corridori who did three of Clint Eastwood’s classic Spaghetti Westerns.  He also did the SE’s for Zombie, Keoma, Duck You Sucka, Escape From The Bronx, A Blade In The Dark, and many many other films.  Like I mentioned before, other than the special effects and the music I personally think this film is a disaster.  It’s only an hour and thirty five minutes but it feels like double that.  The special effects really are awesome though, and I’m glad I watched it just to see those.  Check it out if you like you some good bloody gore.  (NW)
