Troma quality without the Troma humour
Try to imagine this... a Troma film, that has typical Troma gore, Troma acting, Troma production values, Troma sound effects, Troma script quality, and Troma direction... but it isn't funny. It doesn't try to be funny, and it isn't unintentionally funny because it's so bad. This is Unspeakable, a film so unbearably terrible that I rate it amongst the worst films ever made. It is shot on low-quality video, looking like a perverse home movie. The sets seem to have been made by unskilled schoolchildren. The acting is just stupid, utterly stupid. The script has been written with one goal in mind: to include every offensive thing imaginable. That is about all this film does well - it is certainly a thorough catalogue of disgusting human behaviour. Paedophilia, rape, drug addiction, murder, and childishly-written obscene language.
Basically, this film is crap.
If you want to see a funny, silly gorefest, pick up one of Troma's good films, like The Toxic Avenger, Terror Firmer, or Tromeo and Juliet. If you want a serious, disturbing portrayal of a serial killer, watch Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer or Nightmares.
If you want to see an utterly awful film with nothing whatsoever positive to recommend it, and waste an hour and a half of your life in serious psychological discomfort, by all means see Unspeakable.
