    Better than you might think!

    An odd movie about a deranged "geek"(not a nerd,but a REAL geek-one who bites heads off chickens)paroled from prison on a murder charge to resume his mayhem.He sets his sights on a remote farm-house and all heck breaks loose!After a silly intro the flick slips into a cool suspenseful groove.TROMA put out this dvd and has all the usual TROMA stuff as well as some good Luther extras with extended and/or deleted scenes,drector(with cute dog)interview,and other suff.Check it out.
