sorry for the mistakes
Giovani, Belle…probabilmente ricche
The splatter film we deserve. The splatter film we need. The Troma
logo that stands out at the beginning, producer with Refuse Films and
Dereks Dont Run Films, is as always synonymous with a certain trashy,
brash and exaggerated cinema. British director Liam Regan, in his
second feature film after 2015's 'My Bloody Banjo' and after a few
appearances in a couple of Troma films.
A nice calling card for a film that generally passes the test, but
unfortunately has a few flaws that lower the enjoyment a little.
First we meet the protagonist Beth (Lyndsey Craine, face of independent
horror/splatter cinema) who breaks the fourth wall and in an exercise
in meta cinema tells us that every time she commits suicide she wakes
up in another horror film. This time he ends up in a romantic comedy
with a cannibal background, a subgenre that seems to be enjoying a bit
of a rediscovery.
This is certainly a very interesting idea, but unfortunately it is
completely abandoned in the course of the story, so much so that it
seems like an appendix as an end in itself.
Apart from that, she is a goth schoolgirl, like a Wednesday Addams who
goes the way of the pack, nerdy, with a habit of cannibalism, of which
her boyfriend is the victim. She then falls in love with English
teacher Miss Campbell with whom she sublimates her desire to consume
Ah, by the way, Beth is a vegan. She lives with totally eccentric
parents and there would be more subplots to add, but I don't want to
What needs to be said is that Regan satirizes using all the stereotypes
of teenagers and especially the fragile points of American education,
starting with a competition held in Beth's school 'All You Can Eat
Massacre', which results in her winning a gun.
Definitely unabashed satire to which is added a fair share of boobs.
Let's say that not everything runs smoothly and the crescendo is far
too exaggerated, but with several things Regan hits the mark and his
'Eat miss Campbell' looks like a modern, refreshed Troma film.
