So… mad scientist is developing a cure for everything… yes everything! He appears to be working in a barn with an ex junkie nurse. In a glass box hooked up to what I can only think is an air conditioning unit is what looks like a large side of pork, covered in jam, and its breathing. While mad scientist works on his human saving formula he gets too close to porky and it spikes his hand. Really couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. He then goes through some sort of transgressional disease. As he comes through the other side of this illness, I believe he was supposed to be reaching some form of clarity of mind, but this translated on film to him sat in dirty Y fronts and vest, spouting theories and doing forward rolls (yes you did read that correctly).
What has happened is he has created a parasite that will keep its host healthy, but… it needs a fresh supply of blood every day to survive hence turning the scientist in to some shabby vampire. There is an awkward and semi violent yet some how prudish sex scene between junkie nurse and mad scientist. This obviously means that she then needs to try and save him as that is a female trait right… personally I think I would have let him rot with his side of pork.
In the end scientist feels that he is too dangerous to live amongst the rest of us normal humans so decides to burn down his barn… sorry lab… with all his research, porky and him in it.
Little does he know as his time of inferno that he has impregnated junkie nurse and his parasitic quasi vampiric legacy lives on.
Chad Michael Ward… I am not sure what you were thinking with this film. All the sets look like you had to beg and borrow from your friends. The actors come across as people you dragged in off the street. In fact I think porky was the best in it. The script leaves A LOT to be desired.
What kind of scientist is working of the saviour of the human race with a staff of 1 anyway? I feel that there could have been an issue with a single point of failure here… I mean… what if porky hadn’t spiked him, the cure was successful and he was off to post his findings in to science weekly when he gets hit by a bus on the way to the post box?? I don’t think junkie nurse would have been able to transcribe his crudely drawn pictures of DNA or decypher his ramblings from his glass writing board (I think that this is where most of the budget of the film went).
Don’t waste your time with this film unless you want to scream at the telly for over an hour.
