Okay, Satan Place wasn't quite the Melrose Place of horror I had built up in my head (c'mon, it said soap opera from hell right in the title!), but still makes for a pretty out there SOV anthology nightmare. The dingy bare-walled atmosphere, the reckless imagination, plenty of do-it-yourself blood-splatter 'n' gore, and the acting... oh god, the acting, it's too perfect! The stories are some real weirdo wonders with Disposable Love and Too Much TV being my faves of the bunch.
Disposable Love is a flat-out gorefest as the world's most misogynistic husband "accidentally" kills his wife, chops her up, boils her bones, and dumps the gooey remains down the garbage disposal, all because she wouldn't get him a DAMN BEE-AH!🍺 Bring on the ghostly revenge from beyond the grave! And yeah, this dude is wayyy too into his sicko role and I kinda dig it!
Too Much TV was the other standout. Easily the most unique of the bunch as a couch potato hatin' Granny squares off with her boob-tube bewitched daughter, it's pretty great! You gotta love all the killer movie parodies – Missouri Mop Massacre! Nursing Home Revenge! Bathroom Bullies! DON'T Go In The Kitchen! And a disposable dildo commercial, cause why not? Fun, fun stuff!" - Some Dude On Letterboxd
"I am a total sucker for horror anthologies and if they're homegrown with Satan in the title and from the late '80s, YES PLEASE [on Letterboxd the year is listed as 1990, but the VHS r.i.p.l.o.l. I watched said '88]. All four segments had clever DIY special FX, great music, and were surprisingly consistent in tone & quality, which is actually rather hard to pull off in an anthology, if I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be the 3rd segment: "TOO MUCH TV" but the 1st segment "DISPOSABLE LOVE" is a close second. Highly recommended to anthology/trash enthusiasts." - Some Girl On Letterboxd
