Remember back in the day when horror movies were just entertainment, when they didn’t have to be smart or groundbreaking, just fun? They had lots of blood, lots of boobs, zero logic, and we loved them. If you have been missing that kind of shameless horror fun, Muck is for you!
Muck starts off where most films enter their final act. A group of friends, stand-up guy Noah (Bryce Draper), bitchy Kylie (Stephanie Danielson), Smart ass Billy (Grant Alan Ouzts), whiny Mia (Lauren Francesca), and sex pot Desiree (Laura Jacobs) are making their way to a dark house near the marsh. They have just been through hell and are trying to find help, Billy is bleeding pretty bad. They whole up inside and Noah takes off to call for help. While he is gone, the rest of the group is attacked by “creepers”.
That seems simple but there is a lot going on in this flick. Muck wants to get you dirty. Remember I said blood. There are gallons of blood from wall to wall, covering all the beautiful women that run, strip, and scream across the screen. The film features Playboy Playmate Jaclyn Swedberg who (SPOILER ALERT) has one of the best death scenes in the film. However, with all the beautiful bodies running around, there is still room for the guys to do their thing. Grant Alan Ouzts owns his scenes as Billy, the wounded smart ass of the group. He is hysterical but his reactions still seem plausible, which is a trick. As for the man Kane Hodder, his appearance is brief but foreshadows what we will be seeing in Muck: Feast of Saint Patrick. I have a feeling it’s going to get insane.
I can’t go into too much detail because the way the film is structured, you have to talk about nothing or everything. What I can tell you is that it jumps back and forth in time and locations. Structure-wise, think of it like pulp fiction, it will all come together in the end.
Speaking of which, Muck is a trilogy. This is the middle chapter so whatever you think you missed, it’s on the way. The prequel will be released next year then it’s on to the sequel. This is a fun movie that is meant to be just that. Don’t over think it, just go with the flow. If you do that, you will have a great time. After all, that is what movies are for.
