Girl with seven clits finds boy with monster dick...
6 August 2009 | by Vomitron_GSee all my reviews

...and that's about all you need to know about the plot.

Dudes & dudettes, BAD BIOLOGY is about 100% pure Henenlotter. Almost a little like TEETH on drugs & steroids. If you're a fan of his previous movies (probably BRAIN DAMAGE in particular), then you won't be disappointed. People who aren't a fan, they shouldn't even think about trying to watch this. It's totally crazy, though it doesn't have much over-the-top humor in it like FRANKENHOOKER had (but it does have a few hilarious scenes). It's gross, outrageous, offensive and funny, with a much more "indie" feel to it than you'd expect from Henenlotter. Lots of nudity too, haha! And Gabriel Bartalos provided once again deliciously nasty special effects. BAD BIOLOGY had me thinking: Screw lame PG-13 stuff - because that's what I like to call it - like ONE EYED MONSTER; BAD BIOLOGY does all the things ONE EYED MONSTER didn't have the balls to do. You'll understand that when you see it.

There was a time, many moons ago, in particular after I had watched the first BASKET CASE (for the first time), when I thought Frank Henenlotter made bad movies. Well, I was wrong and he doesn't. He makes his *own* movies, and the only work he seems influenced by, is that of himself. And that's not to say the man repeats himself. No, it feels like with every movie he surpasses himself on at least some levels. And it's no different with BAD BIOLOGY. Also, this film has a weird way of telling its story. Especially during the first half hour, Charlee Danielson (who plays Jennifer with the seven clits) often addresses herself straight to the audience in a monologue to give background information about her character. But you'll get used to it and things do not become boring. Both Henenlotter with his warped mind and Bartalos with his crazy effects made sure of that.

If you watch it, make sure you listen to the lyrics of the rap-song featured on the end-credits. This film was mainly produced by a rapper (R.A., The Rugged Man), and his lyrics on that final song, are about the making of the movie. A lot of trivia stuff in there. I even learned Henenlotter was diagnosed with cancer, just prior to shooting the film. Also their lead actress bailed out, two weeks before shooting would commence. All the more kudos to actual leading lady Charlee Danielson (her part was the most demanding of all).
