“Guy comes here to get his penis sucked; it gets shot off instead.” So goes this scuzzy, cheap horror set in a Brooklyn brothel. A young woman has an abortion there which is flushed down the toilet; toxic waste turns it into a monstrosity.
It’s not Merchant Ivory then. But nor does it effectively mimic a Frank “Basket Case” Henenlotter vibe, being neither as funny nor consistently wacky as it should be – it turns into a dull monster siege movie with vague similarities to Alien.
