“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.

Extras Pro­ducer in­ter­view. Rus­sell Lewin

Un­der the mask Jeremy Kyle was worse.
