Movie Reviews

She rocked my world!
Jackie Coupe | UK, Blackburn | 12/27/2006

"As one of the honoured few who have seen this prior to release I have to tell you that you're in for a treat.
Sickness and depravity reign supreme as you watch a mild mannered library assistant gone rabid in a small town. WITH A CHAINSAW!
'Sally' takes schlock to an all new level with Burill giving us reason to believe the heart of horror is alive and well.
Theres some slang in there you might not get first time round, (I'm british), but you'll be more than happy to watch it again.
The effects were very well done and in all I appreciated having something new to watch.
I wouldn't be surprised to see this become one of the biggest indie film releases of the year.
Support new horror! Get your hands on Chainsaw Sally, she bites, but you'll love her anyway.
It gets my vote!"

"Meet Sally, quiet, mild-mannered librarian of the Porterville library, she lives with her extremely strange cross-dressing brother Ruby. Likes quiet nights in front of the tube watching the latest horror marathon, fudgesicles and small but deadly chainsaws. Dislikes greedy land developers, loudmouth miscreants who can't keep quiet in the library, misogynistic pool-playing chumps, and people who have problems spelling "malt." Watch Sally and Ruby cut a path to greatness, all the while showing their small community the meaning of "family values."

Chainsaw Sally has a fairly standard plot line; brother and sister watch mom and dad get brutally murdered by maniacs (but not before Dad (played by Leatherface himself, Gunnar Hansen) exacts his vengeance and tells Sally to take care of the family). Add in a greedy scumbag land developer looking to raze the land and develop condo's where Sally and Ruby's home rests. Sounds like your run-of-the-mill horror plot? Wrong!

What sets Chainsaw Sally apart from many other indie horror flicks is that sure she's a cold-blooded killer, but this is a movie where the killer is the hero of the story, and I don't know how else to put it, but Sally is dare I say, almost adorable when she's laying the chainsaw smackdown on her well deserving victims. She's just so damn likeable!

The gore runs regularly and is pretty well done, I doubt you will ever be at a loss or think, "you know, this movie could have had a bit more gore." I enjoyed some of the kills more than others because given the title I expected to see only gritty chainsaw action, but I was wickedly surprised. Sally can do the Leatherface shuffle like no one else, other than the master Gunnar Hansen, you can tell she possesses the genes to swing a Stihl in true TCM style.

The acting was just a bit tedious at times, but I never thought so of most of the main characters, and in one scene the blood was a bit too watery and clear which worried me, but I was reassured in the next death sequence and let's just say I don't think I'll ever look at sparklers in quite the same way.

I also enjoyed the rockabilly and at times L7 like soundtrack that I think really added to the flick and gave the scenes just a bit more attitude."
Liked it? I loved it!

"chainsaw Sally is a great little low budget movie that cleverly avoids all the typical pitfalls of modern low budget flicks.
There isn't much blood in the movie, but I even gore hounds are treated with enough blood to keep them interested.
April does a magnificent portrayal as Sally, and JimmyO directs the movie with a secure hand.
Overly a great little movie that you shouldn't pass up on!"

"Okay, April Monique Burril is hot in her special, I'm a trendy goth kind of way. She's good in the movie.

Gunner Hanson and Hershell Gordon Lewis aren't in the film for collectively more than three minutes, which is disappointing. They're not a real reason to see the movie.

The gore is spread thin, yes. I did like the mentality of the film; it really tried to satisfy the gorehound's out there, but the budget restrained it.

What is good about this movie is the weird characters, especially Sally and her roommate.

This is probably a rental, though I'll say it's been one of the better movies on the Shock-O-Rama label lately."
