Excellent Horror Flick

"Dr. Chopper is an excellent movie of cannibalism and plastic surgery gone awry. Twenty years ago Dr. Chopper disappeared when the police discover dead bodies at his office - since then people have been missing around Lake Tatonka and dead bodies have been popping up all over.
Turns out Dr Chopper needs body parts to stay alive and has been taking them from youngsters, like a pair of lesbian lovers and bunch of sorority girls out on their initiation. Backed up by some ghastly nurses, Dr. Chopper needs these body parts in order to achieve immortality. He is able to stir up terror in the hearts of his victims, and you really do sympathize with the young college kids, when this deadly 80-year old turns up on his bike, sporting his leather suit and goggles.
If you want to have a good time then this is the right choice! Sure Dr. Chopper is low budget, but the acting is good and the story has some really tense moments and some great scares!!! I guarantee you that this film will leave you in horror film-heaven.!"
Plot? Some. Dialog? Overdone. Acting? A little.

"Well, I didn't think this would be the best movie out there. Even for it's genre. The overall plot concept was not bad, but the details were pretty weakly done. I did find the movie's pacing to be quite well done though. The opening scene really set the plot moving and the first of the main group of kids to get it was a surprise.
The dialog was dreadful in places, especially the first scene with the two main kids, the guy's lines are terrible! Things are somewhat up and down from there on this front. I know its a movie, but even there its a bit of a stretch that apparently for 20 years hundreds of people have disappeared in this little town, only to later have their body parts show up, and the police never investigated.
There are no special features on this disk and barely even a menu. Does a DVD really have SP and LP? Why do they put that on the menu, only tapes have different speeds of play. Not that they allow you to choose one or the other. You will really have to turn down the volume as well, the sound is recorded incredibly high."
