I wish we had a zero stars. This was a piece of garbage. Totally misogynistic and racist, it wasn't funny or entertaining. The dialogue was horrid as were the terrible effects. The story - what existed of one - was amazingly bad as was the terrible soundtrack. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. I didn't even bother reposting, I tossed it into the trash. Worthless.

Silence of the Lambs Too
(1 out of 5 stars)
"A low rent, horribly written, acted, and directed exploitation film, Skinner tries to be "Silence of the Lambs Too", with "Xena's" Joxer (Ted Raimi) as Dennis Skinner, the Buffalo Bill character who likes to skin his victims and play dress up, and Traci Lords as the female protagonist determined to track him down. Apparently, (this is never explained in the story) Lords' character was one of Skinner's victims who managed to escape before he finished the dirty deed. She has nasty scars on her arm and leg and has to inject herself with something, presumably to ease the pain. Throughout the movie, she either stands in water or limps around muttering threats of revenge, mostly unintelligible as the audio in this movie sucked. Worse still, the DVD has visible frame roll. Don't bother."

"Picture Joxer the Mighty, almost stark naked, and psychotic. If ever there were anyone who could surprise you with his versatility, it's Ted Raimi. His character, Dennis Skinner ranks right up there with Hannibal Lecter and Patrick Channing. An innocent looking nice-guy, Ted Raimi will most definitely disturb you with his not-so-nice-guy behavior once the lights go out. A great movie, especially if you like blood & gore. They don't skimp on the skinning either. I recommend it for anyone's horror movie collection. ~SerialZero"
An interesting failure

"Worth watching once to see the movie it might have been. An amazing performance from Raimi, who slides deftly among the layers of the psychopathic title character without once overplaying his hand in a truly chilling performance. Ricki Lake is also subtle and effective as the unhappy landlady with a slowly growing attraction for her strange boarder. Unfortuately, the high-caliber performances are wasted on a meandering script and unfocused direction -- and a fatally slow pace which destroys any interest we might have in what's going on. As for the gore, it isn't that it's too much, it's that it's not enough. Too little and too late, it's almost half-an-hour before we know anything more about the movie than what we read on the box, and by then we're no longer interested. A shame, and most of the people involved deserved better."
