Let’s face it, half the fun of horror and exploitation is seeing some hot bodies frolicking around in the buff. And while I worship the female form, I believe exploitation definitely veers into the exploitive when only gorgeous women are on display while their male counterparts remain chastely buttoned up. Therefore, The Backside of Horror salutes the filmmakers and actors whom even up the score a bit by showing us instances of hot and juicy male flesh in their bloody celluloid fantasies.
Thankfully, former Buffy stud Marc Blucas does not have the same worries. As Jarrett, a down on his luck construction worker, Blucas shows us quite a lot in a kitchen side romp with a mysterious beauty. Soon, though, those primal tendencies take our butt baring hero down more ferocious lanes.
Based on a John Skipp and Craig Spector book, Animals got a huge push at some 2008 Fangoria conventions, but with a quiet direct-to-DVD release in 2010, this adaptation has received little to no attention.
But, a little masculine flesh on the countertop always deserves a second look, no?
