 Tusk (2014)Review:

By the director of Dogma and Red State, Tusk is probably the weirdest movie that you’re going to lie your eyes upon this year. Whether you like it or not, it is something you must experience.

Without giving out too much (not more than in the trailer), the movie is about a crazy guy who abduct people to turn them into a …walrus. Yes, walrus…. If this sounds strange, wait until you’ve seen the all movie, for it is something unique in so many ways.

Tusk starts as a comedy, which for me was the bad aspect of it. Some of the characters are awfully irritating, especially the main character and the useless policeman character “Guy Lapointe” played by an irritating Johnny Depp. Supposedly a Quebec person in the movie, the latter keep talking with that annoying French accent, which is supposed to be funny but ends up being just a pain to watch.

Going further into the movie, one can only appreciate the originality of the concept and of the movie in general. It resemble The Human Centipede in quite a few aspects, especially the mental state of the main villain, played brilliantly by the notorious Michael Parks (Kill Bill, From Dusk Till Dawn).

Again, I found that the story drags along for too long near the end and is just too slow, but the concept is amazing and it would have been such a better movie without the shitty comedy aspect of it.
