Let’s talk shock value for a minute here, just how nasty is a film called "Filthy"? Well I could tell you but that would spoil all the fun of watching this malicious little gem.  "Filthy" begs the intriguing and slightly apprehensive question, what would it look like if the Firefly clan and the Hewitt family had some freaky ass friends?  Well, what you might get are the protagonists in a vicious little morality play that teaches the universal lesson that sometimes its better to not get what you wish for.

Dana Diamond (Jennifer Bass) is a hard ass reporter. That’s right she’s the big bitch and she knows it.  The only thing Dana has on her ferocious little mind is getting the most salacious story she can, and on Devils Night, Dana Diamond plans to be front and center as Liberty City, Miami burns to the ground in a rash of violence and looting. 

Too bad for Dana, it appears her producer has other plans. It seems she’s been sent off to cover a section of the city that’s just about as far from the fighting as she can imagine, or so she thinks.   About the time Dana decides to pack it in and go off in search of some real action She and her Cameraman Rocky (John Biebrich) happen on Leonard (Chris Brooks) a crazed maniac who gives Dana a real “eye opener” when he hole punches a desperate victims eyelids live for the camera to capture.  In her worthless attempt to make the most of the sadistic sensation, Dana peruses Leonard only to be abducted and forced into his twisted families den of detritus.   Once inside, Dana will discover just how the “other half” lives, as she is subjected to both mental and physical tortures beyond the furthest reaches of her imagination.

Filmmakers Andy Lalino and John Karliss offer a bodily fluid soaked film that owes as much to John Waters as it does to Wes Craven.  The Filthy family is for lack of a better term “crazy as a shithouse rat” and prone to raging moments of truly psychotic and often hilariously horrific behavior as they exist in their world of trash and torture.

To illustrate the varying degrees of degradation that Dana is forced to endure would do a great disservice to the disgusting premise of the film. Suffice to say, it isn’t “Salo” but it certainly isn’t shy about subjugating the films heroine to some pretty vile humiliations.

Straight up, if you looking for the next "Cannibal Holocaust" or "August Underground" then you’re not going to be loving this flick as it doesn’t break any new ground for the gorehounds.  However, if you are in the ballpark for a bright bit of stomach churning, colostomy bag filling, testicle bobbing, raw-meat-man-eating fun then "Filthy" may just be your brand of compost.

SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIAL:
- Diamond in the Rough: The Making of “Filthy
- 3 Audio Commentary Tracks
- Trailer
- Deleted Scenes
- Blooper Reel
- Isolated Ambient & Music Track
- Alternate Ending
- Photo Gallery
- Cast/Crew Bios & Filmography

The DVD edition is one of those great, rare occurrences where the supplemental material almost outweighs the film. For a 35-minute movie there are some 3 hours of extras including 3 audio commentary tracks featuring the cast, crew and postproduction as well as a blooper reel, deleted scenes, trailers and an alternate ending. The highlight of the extras is a thorough making of documentary which features an in-depth look at all stages of production and features personal anticdotes from Cast and Crew, but more importantly provides a valuable look at the inner workings of a true low budget film. It is a nice feature and one that could be well utilized by aspiring filmmakers in familiarizing themselves with the day-to-day grind of a low budget shoot.
