TAETER CITY (2012)

Written by Greigh Johanson

Taeter City from 2012 includes another group of writers and directors from Necrostorm, and the person behind Taeter City is none other than Giulio de Santi. Taeter City is very original unlike their first film Adam Chaplin which was largely a rip-off of The Crow. But this one contains a mix of Blade Runner, Soilent Green and the video game "Oddworld" which is still one of my favorite games for PSX.




However, Taeter City takes place in a futuristic city controlled by the "Government" which basically controls everything - a cannibalistic dictatorship. The city's main source of business comes from the fast food chain Burger Taeter. Something is different about these burgers - they are not made of ordinary cattle. They are made of criminals and psychopaths who, instead of prison, becomes food for law abiding citizens. After an aspiring burger disappears, all hell breaks loose and the members of the Authority must fight for their lives, once and for all.

Necrostorm has possibly established themselves around a new little genre, which simultaneously mixes the collective impact of what is often called "Boddy Horror". By only focusing on the bloody and exaggerated ramifications of being a living thing made from meats, is this movie a focused training, as well as a wrong-headed aplomb. But despite this, the film is beguiling, uncomfortable and succeeds play teacher a line, like an absurd creature without any dishonesty. Much like their previous work, Taeter City is a film that causes violence through the use of digital and practical effects on a very small budget. As previously Necrostorm reach their goals in an admirable manner by creating a compelling movie experience.


Taeter City takes place in a degraded environment and it's offered in the rush of adrenaline from the very first sequence. The real star of this movie is the action and especially the rendered effects. The violence-level is maxed, people get maimed, heads gets crushed  and bodies exploding. Despite the film's low budget I appreciated the cheesy costumes and the futuristic technology and even if it's very cheesy, it's certainly not bad, and as I previously said; the movie is very original. The flashbacks are presented as frantically digital files, and the summary are explained by a dictator-advertising.



This movie is killing all the regular points that sci-fi movies usually offer. The action sequence is very well edited and looks like a living anime, with quick movements and extreme measures and it will obviously leave you breathless. The most positive thing is that the film isn't longer than 65 minutes, which is just enough time for one of these over hyped violence movies.
