Beating a man to death with baseball bats? Disturbing. Three topless women beating a man who's hung by his feet like a pinata, followed by Drake slashing his guts open with a razor-covered baseball bat and the girls cheering? Bloody Hilarious.
Likewise the scene with Logan getting decapitated. Getting his head chopped off with barbed wire? Horrible. A woman in a bikini and fur coat dancing in the blood fountain? Hilarious.
Moment of Awesome: Abby's tussle with The Drake at the end of the movie in which, after getting her hand messily destroyed with a lawn mower, she turns it around and repeatedly shanks him with the exposed arm bone!
Invoked. Since it was adapted from a fake trailer for the Grindhouse series, this is to be expected.
If anything, inverted. While the film was clearly intended to be So Bad, It's Good, it's incredibly competently made and Rutger Hauer puts in a performance that would be career-defining from any other actor (and only not so for Hauer because Blade Runner exists).
Spiritual Licensee: This may just be the best Hotline Miami film ever made. There's over-the-top violence, gangsters in white suits, tons of color, 80s-style synth music, and even some drug influence in the plot.
Tear Jerker: A few scenes manage to evoke this, surprisingly. Slick and Drake's last conversation and the Hobo's speech to the infants pull off a certain amount of emotion.
