Chief Lazzara: So you're asking me to go off this theory you got about a white married male, who happens to be a father, living in the suburbs of Kritika County, who also happens to be your AA sponsor, which I might add has been secretly running around cramming objects, animals, and children up his asshole, then he somehow digests them, and he does this in sprees almost in serial killer fashion. Is that about it?

Detective Fox: ...Uh-huh.

Stop us if you've heard this one.

Chip Gutchel is an ordinary office worker in Kritika County, Florida, who feels unfulfilled by his job and put-upon by his wife. This changes when he undergoes a routine rectal exam and realizes that he likes the sensation of his butthole being penetrated. So Chip soon starts shoving increasingly large objects up his ass. First it's common household items. Then it's small animals. And finally, Chip's impulses are so uncontrollable that eventually he puts a baby up in there.

Still with us?

Butt Boy is a 2019 indie horror-comedy written and directed by Tyler Cornack, starring himself as the Villain Protagonist Chip and Tyler Rice as Russel B. Fox, the hard-nosed Cowboy Cop out to take him down.

This film contains examples of:

  • The Alcoholic: Fox. We first meet him as a new member of Alcoholics Anonymous who ends up being sponsored by Chip. He falls off the wagon when he gets suspended.
  • Ass Shove: The entire premise of the movie. It's Chip's modus operandi and gradually becomes his superpower.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: The baby in the park turns out to be Fox's son, leading to the investigation becoming a Roaring Rampage of Revenge for Fox.
  • Cowboy Cop: Detective Russel Fox, a stereotypically hardnosed investigator who gets rough with suspects, has (downplayed) problems with authority, and takes it personally when he realizes that Chip attacked his infant son.
  • Defeat Equals Explosion: Fox and his son escape from Chip's colon when gas builds up inside Chip and Fox triggers a lighter, causing Chip to explode.

  • Driven to Suicide: Subverted. Chip is initially consumed with guilt after ass-shoving the baby in the park and attempts to hang himself, but it doesn't take when the noose snaps.
  • Eldritch Location: Chip's colon.
  • It's Personal: Fox's reaction when he learns that Chip shoved Fox's infant son up his ass nine years previously.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: Chip's ability is never explained to be magic, or specified to be a trait unique to him. Chip's colon is vast and ethereal, which means that it could be an Eldritch Location, but it could also just be vast to the benefit of Rule of Funny.
  • Mood Dissonance: The film's humor comes from the outlandish premise (of a guy who shoves objects and eventually people up his ass, which turns out to be an Eldritch Location) being taken completely seriously by the characters as if it were a straight crime drama, with Fox's superior barely batting an eye when Fox explains his theory of how Chip attacks people.
  • Power of the Void: Chip eventually gains the power to suck large objects into his ass — including the fully-grown Fox — even from distances away.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Chip's ability to fit massive things up his ass becomes stronger as he acquires more victims, but he also becomes more willing to harm others. Chip's addiction also escalates as the film goes on, as he starts with objects, then animals, then children and eventually Fox.
  • Womb Level: Eventually, Fox finds himself in Chip's colon, alongside the other victims.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: After learning the truth about his son's disappearance, Fox attempts to hunt Chip down with prejudice as a laser-tag during his son's birthday party.
  • Serial Killer: Subverted. Chip is certainly played up as if he is one, but it's revealed that being shoved/sucked into Chip's colon doesn't actually kill the victims.
  • Villain Protagonist: Chip is this. He starts off as an okay guy with a rectal kink, but his behavior quickly turns for the worse when he starts sucking animals and children up his ass, and becomes the greatest force to be defeated in the film.
