"It's gonna hurt."

100 Tears is a 2007 darkly comedic Slasher Movie.

Two tabloid reporters are desperate for a big story, and decide to do an exposè on serial killers. They decide to start with a local murderer called the "Teardrop Killer." They get some good information, including the fact that he's a clown, but eventually the Teardrop Killer comes after them.

This film contains examples of:

  • BFS: The Teardrop Killer owns a meat cleaver twice the size of his head.
  • Big Bad: Gurdy the Clown, the homicidal Monster Clown known as the Teardrop Killer.
  • Calling Card: The "Teardrop Killer" gets his nickname because he paints a teardrop in blood at each crime scene.

    • The guy who gets his face sliced into four sections.
    • The realtor gets gutted with an electric saw.
    • The male tenant who gets disemboweled through his groin.
  • For the Evulz: The killer doesn't seem to have much of a motive, outside of enjoying the suffering he causes. This is made apparent through his expressions while committing his massacres.
  • Gorn: Just to be clear, this movie earned an NC-17 rating just for its violence alone. It has a worse rating than any movie in the Saw franchise. Think about that...

  • Kick the Dog: The Teardrop Killer decapitating a girl in a wheelchair and pushing her chair down the stairs.
