YMMV / The Wizard of Gore

Go To

  • Nightmare Retardant:
    • Montag utterly fails to be intimidating and he looks like someone's Uncle Ned.
    • Honorable mention to Jack's scene as he walks around saying flatly, "Your hand is bleeding. Your hand is bleeding. Wake up. Wake up. Your hand is bleeding". He does pick up a bit when he reaches Frank, but then he takes on the silliest possible accent.
  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: The film's effects looked excellent, and were definitely stuff you hadn't seen before, even in other gore flicks... in 1970. Nowadays, it looks very badly thrown together; special mention going to a scene where a character constantly changes between an actress, a male stand-in, and a dummy. Glaringly noticeably, at that.

  • Twist Ending: The villain has been defeated! No wait... he's wearing the skin of the fiance. No, wait... the girl was the master hypnotist and Montag was the subject. No, wait... it was all just a dream Montag happened to have during a brief moment on stage. Or Was It a Dream??
