Lowlife review


Sometimes a film comes along that is just so nuts that you just sit back and watch the chaos unfold.

Ryan Prows’ Lowlife very much has a feel on a Quentin Tarantino as we effectively see a story unfold through many characters eyes and none more entertaining than luchador El Monstruo.

As we open the film Monstruo provides a passionate monologue, which it turns out is to a teenage girl eating an ice cream; it’s this sort of film.

The heart of Lowlife is a botched organ harvesting that goes very wrong, then throw in the mix a pregnant heroin addict, a former convict with a swastika tattooed on his face.

Lowlife had a similiar feel to last year’s 68 Kill where we are given flawed characters on all sides, which in a way makes them more compelling because you’re not quite sure what they are going to do.

There are shades of a gangster film but Lowlife is so much more than that, it’s part horror, part heist caper, part comedy and all round excellent.

Just press play, sit back and let the bloody chaos begin.
