by Lee James Turnock
Another 'video nasty' bad boy, this twofer rip-off of [i]Halloween[/i] and [i]Halloween 2[/i] certainly delivers the gory goods - heads are drilled, roasted and sliced open on bandsaws, eyeballs are violated and the ever-reliable Luigi Montefiore (AKA George Eastman) spills his guts again (it was getting to be a habit after [i]Anthropophagus[/i]!) - but since it was directed by Joe D'Amato, be prepared to sit through a ton of padding to get to the meat. Sleaze star Edmund Purdom plays a biophysicist priest (right...) who's responsible for creating an indestructible lunatic (our George), and the film follows his bloody rampage through what's obviously supposed to be suburban America where everybody's watching the Superbowl on television, but the giveaway that this is Italian schlock - apart from the gloating emphasis on evisceration - is that all the characters stand around snacking on pasta. As long as Eastman is front and centre, it's fine, but when he isn't, [i]Absurd[/i] drifts into tedium - which is surprising, given the transgressive delights D'Amato offered up in 1979's [i]Beyond the Darkness[/i].
