Do you like your horror films soaked with blood and gore? If so then The Orphan Killer is the movie for you. The film was banned in Germany. I don’t know about you but when a film is banned anywhere that just makes me want to see it more.
The film begins with an ordinary family moment with the Millers. A simple bath time for young Marcus and baby Audrey quickly turns violent during a home invasion. The children are then sent to live in a Catholic orphanage. Fast forward a few years, Audrey was too young to remember but Marcus was deeply effected. Marcus is ostracized from his peers, and severely punished by the nuns for his behavior. He nearly bludgeons one child to death for trying to hug his sister. Marcus is kept locked in his own room.
Fast forward again Audrey was adopted, now in Catholic school has pretty much forgotten her brother. That doesn’t last long as Marcus escapes his imprisonment and begins murdering everyone in sight. He finally catches his little sister and ties her to a chair with barbed wire. Luckily for Audrey, or unluckily for Marcus big brother isn’t the only one who can get violent. Audrey soon gets revenge.
This is by far the goriest movie I’ve seen in years. Heads are stomped, and barbed wire is used liberally. It definitely isn’t for those with a weak stomach. The term scream queen seems to be quite overused these days, but if the extremely beautiful Diane Foster (who plays grown up Audrey) keeps up the good work she will rightfully be able to claim the title.
If you’re a fan of ultra violent 80s slashers you will LOVE The Orphan Killer. Marcus Miller will soon join the ranks of Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, and Jason Voorhees as a horror icon.
