The Taint (2010)
Director: Drew Bolduc, Dan Nelson
Writer: Drew Bolduc, Dan Nelson
Cast: Drew Bolduc, Colleen Walsh, Cody Crenshaw
The water is tainted. The Taint poisons the minds of men. It turns them into raging misogynists: monsters who want nothing more than to crush women's heads with rocks (or other objects).
Imagine Troma had decided to make David Cronenberg's Shivers in the style of Peter Jackson's Bad Taste and you'd be kinda heading towards the right direction. Story is about an outbreak that's spread via the local water source, the effect of the outbreak is it causes men to go on misogynistic killing sprees. Its packed with over the top gross out gore, gratuitous sexual gags, dumb eccentric characters, crazy side plots and its claim to fame is it contains more cock explosions than any other film.

Bright, lively, and no scene ever outstays its welcome. Its really the fact director/writer team Drew Bolduc & Dan Nelson have bothered to make something different, instead of the tired formula teen slashers & zombie films and the fact nobody appearing infront of the camera takes it too seriously that the film works. Highly recommended its perfect for stoned out viewers or lovers of bad cinema.

(7½ out of 10)
