If you love thrillers, Medium raw will definitivelly keep you focused. The storyline appears to be fairly simple. It is set in an asylum form extreme mentally ill killers. At some point there is an electric outage. Consequently, all the cells open. And the killings start. One famous killer patient is the likely culprit. Fortunately there are two detectives stuck in the asylum. They will do their best to seek and capture that famous patient. Is he the one who commits all that killing spree? Do werewolves really exist? The thruth is even more twisted than we could imagine it. For those unafraid to see blood spilled over and over.

HASH(0xa133abb8) out of 5 stars This is a terrible movie Aug. 16 2011

Seriously this movie not good. I am not going to say anything cliche like its the worst movie I have ever seen or anything. Its just good old fashion bad acting. It is a horror version of little red riding hood. It is simply really bad. I am giving it a 1 out of 5, only because it was so bad I laughed once.

HASH(0xa133ade0) out of 5 stars NOT TOO WELL DONE Aug. 27 2011
By Michael Butts - Published on
Format: DVD
Set in an asylum for the criminally insane, MEDIUM RAW is a dark, sometime humorous, foray into madness. The plot centers on The Wolf, a notorious serial killer responsible for the murders of 14 young girls. One of the victim's brother is the cop who finally captures The Wolf. The Wolf ends up in the asylum and on Christmas Eve, a power outage results in the release of all the inmates who go on a murderous rampage.
Cop Johnny is played by Andrew Czymek, who also wrote the screenplay and directed. His performance is wooden and bland, sabotaging the film's effectiveness. Equally abyssmal is Brigitte Kingsley, who also produced, as the doctor who is also Johnny's bosomy estranged wife. Kingsley shows no emotional range and is often pathetically inept. X-FILE's Cigarette Man (William B. Davis) is mostly effective as the asylum director who is quite sinister. The best performances, however, come from the actors who play Mabel, the crazed cannibal and Oliver, the naked foot fetishist. Mabel's cooking lesson on how to prepare a human souffle is quite funny.
MEDIUM RAW is occasionally involving but its plot twist is fairly obvious. The Wolf costume is creepy and unique. Not a classic film, but not a turkey either.

HASH(0xa133f060) out of 5 stars FRIENDS DON'T EAT FRIENDS Aug. 20 2011
By The Movie Guy - Published on
Format: DVD
The first half of the movie builds the characters and lays the foundation for the film. John Rhys-Davies, one of the "sell" points of the film dies early. The movie centers around the wolf killer, a man so dubbed because he kidnaps and kills young girls and leaves a clue, "Are you the woodcutter?"

There is also an asylum for the criminally insane. We get to meet a number of characters: a woman cannibal, a man who collects toes, and a giant of a man who goes crazy when he sees an infrared light. The wife, or ex-wife of a policeman works there. His sister was killed by the wolf when he was five as well as his partner, more recently.

All the characters are in play at the asylum when the power goes out, and the criminals emerge from their cells. Brigitte Kingsley provided the eye candy and did a nice job as "the wife" who works at the asylum. Unfortunately the plot and script lacked. There was a good kitchen scene which should have been darkly funny, but for some reason didn't achieve the expectations. Wait until next month when the used ones hit the market.

No sex, no nudity (okay, some male from behind stuff.)

HASH(0xa133f39c) out of 5 stars "Fear has no smell." But this does! Sept. 3 2011
By Einsatz - Published on
Format: DVD
My mistake, I saw the name John Rhys-Davies on the cover of this DVD and naturally assumed that was a guarantee of the quality involved. WRONG! Instead, I should have taken note of another name, Andrew Cymek: writer, director, editor, AND catatonic star of this madness. The man was almost life-like in his portrayal of a cop out to trap a `wolf'. The second "name" star was William B. Davis (cigarette man on The X-Files). He looked very old and feeble under the harsh and unforgiving light, I almost felt sorry for him. Only desperation could explain accepting a role in something like this.
Most of the action takes place in a loony bin/sanitarium/nut house/asylum that would hardly pass inspection in any known universe or time period. To say it was grimy is to diminish the full horror of its shabby interior. There isn't enough anti-bacterial hand sanitizer in the world to stave off the germs one would get just standing in any of its dimly lit corridors! No wonder their staff was rife with idiots, who but a crazy person would set foot in that mausoleum.
As for the poorly plodding plot, it takes forever to get to any amount of action but when it does it's too little too late and assailed by a load of misfired jokes. Was this a comedy or a horror movie? It didn't work on either level. It didn't work at all. The biggest mystery is how they got any funding for this mess (based on whose credentials?).

HASH(0xa133f5d0) out of 5 stars dont bother Aug. 19 2011
By roxy socks - Published on
I like the idea of this movie. The leading actor who is also the director, editor and writer leave much to be desired, like talent for example. This movie is the definition of ignorable, fall flat horror films.
