Honky Holocaust (2014/Troma Blu-ray)



Picture: B Sound: C Extras: B Film: C



Paul M. McAlarney's low budget satire Honky Holocaust (2014) has all of the ingredients that you would expect from a Troma production: nudity, extreme violence, and touchy satirical commentary. It also isn't very tasteful and at times is a bit too silly to be taken seriously not to mention highly racist. The special effects and acting are bad on purpose, after all, this wasn't created to win Academy Awards. When you take it for what it is, Honky Holocaust is a silly no budget exploitation film that can safely find its place amongst other Troma films... and it succeeds at being that.


In the movie world of Honky Holocaust, the Manson Family succeeds in igniting the apocalyptic race war and attempt to claim their 'rightful' place as the rulers of the world. The infamous cult instead finds that the outcome of Helter Skelter is drastically different than was prophesied and are forced to confront everything that they believe in.


The film stars Maria Natapov, Lucas Fleming, and LaNecia Edmonds to name a few.


The presentation on the disc is nothing to write home about in passable 1080p high definition and a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1. The sound mixing in the film isn't so hot with a LPCM 2.0 track and a musical score that at time overbears the dialogue. Understandable due to the film's low budget, the mix isn't overall pretty basic with no real memorable moments of sound design. Was there any reason to put this low budget film on Blu-ray? Probably could have been okay with a DVD release.
