Storyline

The Troma Team is proud to present THE RUINING, a striking new work by filmmaker Chris Burgard. Filmed over ten years, The Ruining succeeds in echoing the grime and grit of late 70's and early 80's horror cinema. Traditional family values are disturbingly challenged when two Los Angeles couples run into trouble on a remote mountain camping trip. Thirty years ago government drilling poisoned the water in a small town. Half of the town died. Those that are left are horribly addicted to psychedelic eggs bred by old Henry Behrens. When the strangers enter into his domain the stage is set for selective breeding and feeding of human flesh. Henry's 17-year-old daughter Becky is beautiful and thinks that she is a German shepherd.

This is not a movie
5 March 2005 | by soapfumesSee all my reviews

I've been a fan of Troma movies for quite some time, and usually enjoy their trashiness. But this one is not even a real movie. It has no coherent plot and literally seems to be an unfinished collection of random shots. The effects are horrible and the camera work appears to have been done by a bored toddler. There are random characters that just appear out of no where and just as soon take off. I honestly can not tell you what happened in the movie or who any of the characters were.

I rented this movie like many other Tromas expecting it to be bad and expecting to enjoy that badness, but it is just not possible to receive any enjoyment out of this movie. If you are of the same mindset as me, I beg you to please spare yourself!
