review by
Mike Haberfelner

Les (Brant McCrea), a vigilante also known as The Ghoul, has spent the last ten years in prison for killing a cop (Matthew W. Miles) - true, it was a very violent cop of the torture-your-suspects variety, but a cop still ... but now he's out, and everyone seems after him to kill him, from the deceased cop's partner Dave (Dave Cartwright) to the hitmen of Elion (Jonez Jones), the very man who has killed his family and in the process "taken his soul" - or so Les thinks. Les, it has to be said here, is an almost unstoppable killing machine, and he has no problems killing Elion's henchmen while he somehow drags Dave onto his side, and there's only one human who means something to him, Alex (Shira Barber), who wants him to give everything up, skip town and for the two of them to lead a normal life. But Les is a man on a mission, and he doesn't waver - even if he leaves this level of reality for the netherworld in the process ...


Chicago Rot is a rather unique experience to be sure. While it starts as a rather violent serialkiller movie with a predilection for skinnings, and with elements of gangster and cop and even superhero movies thrown into the mix, it by the by leaves the world as we know it (from experiences, film and TV) behind for another plane of existence, and thus becomes more and more over-the-top in a comicbook sort of way in the process, but without any irony - which makes this movie so fascinating. Plus, one just has to love the cast of characters of this movie that refuse to be black or white and are all the more interesting for it, and are portrayed by a very able ensemble.

Well worth a look!
