review by
Mike Haberfelner

Sam (Steve Marvel) and Deborah's marriage (Julie Dolan) has definitely seen better days, so when he gets a (believable) message from a stranger, Jackson (Christy St. John), that she's his daughter from a previous relationship, he's quick to agreeing to meet her, just to get out of the house for one. Their meeting though is kind of awkward - until, at some distance, they see a man (Reggie Koffman) opening his mouth really wide to swallow up a little girl, whole. Both Sam and Jackson make separate quick getaways, and under normal circumstances, that should be the end of their reunion - only Jackson has been followed by the man, Chompy, and since Sam is the only one who'd believe her, she turns to him for help ... much to the dismay of Deborah, who's kind of caught on the wrong foot by the information that her husband has a daughter. Sam and Jackson make it to Lotus (Hari Williams), a black magician Jackson happens to know, but somehow he gets roofied and is of little help. Then they happen upon the little girl, Birch (Seneca Paliotta), whom they saw swallowed, and take her in - with the effect that Sam is suddenly graced with a baby foot. However, Chompy has soon caught up with them, corners them, and eventually, they see no other option than to jump into his mouth - and once they're inside, Chompy (voiced by Udo Kier) explains to them what's the real story with him and Birch, and that he's actually on their side, then he releases them again, and with his help, Sam and Jackson could set things right again - only then Deborah arrives on the scene in her car and runs over Chompy, killing him in the process. And this is when shit hits the fan ...

 

Chompy and the Girls is quite a unique experience, basically because it manages to capture an anything-goes concept with touches of surrealism and absurdism, but packs it all in a well-structured story that might be fittingly low on explanations but high on narrative structure, and that manages for horror and comedy to co-exist on a non-moronic and non-gross-out level. And fun effects work coupled with a directorial effort subtle enough to not divert from the story, and grounded performances that manage to make the film relatable really help making this one piece of very enjoyable weirdness.
