Sella Turcica (2010)
Movie Review by The Spastic Cannibal
02.03.11

Sella Turcica (2010) "Sella Turcica" is Toe Tag Inc.'s latest release and probably their best film to date. Still however, like the rest of their catalog, it leaves a lot to be desired.

Obviously, Fred Vogel and his crew were hoping to pass this film off as a much more mature and 'dramatic' effort than their prior fake snuff/gore style that has earned them total cult status among a fraction of the horror "underground". After that bland mess "Maskhead", I can appreciate Vogel delving into something like "Sella Turcica" and, for the most part, I found it to be a passable exercise in more character driven type of ultra-indie film making...

A young Sergeant is returning home from the war after being crippled from the waist down. His family and friends welcome him warmly, though something is not quite the same about him. Aside from presenting a sickly complexion and a drastic change in behavior, he experiences severe headaches brought on by certain sounds. When asked what happened to cause his immobility and illness, he says he can only remember a bright flash... His misery and family's confusion only increases as his bizarre symptoms begin transforming him into a raving lunatic.

Being Toe Tag's most 'subdued' film, "Sella Turcica" may not appeal to regular fans of "August Underground" or "Murder Collection", though considering how I've never been completely floored by their past efforts, I found it interesting how they provided more build-up this time around. However, much of the movie is incredibly drawn out and annoying - such as the insistent focus on an inter-racial couple on the 'outs' (this seemed both liberal and PC minded as well as blatantly racist at the same time), pointless stories involving a smoking monkey, and Camille Keaton's piss-poor excuse for acting... She's got the name recognition, though it was painful listening to her trying to recite lines. The last ten minutes of "Sella Turcica" are when things get really gory and intense.

Vogel has been changing his pace every so often with shit like "Redsin Tower" and "Sella Turcica" which is a smart move, but I have yet to see a film under his name that has really struck me as something immensely "good". Still, if you're a fan of the Toe Tag 'brand' of indie "shock" horror, you will surely get into this flick...
