Society (1989) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The rich eat the poor

Warning: Spoilers

I remember watching this film in the early 90’s while I was well underage of the certification and it stuck with me, occasionally having nightmares about people being pulled inside out. I’ve watched it many times since and still love the film although I don’t have those childish nightmares nowadays.

Billy Warlock plays Billy Whitney, a product of the social elite in upper-class Beverley Hills, America. People have been treating him like crap his whole life, like he’s not part of the “in-crowd”, he slowly starts to get suspicious that not everything is as it seems. Sit back and watch far out 80’s horror which despite the visual assault delivers a firm message about class differences which is as relevant today as it was when the film was made. OK, so the acting is a little ham at times, and maybe the OTT gore looks a little dated now but this film still packs a punch and stands out as one of the more random but cult films of the 80’s. Incest, cannibalism, comedy, sexual perversions, gore, horror, and shoulderpads. This is a great film, I definitely recommend this if you haven’t seen it and like your films nutter than a peanut butter sandwich sprinkled with hazelnuts. Enjoy.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (8/10)
