Le Bagman is about a new killer who enters town. Of course, he's called Bagman. And this is because he wears a bag on his head. When he's confronted by about 20 or so wanna-be gangstas, you can't help but cheer on every brutal, disgusting kill. This film is only 20 minutes, and at least 25 people die in this movie, but it never seems redundant or tedious. With every kill, this film seems to out-do itself. You start thinking to yourself by the 5th death, that there's no way they can possibly think of another new and clever, sick, disgusting way of killing somebody. But guess what? They do. All the way up to the very end.
This film is shot mostly outside during the day, so there's not really any proof that anybody on the crew knows anything decent about lighting. But they sure know editing, timing and what angles to shoot to achieve this. And most importantly, they know horror and they especially know gore. Maybe better than anybody else their age working in the horror genre. This was made by a group of young French-Canadian kids, so this film is mostly spoken in French. The sexiest language in the world with some of the bloodiest and most original death scenes captured in a horror short film. If you have the stomach for it, make sure you see this film. And if you catch the filmmakers at a festival, make sure you get your own copy.
Enjoy the imaginative amateurishness (is that a real word?).
I won't refuse a big fat cigar :-)
