Bonnie and Clyde. Mickey and Mallory. They’re kittens compared to Judge Taylor Limone and Clara Lovering. Who are the last couple? They are the main characters of the movie Scavenger Killers, which debuted at the Hoboken International Film Festival. Written by Ken Del Vecchio and Rachel Robbins and directed by Dylan Blank, Scavenger Killers boasts a powerful cast that includes Eric Roberts, Robert Loggia, Charles Durning, Dustin Diamond and Suzi Lorraine. It is also one of the most brutal movies put to the screen. How brutal? Find out after the jump.

Scavenger Killers is about Judge Taylor Limone (Robert Bogue) and Clara Lovering (Rachael Robbins), a couple who get their kicks from hacking people apart. How do they choose their victims? Clara pulls a personality out of a hat.

The highlight of the movie is Robert Bogue’s Judge Lamone. Bogue is Patrick Bateman amplified by a hundredfold.  He loves two things in life: himself and carving people with a chainsaw. (It’s questionable if he truly loves Clara) This guy’s ego is off the charts. Whether he’s killing people or fooling around with Clara he loves bragging about himself. At first you hate listening to him but as the movie goes on you start getting a kick out of him. A lot of the names in this movie play bit parts. Suzi Lorraine plays a “working girl” that makes a mean Hamburger Helper. Robert Loggia plays a doctor who runs a shady practice out of his house. Eric Roberts plays an FBI who is trying to track down the killers while Dustin Diamond plays his partner, a psychic with Tourette’s.

Scavenger Killers is not for the faint at heart. If you are the type that is offended by body parts being hacked off, extreme violence, sexual fetishes, and foul language this is a movie to avoid. If you like that stuff you’ll be in heaven.   Yes, there are flaws. There are times when there is too much set up for a kill and you say to yourself “get on with it.”  Also, Ken Del Vecchio’s Agent Truman, who is out to stop Taylor and Clara, is not likeable. You want the killers to kill him as opposed to him catching the killers. Finally, this is not a movie for people with weak stomachs. The killings in this movie are gruesome, so much so that even the most hardened horror fan might have trouble keeping their eyes on the screen for the entire duration.

Overall, if you’re a fan of movies like Hostel or the Saw franchise, Scavenger Killers is right up your alley. It makes those movies look like Disney.  If you’re into gruesome, horror movies with egomaniacal and sexy killers, Scavenger Killers is worth a look.
