Dear God No! (2011)


Director: James Bickert
Starring: Jett Bryant, Madeline Brumby, Paul McComiskey, Johnny Collins, Nick Morgan
Not rated, 81 minutes

DEAR GOD NO! is yet another low budget, shot-on-video trash flick that attempts to replicate the alleged "grindhouse" pictures of the late 60's and early 70's. After a strip club massacre in which they do battle with a rival bike club, the Impalers gang head out to the country to hide from the cops and to continue their rape and murder spree. They eat magic mushrooms and decide to invade the home of a wealthy anthropologist and his daughter. What they soon discover is the "anthropologist" is a little more of a mad scientist and that a bloodthirsty Sasquatch-like creature is roaming the grounds around the house.

While the film certainly pays homage to the biker/drug movies of the past, its main intention seems to be as outrageous and offensive as possible. DEAR GOD NO! takes a kitchen sink approach and includes as many gross-out gags, boobs, and gory carnage as it can fit in its running time, like a Troma film without the production values. It's mostly amusing until the halfway point when director James Bickert incorporates a very mean-spirited and vile rape scene that feels as if it belongs in a different movie. And it just gets worse from there. It's dumb, gross, occasionally funny, but never boring. Recommended for fans of extreme bad taste cinema, and that's about it.

Bickert returned in 2016 with FRANKENSTEIN CREATED BIKERS, featuring much of the same cast and covering the same thematic ground. 

2.5 out of 5.
