Talk about out-of-left-field. This omnibus of strange and harrowing stories connected by vagabond characters at various levels of moral bankruptcy revolves around the same KFC location.
A sick doctor and his twisted cohorts attack random people and ultimately cannibalize them. The doctor’s own rotund young son has grown accustomed to the taste of human flesh and gleefully tries to share it with street kids, who have already run afoul of an assortment of evil creeps. 'Bizarre' would be an understatement for this out-of-control orgy of revenge, featuring cryptic dialogue and plastic, almost detached depictions of deliberate torment and the squashy sucking, splattering and dull thudding of abused flesh.
Debut filmmaker Lê Bình Giang takes the body-horror genre to new heights, combining an ethereal ennui and anomie with raw, visceral savagery.
Not for the faint-hearted.
LÊ Bình Giang (1990, Vietnam) was educated in Film at the University of Ho Chi Minh, but he wasn’t allowed to graduate because the script for his film Kfc was considered too violent by the Council of Examiners. Lê didn't give up on his project and tried to find sponsors. He won the Film of the Future Award at the Vietnamese Autumn Meeting 2013, which helped him get started. After making several short films he finally made Kfc (2016), his feature film debut, three years later.
