Sociopathia DVD Review
“Sociopathia” is dead on arrival.
“Sociopathia” is a virtually plotless horror film about an introverted bisexual movie prop maker who moonlights as a serial killer (Mara) that keeps a few corpses as dolls. Mara meets a producer (Kat) who hires her for a film project and the two eventually become romantically involved. Of course, the relationship is doomed for failure given that Mara is a psycho. That’s basically the movie in a nutshell.
“Sociopathia” is a bit like the movie “May” only nowhere near as interesting, accomplished, or, you know, good. The film plays a cheap no budget exploitive horror film that thrives on sex, nudity, and gore and not much else. There are no scares, there’s barely a story (even though it tries to be a character study), the film isn’t remotely visual (unless you like your movies filmed in basements and crappy rooms) and it also happens to feature some truly embarrassing amateur acting. It’s like the filmmakers cast their own neighbors it’s that bad. The only legitimate performance here comes from Asta Paredes (Kat) who seems to be the only professional actor of the lot.
Presentation: 1.78:1. How does it look? The transfer is pretty mediocre thanks to the largely dark and murky cinematography.
Audio Track: 5.1 Surround. How does it sound? To be honest, this track is pretty dreadful. The dialogue is poorly recorded and background noise is audible. The music tries to cover up the poor sound quality at times but it doesn’t help.
* “Sociopathia” trailer.
* A still gallery.
* The option to play A b&W director’s cut version of the film.
* 7 minutes of deleted scenes.
Overall Thoughts: Unless you like bad trashy horror movies, skip this one.
