MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

Verdict – 3/5

Pros –
1) Premise: Tarantino Universe

3) Titty Twister Mexican rock party.
4) The final scene with the Aztec temple
5) Black-comedy: Its sense of humor is heavily influenced by Evil Dead.

 

Cons –
1) The movie progresses as a regular crime film for the first half and out of nowhere it became a B-Grade slasher Grind-house extravaganza.
