Butt Boy: Movie Review

On its title alone, you know "Butt Boy" is going to be an outrageous experience. While it is pretty rough around the edges, its last half hour was a delightful turnaround.
Chip Gutchel (Tyler Cornack) has an awakening after a routine prostate exam. What starts as a harmless rectal kink, soon grows into a deadly addiction. Chip eventually buries his desires in Alcoholics Anonymous and tries to move on with his life. Years later, he becomes the sponsor of Russell Fox (Tyler Rice), a newly sober detective. After Chip relapses, Russell is brought in to investigate another missing child at Chip’s office. Russell begins to suspect that Chip maybe the culprit. Russell has to prove that Chip uses his butt to make people disappear. But who’s going to believe his wild theory?
We thought "Butt Boy" was going to be a mix of dark humor and fantasy but we were completely wrong. Surprisingly, the film takes its out-of-the-box premise pretty seriously. While there are hints of comedic puns about butts, the film was a no-frills thriller-drama at its core. We have to commend the commitment at least and that commitment pays off in the latter portion of the film. It's going to surprise and entertain. The film also had good visuals and cinematography although its independent budget showed its limitations in some scenes. Where the film really suffers is in the acting. To be blunt, it was so-so and the vast majority of the actors had the tendency to miserably overact. Overall though, "Butt Boy" does enough to be at least intriguing. It won't explain everything but did you really expect a full comprehensive explanation from a film featuring a serial killer using his butt to kill?
