Born Bad


  • US TV Version
  • Unrated
Release: Jun 15, 2012 - Author: Buster - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
The US company The Asylum is renowned for its regular releases of low budget productions that are a bold rip-off of current blockbusters of the majors in Hollywood. Unfortunately, the low budget is very obvious in any of those movies.

With Born Bad, a movie which isn't a current blockbuster rip-off was released in 2011. But then again there are lots of similarities to the home invasion thriller Fear starring Mark Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon, released in 1996.

The movie is about a young naive girl living with her dad and her stepmom after her parents got divorced. After a short while, she gets to know the perfect son-in-law who turns out to be a psycho killer. All warnings from her family are being ignored until the final confrontation: the intrusion of the family's house including taking hostages. Along with a nymphomaniac girlfriend and annoying brother, this description fits perfectly for Born Bad as well.

Brooke, her stepbrother Kyle and her dad Walter Duncan are tied up in the garage. Denny and Frankie are out to search for Katherine, Jose remains in the kitchen. He's so excited, he can't stand it anymore and decides to go to the garage. He grabes a kitchen knife on his way over there. Because he believes Denny was still outside, he starts getting busy with Brooke. To get to her boobs and between her legs, he cuts the ducktape she was tied up with. Brooke gives it a shot and pushes Jose away. In the Unrated Version, the scene ends with Jose attacking her while she's holding up the knife. Looks like it didn't go very well for him because Brooke subsequently steps over his body ans goes back into the house.

The TV Version on the other hand contains a dramatic fight.
Brooke loses the knife because of Jose and she hits him in the face with a plastic can. Kyle reaches for the knife and starts cutting his bonds. Jose has the upper hand now but before he can do anything to Brooke, Kyle stabs him in the back. Kyle is shocked about it that he's careless for a second. Jose can take him down. Jose goes after Brooke again and hits her like hell but he doesn't realize that Kyle could free Walter in the meantime. Walter attacks Jose and can stab him in the stomach. But Jose is one tough SOB and pushes Walter in the corner. He also manages to stab Walter in the shoulder before he dies of his injuries.
