Unholy ‘Mole (2019)

Director David Bornstein needs to be locked up. He needs to go somewhere he can never hurt anyone…I still want him to make movies…oh how I want him to continue to make movies.. I just want someone this sick and twisted to go somewhere safe…

The reason I’m saying this is that Bornstein is back at it after A King's Betrayal, which was about the life of a piñata from the piñata’s POV, with Unholy ‘Mole, which is the story of a man who really really wants his wife to make him some guacamole and the steps he takes to have her do it.

I was deeply disturbed by this film. I mean what happens could be in the dictionary under the term wrong. Clearly Bornstein knows no boundaries, and if you need proof consider that even as I was feeling bothered I was laughing uncontrollably. Yes, Bornstein once again is working in the sweet spot where laughter meets horror and we are better for it.

This is a grand jewel of a film. As if Bornstein’s previous films weren’t enough of a calling card this film should put him on the radar of someone who has money for a feature film. And based on what we see here, with killer effects, great performances, an awesome script  and perfect unrecognizable vocal work by Ray Wise, the thought of giving Bornstein a feature budget could be a good thing.

But I am digressing….

Soon to hit the festival circuit, where I am certain it will be a big hit, Holy ‘Mole is must see for anyone who likes horror or has a love of twisted humor. I can’t recommend it enough. It is one of the very best films of any length I've seen in 2019.
