wow such Negitive reviews. It wont win any oscars but for a hororr comedy its not half bad. But to enjoy this you really have to check logic in at the door as some scenes really push for logic esp. since the hero is quite chubby and suffers from his food playing up on him a lot. But its all done in a tucker vs dale kind of way and I found the gore amusing but sadly it ends badly and feels unfinshed like the director gave up. Good but not great.
Bad acting and bad storyline. Don't bother with this one.
Boring, dry and the protagonist switches between personalities too heavily to even be taken seriously.
You do not keep your inner monologue going if you're trying to build any sense of suspense for the viewer!
Gore, but certainly no horror makes this a cheap amateur venture into the absurd.
I'm normally very forgiving of horror films, particularly low-budget indie fright-flicks. But 'The Man Who Collected Food' was a major disappointment. The director clearly loves his Troma films but his very derivative approach manages to smother any spark of originality from the film - which is quite an achievement given the highly unusual subject matter. There is an energy to the film, but it's more akin to the manic irrationality that occurs when kids drink too much red cordial. The supporting characters are simply annoying ( particularly the alien-obsessed neighbour, gah) and for a horror-comedy, TMWCF gets the balance terribly wrong - lots of gore, zero laughs.
