A band of misfits get together and find a drummer to put together a musical group. Infants die, fat women have their wigs ripped off and are fucked by upside down manic guitarists, and the end sees a random shootout. It was sold as a Man Bites Dog-like black comedy, but there’s little funny here worth sticking around for. A loveless, rambling, incoherent and offensive film, with little in the end to recommend to even the most ardent genre fan. Alas, even the music is pretty shit, so you can’t even count on that to get you through the drudgery. Skip it.
Ex Drummer is a mess of a film, a tawdry, bizarre tale that has enough visual style to set it apart, barely, from being a complete waste of several hours of your life.
