In between the Pirates of the Caribbean stolen score that appears every so often, the result is a quite tragic piece of film making. Had I known what they were saying, I might have been able to simply dismiss this film as useless but my curiosity overwhelmed me to such a degree, that simply shutting this off wouldn't have sufficed. Remember the infamous turtle evisceration scene in Cannibal Holocaust? Well, Kon Kin Plead 3 is an extended and lost in translation version of that extended to a mind-numbing length of 50 minutes.
According to my sources, Kon Kin Plead is a reality show of sorts. One that involves Thai reporters traveling to film their neighbors - the Cambodians - indulge in exotic treats of various forest critters. I'd like to get this out of the way. I love animals. I respect all phylum's and all shapes. Unlike a 16 year old girl and her fear of spiders, I respect all life to a degree. Fear should only be used as a tool of utmost respect anyhow. Watching such widely despised creatures like tarantulas and snakes getting devoured, sometimes while alive, is horridly upsetting to both your principles and your digestive system.
I believe I read this film being called a "Crazy Critter Cuisine" somewhere on this wonderful wide web. All this blood-draining is getting to me. It's not that I'm queasy, it's the fact that this film is useless. I may not know what they're saying and that these events are directed towards realism, but the "Arterial spray sound effect" needn't be applied to the throat slitting of a serpent. That's down right low, even for a wannabe mondo film. Kon Kin Plead 3 might have been a culturally fascinating, albeit graphic documentary, had I been reassured that there was a point behind all this savagery.
