Verdict on Megalomaniac
Megalomaniac is a horror movie following the life of potential serial killers that terrorised Belgium. It follows the disturbing life Martha lives and what she puts her victims through. All while trying to keep her personal life away from the rest of the world.
This is a disturbing movie that takes us down a twisted path. It is filled with disturbing visuals that take us into the mind of someone and what can break them. This ends up being bloody, disgusting and difficult to watch. There is an uncomfortable level of violence that doesn’t seem to go anywhere. This is not for the faint of heart and by the end, you will need to walk away and think about what you have been through.
Final Thoughts – Megalomaniac is an uncomfortable disturbing and bloody movie.
