Eighteen years ago, prostitute Rose (Debbie Rochon) got knocked up by
one of her johns (Dan Ellis) - much to the dismay of her pimp Leroy
(Ronald Partick Thompson), who ultimately removed the fetus from her womb
with a coathanger. Much against anybody's expectations, the fetus survived
and was brought up by a bum.
Nowadays, the boy, called Hanger (Nathan
Dashwood) for simplicity's sake, lives a miserable life in the gutters
after been disfigured for life at "birth", when he's picked up
by his father, who gives him a home with perverted Russell (Wade Gibb) and
a job at a dumping ground where all sorts of misfits work. He also sees to
it that Hanger has his first sexual experience with a prostitute - but
Hanger isn't quite right in the head and brutally kills her. This is much
to the delight of his father, really, as he wants Hanger to have bloody
revenge on Leroy - who has if possible turned even more evil since pulling
Hanger out of Rose's body ...

Now Hanger is certainly not a movie for
everyone, it's loud, it's crass, it's gross, it doesn't shy away from
being ugly, it has its ultraviolent moments, and at times it feels
outright mean - but of course, one man's trash is another man's treasure,
and fans of the nastier side of the horror genre are destined to love this
one, thanks to its unapologetic attitude, its authentic grindhouse
approach, and its total lack of pretentiousness. In all, it's gruesome for
sure - just not for everyone ...
