Produced and directed by Russian Alex Wesley but originally distributed by David Sterling and the Legless Corpse Films along with Shans Horror Films  were two Collections of Short films from director Alex Wesley one of these being this trilogy of Bloody Guts From 2015 but the short films making it up are from 2003, 2004 and 2009.

The first of which is called Guts Outside where two men apparently hired muscle of sorts Sullik and Vova Gavrillov… are awaiting a man in his home there to get money from what I assume owed or just because he has some money… the man has a suitcase… this man is a serial killer named Elmer, born with a disease called Open Cranium…

Apparently he kills people when wind blows on his open brain but also to feed his brother who was born without skin…

In anycase The two Sullik and Vova intend on beating the shit out of the man and even though get a beating of their own take the suitcase… out of which something horrible I believe came out of it and Soon a man in a gas mask begins to mutilate and gut each of the men including the help that Volva made a call to to help save himself…

The Second Short film is Guts Outside 2 in this film a woman seen to be walking in the woods with flashbacks from the previous films gore… as we see her stabbed blood dripping from her coat…

Next we see Elmer sleeping a voice telling him to wake up to kill Sabina… we see him rowing in a boat so he must have to travel some distance… Meanwhile a young  girl is listening to a radio broadcast I’m assuming of a murder spree… we see an axe covered in blood the girl picks it up in between shots of a man apparently telling himself how to kill this girl/ woman calling her names and that he should… as we see images of an armless and legless corpse while still images of another corpse laying next to Elmer suggestive of Necrophelia (sex with the dead.) only his work isn’t done and told to kill a guy you has sex with pigs splaying his guts on the outside of his body…. and this man eats his own spillage…

Not only that but the left over guts he feeds to his brother whom looks like he has tumors for a face… as the film progresses the mutilation and scraping of meat from a skull to feed a member of a his family is very visual…. along with the cutting out of a tongue and stitching an open wound of his own guts…

Also hear a young man describe raping a cow…. plus the telling of being UFO experts arriving at a crash site where the team had found a female alien with 27 cunts and 14 anuses one of the team named Taras raped the female Alien and made claims to having the best orgasm he ever had… an orgasm not of this earth… and that she turned Elmer into what he is the living dead… she hates perverts…

In the third short film Zombies Eat My Guts we are shown images of a factory in black and white… looking to be abandoned… as we see a s slightly decayed still meaty corpse… as a young man in glasses, with a suitcase steps down into a basement, puts on a lab coat of sorts, some gloves…

As it would seem there is a cadaver on the table in the room.  Dr. Bruno as we learn has a virus in a canister about to unleash… or it would seem but a crew lights flame to the room…

Dr. Bruno then becomes the contagion as his skin begins to rot… the contagion spreads… drops into the apartment below… as other tennents begin to rot as well… but not just rotting is happening mutation for a man’s tongue was enlarged then choked him to death…

Still another man shit what looked like his dick attached to his large intestine out in a toilet then ate it… with one survivor who donned a gas mask and ran from the living dead turned freinds of his carrying weapons… only to find out it’s the burning of the corpse with the virus that started the death of everyone…

My thoughts on the three short films is that Fulci was definitely a main influence in Alex’s world of gore… in the first short the beginning of the film was some what mediocre but the effects of the blood and the guts got more graphic and real like but there were moments you could tell it was fake…

Not even sure if I liked this trilogy but I will say the second short film was definitely more gorey and a little comical with the outlandish female alien story.

With the Russian language there is a lot of broken English so what little speech there was… was understandable. There were certainly moments of slowness especially in the third short film.

As far as the gore enthusiast is concerned there is definitely enough of gut spilling and killing that meets the eye of the Splatter generation. To me it just fascinates me to what lengths a film maker will go to shock you and what I described there is a lot of disgustingness as well… it was entertaining I’ll say that…
