A mentally ill auto mechanic becomes convinced that if he eats enough human eyeballs, he’ll develop the ability to see into the future, so when customers bring their cars to his repair shop, he eats their eyeballs…
“Auto Shop of Horrors is a movie filled with quirky goodness, thoroughly entertaining and humorous setups, and a compelling central performance to top it all off. Its monotony makes it a bit of a taxing watch, but I’m pretty sure its target audience won’t care. Steve Pulaski
“ …essentially a single sequence of events – a customer shows up at Randy’s shop, Randy tells them about the Aztecs, Randy tortures them and kills them and eats their eyes, and Randy disposes of the body – repeated until nauseated. And in this case, “ad nauseam” should be read literally. There’s nothing clever or interesting or purposeful about the way the movie keeps repeating itself…” horror news
“The plot is really wacky and silly (and knows it), the dialogue is unrealistic but hilarious (and on purpose) so the use of music (especially pop tunes) comes across as forced (again, hilarious) […] Plus, the gore effects are mostly practical in nature and in a way that’s grotesque rather than gruesome, which adds hugely to the fun.
