10 Most Notorious Uwe Boll Films

10. Seed

Vivendi Entertainment

Max Seed is one of those huge, brutal, unstoppable killers you see in dime-a-dozen slashers, but Boll isn’t interested in making that kind of picture – he’s making a “serious” movie about man’s inhumanity to man (or something).

The results are often unintentionally funny. After going to the chair for 666 murders, Seed digs his way out of his grave and, despite an unfortunate resemblance to Leatherface, manages to wander around Vancouver without being seen. In the opening moments, the character is introduced to the viewer watching real footage of animal abuse that an onscreen caption explains is intended to make a statement about humanity.

One of the most bizarre scenes is a dream sequence where Detective Matt Bishop (Michael Pare, a Boll regular) finds himself riding on a bus with the masked killer - in broad daylight, no less. Despite his appearance, Seed is playing with the child of a fellow passenger who ignores Bishop’s warnings until – and this is where most audience members walk out – Seed smashes the child’s head against a handrail.
