Product Overview

Hip-hop meets horror in this wildly unpredictable urban tale directed by Kamal Ahmed (Jerky Boys). An up-and-coming white rapper Rapturious (Robert Oppel) tempers his music career and a shady past with a steady dose of mind altering drugs. But when his dealer gives him "something special," the blond dreadlocked singer soon has a series of murderous hallucinations. Are they really tricks of the mind or is Rapturious really committing these blood-splattered crimes? With a wicked supporting cast including horror film maven Debbie Rochon and Joe Bob Briggs, this slick and stylistic urban tale twists and turns until the demonic truths are uncovered!

ReviewSource IFC Quarterly Review
Review Featuring a convincing lead performance by Oppel, Rapturious also boasts a cast of such talents as horror movie icon Debbie Rochon as the rapper's manager, Cinque Lee as a local music journalist, Joe Bob Briggs as a psychologist investigating Rapturious' case as well as Ahmed himself in a brief cameo as a taxi driver unsure of which accent to commit to. While the film contains shades of explicit, slasher-like horror, it works more effectively as a supernatural thriller as the majority of violence occurs not in the real world but within Rapturious' own tortured psyche...With an opening sequence out of an old Western movie juxtaposed against an urban, New York sprawl, Rapturious is an interesting melange of both hip-hop and horror. Directed with a steady hand and featuring performances that you remember once it's over, Rapturious is an enjoyable horror film for those fans who like their movies a little off-kilter. With both this film and his previous directorial efforts behind him, Kamal is steadily shedding his Jerky Boy image and starting to step up to the plate in making films that are both entertaining and jarring to the viewer.
