Joe is an ugly loser, incapable of picking up women. But when he’s taught a magical power, capable of transforming him into anyone he pleases and then back to his normal self, he decides to use it to live out his perverse fantasies.

Initially content just watching them shower, Joe soon tires of mindless nudity and gears up to take his ultimate revenge against womankind: luring them to his shabby apartment, violently killing, and even eating them!


This starts out amusingly crude and fairly entertaining due to the ridiculous but truly off-the-wall premise but it starts running out of steam by the midway point once you realize they aren’t going to be taking full advantage of the good central idea […] This would have worked much better had they just gone all in on being tasteless instead.” The Bloody Pit of Horror

“Rhinotillex enthusiasts, I’m afraid, will whine endlessly about the overall level of on-screen nose-pickery; other than a few uncomfortable scratches during the first twenty minutes, there’s very little correlation between the movie and its slightly misleading moniker. That said, The Nostril Picker is ultimately a thoroughly engrossing little project despite being completely pointless.” The Film Fiend

“This is a zero-budgeter like never before. It’s like a home movie gone wrong. The picture quality is horrendous. There’s scratches and grain on every shot and it looks like it was bleached of any colour. I honestly refuse to believe that this was made in 1993 – it looks absolutely terrible.” Popcorn Pictures

“But this isn’t even one of those “So bad they’re good” flicks – it’s just plain bad. Seriously, watching retarded shit like this can’t be good for you. Nevertheless, it’s hard not to recommend a film with a title like The Nostril Picker. A rate seems pointless, but I give it one point for originality and one point for the title…” Rare Cult Cinema
