A mentally disturbed car mechanic becomes convinced that if he eats enough human eyeballs he will develop the ability to see into the future, so when customers bring their cars into his repair shop, he eats their eyeballs…


Auto Shop of Horrors is a film filled with eccentric qualities, thoroughly entertaining and humorous setups, and a compelling central performance to top it all off. Its monotony does render it a bit of a trying watch, but I’m almost certain its target audience won’t mind.” Steve Pulaski

 …basically a single sequence of events—a customer shows up at Randy’s shop, Randy tells them about the Aztecs, Randy tortures and kills them and eats their eyes, and Randy disposes of the body—repeated ad nauseam. And in this case, “ad nauseam” should be read literally. There is nothing clever, interesting, or motivated in the way that the film just keeps repeating itself…”

“The plot is really far-fetched and silly (and knows it), the dialogue’s unrealistic yet hilariously (and intentionally) so, the use of music (especially pop tunes) comes across as forced (again, hilariously so) […] Plus, the gore effects are mostly of a practical nature and in a grotesque rather than gruesome way, which wildly adds to the fun.” Mike Haberfelner, Search My Trash
