After getting interested in murder as a kid in Colombia, Gabriela now has a scrapbook on murders including clippings on "The Blue Blood Killer". While cleaning his latest murder scene in Miami, she comes across a clue missed by the cops.
The Bride must kill her ex-boss and lover Bill who betrayed her at her wedding ceremony, shot her in the head and took away her unborn daughter. But first, she must make the other four members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad suffer.
In Detroit, a lonely pop culture geek marries a call girl, steals cocaine from her pimp, and tries to sell it in Hollywood. Meanwhile, the owners of the cocaine, the Mob, track them down in an attempt to reclaim it.
Gabriella, a Colombian immigrant, is obsessed with understanding violent crime. The current string of murders by "The Blue Blood Killer" of affluent Miami socialites provides her with fodder for her scrapbook of death. She lands a job with a post-murder cleaning service and during a Blue-Blood clean-up job, discovers evidence that police have overlooked.Written by

This movie has three connections to Quentin Tarantino. 1. references From Dusk Till Dawn which he wrote and co-starred 2. it was done by his production company and 3. the star of this movie Angela Jones played the cab driver in his Oscar winning independent film pulp fiction, that helps butch make his getaway and who is morbidly fascinated by killing a man Esmerelda Villalobos.

Early in the movie, one of Paul's victims writes his name on a tile floor just before she dies. The penmanship changes from shaky and faint, to steady and thick. See more »
SPOILER At the very end of the credits, after the copyright notice, there is a scene showing Gabriela driving a car, with Eduardo, playing the tape she recorded with Paul's voice saying her name after his death. See more »
Originally, the film ended with a slow motion shot of geese flying south as the main character did a voice over but director Reb Braddock decided to save that for his next film, "When fun goes south with the geese." See more »
Latin music, chewing gum and a glimpse of Tarantino - nice!
It's surprisingly hard to make fun about serious subjects, like murder. Curdled succeeds in it: it's a hilarious film about a girl obsessed with murder, with a nicely twisted vision of the world. Yes, it has it's faults, but there are some irresistibly funny moments in it as well.
Jones does an excellent job in this black comedy, it really is a shame we haven't heard more of her. Even Baldwin fits in his role! The soundtrack is spicy and quite excellent. Braddock has extended this from a short film, and unfortunately it shows in some places. A few scenes feel, well, boring, and dialogue isn't as sharp as it could be.
Tarantino is often linked to this film, although he was only the producer and wrote a very little piece of script. However, there are connections to his movies in Curdled and they are fun to catch.
My score: 3/5
