28 August 2001 | by (el segundo, ca.) – See all my reviews

Absolutely fantastic! This movie gives new meaning to staying up till 3 am, when is the only time it is ever aired. On my first screening I started knocking back doubles to simulate SLITHIS' point of view, and it worked. I'll never see Venice Beach the same again. A true classic, I recommend it to anyone planning a lost weekend at the beach!
