Vinny is obsessed with famous actress Jana Bates and is determined to have her star in his movie. He travels to the Cannes Film Festival in France to try and convince her. Unfortunately, he goes about things in a rather unprofessional manner and people invloved with Jana Bates begin to disappear. Written by Josh Pasnak <>

Luke Walter was originally slated to play the cowboy in the film, but didn't do the role because director David Winters thought the New York City-born Walter couldn't do a Southern accent. Walter instead wound up playing a bodyguard in the movie. See more »

Joe Spinell why did you have to go??
20 April 2002 | by (stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

A very underrated master piece that i liked much more than, William Lustig´s Maniac, this is far off better not as brutal as the earlier mentioned Maniac, but has a much more interesting plot, the story in short is that Spinell thinks he´s a movie director, but he´s not, he becomes obsessed by the beautiful Caroline Munroe from the Spy who loved me, Spinell wants her in his movie (eventhough he hasn´t got a movie to put her in) I laughed a lot in this very sick study,of the mind of the deranged serial killer, played byJoe Spinell. It has a lot of strong violence, throat cutting stabbings and some strangulation. Watch out for Spinells real mother that plays the killers mother also. I gave it a 10 out of 10
