Hi, Vinny. You're home early. What's wrong? Are you sick?
I'm fine. Couldn't be better. I'm home early because I just got my round-trip plane ticket. I'm leaving tomorrow for Europe. I'm going to the south of France for the Cannes Film Festival, Ma!

Vinny, stop talking about those crazy ideas of yours. I made baked macaroni. You don't eat right. You need more proten so you wouldn't have to think of those crazy ideas.
I don't know why you think my ideas...

I had put off seeing this for a long time because, although an admirer of Joe Spinell and Caroline Munro, I am NOT a fan of gore. When the only video store in my area with a copy told me they would be closing, I finally gave in and rented it, knowing it may very well be my last chance. I was pleasantly surprised to see how little gore there was (and what WAS there was either too brief to really disturb me, or was obviously "movie-within-movie" fake), and by the cleverness of the script. The brilliant performance by Joe Spinell, however, came as no surprise. Playing an obsessed fan and would-be director, Spinell was both pathetic and sympathetic. I found myself feeling sorry for this desperate loser, even as I dreaded what he might do.
The Cannes Film Festival setting makes this a must-see for movie buffs, who will enjoy going frame-by-frame through the montages of movie posters and marquees.
