Kill me...quick
3 November 2009 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Homeless musician Kaz (Scott Valentine of FAMILY TIES "Ayyyyyyeee" fame) is unfortunate enough to have a curse that causes him to turn into a demon any time he gets aroused. This obviously hurts his budding relationship with equally odd named Denny (Michelle Little) and makes him the no. 1 suspect in some NYC slashing deaths. So this is how you spend your ELM STREET profits, Mr. Shaye? I thought this was a dog back in '87 and guess what? It still is. Neither funny or scary, about the only thing going for this film is a supporting role by Robert Trebor as a goofy guy. Director Charlie Loventhal was one of the co-writers on De Palma's HOME MOVIES (1980) and I'm gathering he never made it onto the set to observe how to make a flick. To the film's credit, it has some great FX work going on here and the catchy theme "Let Go" by Intimate Strangers (which also appeared in the previous year's NIGHT OF THE CREEPS).
