Storyline

In the seedy part of Los Angeles, a man who writes poetry has spent six months without leaving his apartment because of his paranoid delusions involving sadistic doctors, rappers, and spiders. A woman who seems to jinx things by wanting to help is dumped by her boyfriend and finds herself penniless on the streets, and soon runs afoul of a local gang. Due to a telephone glitch, the man calls her at a phone booth trying to dial a "talk line" and invites her to his place. There they must help each other to overcome their respective problems.

A great romantic comedy
19 January 2002 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Lunatics: A Love Story is simply a great romantic comedy. Ted Raimi is funny as his role as a psychopathic man who thinks about spiders eating his brains, suicide, sadistic doctors, and rappers. Another thing that made this movie simply the best was Bruce Campbell. He can make a movie ten times much better.

10/10
