Storyline

A rookie FBI agent, Jo Dee Foster (Billy Zane), has been assigned to work on the case of the Psycho Killer, a killer who has killed over 120 people. But to find out more about the Psycho Killer, Jo is forced to meet Dr. Animal Cannibal Pizza (Dom DeLuise), a famous doctor turned cannibal who ate pizzas with human body parts. Meanwhile, Jo's girlfriend, Jane Wine (Charlene Tilton), has just stolen $400,000 in cash from her money-hungry boss, Mr. Laurel (Rip Taylor), so she and Jo can be happy, but gets lost in a really horrible storm, caused mostly by a special effects crew behind her car, and stops at the Cemetery Motel, where the owner, Antonio Motel (Ezio Greggio), is dominated by his insane mother ('Shelly Winters').

Highly underrated
17 January 2001 | by (Linköping, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is possibly the best parody I've ever seen. I admit it's somewhat childish at times, but parodies shouldn't be serious.

This movie is full of details for which you have to see it many times to discover.

Before you see this movie, I recommend that you see Psycho and Silence of the lambs.
