Storyline

The deal is simple. Buy the stolen drugs for almost nothing, sell them and make a bundle. For Ray and the others, it's the deal of their lives. For Heather, the rich girl, it's a ride on the wild side. Deep in the dark, abandoned warehouse, Speed, the dealer, counts the money. Outside, a black Mercedes pulls up...five killers step out. They want their drugs back and they don't want witnesses. Trapped in the warehouse, the horror begins. Written by Anonymous

Crazy Credits

If, on the small chance your name is Heather and you hang out with bikers and one day you stumbled into a warehouse where a mob hit was taking place, and one by one your friends were hunted down until you and a naked guy were left, and your boyfriend was dangling on a rope, and the only way to kill the killer was to become one yourself...Well, talk to your lawyer. You might have a case." See more »

As terrible as a film can get
10 August 2000 | by (la) – See all my reviews

I have a rule when it comes to renting straight-to-video films and it's very simple: I don't rent anything that has cover that is a rip-off of the movie Swingers, I don't rent anything that has a cover of some hacky actor holding a gun (Judge Rienhold, John Stamos, etc.), and I don't rent any film that has the quote "If you like Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs, you'll love this." The latter applied to this film. So why did I rent it? I don't know. I'm still knocking myself in the head for it. I should be fined or something.

This film has everything bad that there can be bad in a movie. It's got really bad acting, a script that will having cringing, laced with just plain stupid dialog ("You idiot.snapping is hurt, pointing means kill.") and direction that completely takes away from the film. Whereas someone like Martin Scorsese uses the camera like a paintbrush on a canvas, this director uses the camera like fingers on a chalk board. There are numerous quick cuts and rapid repeating shots that do nothing than remind the viewer that they are watching a bad movie. These little tactics aren't clever, they're not artsy and they do nothing to enhance the movie. They are simply annoying.

A group of thugs, who look more like a crappy rock band than they do drug dealers, meet at a warehouse to score a drug deal. Another group of thugs come to the warehouse to apparently get the drugs the first crappy group has and to kill them off. By the time this happens, the movie is so unbearable, you spend most of your time fast forwarding. There isn't an actor in the bunch and the worst one of all, is the cliched pony tail tough guy with the constant scowl on his face. This guy is supposed to be the "mean" thug with no conscious, the consummate killer. The only thing this guy killed in a believable manner, was my will to finish watching this stupid film.

I'd like to say there was something good, like cinematography or sets, or something, but I can't find a single positive thing to say about this trash. Even the DVD itself was awful. If anyone can tell me how to manoeuver through their confusing menu, I'd appreciate it. I actually wasted ten, fifteen minutes trying to pick up where I left off in the film, while going to eat (or puke maybe) and the menu was put together so poorly, it makes me hate this film more. I can only hope that everyone involved with this garbage never, ever, ever works on any film ever again. Not as an actor or writer; not a the food delivery person, not as a video store clerk! They should all be banned.
