Storyline

Two down-and-out Hollywood screenwriters living together in a self-storage facility suspect that the man who rents space next to them is the infamous Costume Killer--a serial murderer who stalks the streets of Los Angeles decked out in ridiculous rented outfits. Using their neighbor's misdeeds for inspiration, the two friends desperately try to write a hit screenplay... at any cost. Written by rottentomatoes.com

AN "interesting" movie!
9 November 2000 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Not one for the faint hearted this is a stand alone film which refuses to fit into any category. It manages to switch constantly between humour, drama, pathos and sheer silliness. It is to the credit of the two main actors,Arye Gross and Tom Wood (alive again after being killed off in US Marshalls) that the film does not descend into complete banality. Woods endearing innocence contrasts well with Gross' futile attempts at bravado, and Joe Pantoliano is good as the seedy producer on the make. If you want something different, buy this one.
