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
The picture of Ron Perlman that Max and Tiger shows to people when they are looking for him, is from 1990, when Perlman acted in "Self Storage". See more »

Ted! Are you home? Ted! Are you there Ted? It's Max and Tiger on the prowl. Ya home? You out drinking, you waste product? What, are you screening your calls? Ted. Ted. Ted!
No wait, hold it! Hold it! Hold it! One more. Just. Just. Just stay.

I went into this hoping for a dark comedy. What I got was a very unfunny, unfocused, mess of a movie. "Tinseltown" was originally written as a play, and unfortunately it shows. The film is very claustrophobic, with long boring dialogs throughout. The bickering in front of the police station was squirm inducing. Ron Perlman does the best job early on, as the menacing pseudo manager of a storage facility that is home to a bunch of quirky "street people". The movie never takes off, and fails to impress as "black comedy". The idea of featuring a serial kill in your film sounds a lot better in print, than it translates to the screen. A disappointment. - MERK
