Great film to watch drunk
14 September 2000 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

My friend showed this to me a few years ago, and I was floored. The anger filled still images that make up the first half of this film, accompanied by the hilarious sound track was one of the funniest things I have ever seen/heard. The second half was a little too cheap and jokey, but it doesn't really affect the first half which could (and should) be viewed as an entirely separate film. Lawrence Tierney was the perfect choice to play Red. He always looks like he's ready to kill someone and then have a heart attack. This is (Anthrax guitar player) Scott Ian's favorite film. So if you come across this one, pick it up, it will be worth it. And it will come in handy if you have a room full of drunks.
