Excellent!
18 May 2005 | by (Austin,Tx.) – See all my reviews

This nineteen ninety one film was then nineteen year old director Daniel Erickson's first full length feature film.Producer Keith Brunson teamed up with co-producer/director/writer Erickson to bring his vision to life.They formed the production company Generic Movies LTD.to produce their one and only film. Filmed entirely in and around the Austin,Texas area,it has the look and feel of a small country town. The film centers around Warren,a paranoid young man who spends most the movie in a constant state of fear. Set in a Jaycees type of small town spook house,Warren comes to believe an escaped homicidal maniac is hiding inside! The movie builds suspense from beginning to end,you can't stop watching it!Every scene in this film works perfectly to produce the desired effect on the viewer.Daniel Erickson has created a cult classic! The movie stars a then unknown John Hawkes in his first feature film. Then Austin resident Butch"Eddie Munster"Patrick puts in a comedic performance as a spook house worker.The film also used a lot of local cast and crew,and even Keith Brunson has a cameo role as the spook house door attendant. The only problem with this film is that so few people have seen it. It never opened nationally,and was only shown in one local theater. Occasionally it is shown on Halloween in Austin,but it never got the recognition it deserves. I have the very good fortune to know the Erickson/Brunson team,and have made it my personal quest to get this film seen. I played the film on my horror host show in Austin,and have sent copies of the show to horror hosts across the country. Watch your local horror hosts show and someday you may get to see the original"Scary Movie". In summary,this is a perfect first offering from Generic Movies Ltd. it offers horror,suspense,comedy,something for everyone.It is a must see cult classic!
