Un-Natural Selection
5 February 2000 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

When Hollywood studios jump on a band wagon, it is the unfortunate tendency for the independent scene to crowd the wheel tracks. Serial killers were hot a few years ago but these people aren't swift enough to realize just how much psycho-killers have cooled off. Maybe they should have made a boxing movie.

The poster for this movie tags it as "The standing room only, sell-out sensation of the 1999 Austin Film Festival." As bad as this movie was, this is not a glowing endorsement for that particular festival. There were a few funny jokes, but they were far and painfully few between. Most of the "funny" moments were based on one of the following 1) "Wacky" back-woods types acting, well, wacky or 2) Cursing - as if the f-word is still such a novelty that its mere utterance will cause us to fall over laughing into the aisles.

I only wasted $4.50 to see this movie. If you must see this do not be suckered into paying more than a matinee price.
