Storyline

Charlie, a demented filmmaker, tries to make a low budget biker film in a small town. He wants the actors to get deep into their roles, so he persuades them to actually live their role in the small town. But the film turns into a 'snuff' film, as the actors get out of control. Written by Fryingham

A movie-within-a-movie about the ethics of moviemaking
7 August 2001 | by (Minneapolis, MN) – See all my reviews

Misleading title disguises a very good low-budget drama about the making of low-budget biker/exploitation movies and the dangers of letting too much reality intrude into the unreality of the movie world. The actor playing the obsessed director looks SO MUCH like Roger Corman that it had to be intentional. It's so sad that a film of this quality has to hide behind a salacious new title and be sold as a teen sex drama to be shown in theaters. See Dennis Hopper's THE LAST MOVIE for a similar story but made with more money and less focus.
