Strange followup to Night of the Living Bread
4 August 2008 | by (Santa Monica, CA) – See all my reviews

I'm a big fan of Night of the Living Bread; it's my favorite student film. It's elegantly streamlined, inventive, and entertaining all the way though. Loaf, however, goes off in another direction, hitching its wagon to its "famous" big brother and saving everything for one big joke at the very end. Taken on its own (and looking at the ratings here on IMDb), Loaf would seem to be a failure.

Fortunately, most people who have seen Loaf have seen it under very specific conditions: at a horror movie marathon. O'Brien's peculiar oeuvre was a staple at a few of these throughout the 90s -- the Drexel in Columbus, OH, and the Case Western in Cleveland. I have seen these crowds chanting "Loaf! Loaf! Loaf!" in anticipation, and heard their cheers afterward. It's silly fun.

Ultimately, this film was designed as a punchline to another movie -- and in that regard, seen under the right circumstances, it works. Taken on its own, it's a strange creature. So if you should happen to have the opportunity to see Loaf, do yourself a favor and see Night of the Living Bread first. And remember to lighten up!
