Trying to be humorous, but falls a little short.
13 September 2006 | by (Dallastown, Pennsylvania, United States) – See all my reviews

This is a short 9-minute filmed made by a horror director who looks back on his experience when he made a film with international star Klaus Kinski. The film was called 'Crawlspace', and it was yet another junk film Kinski made for the sake of making money. The director is trying hard to be funny, but the film isn't that funny. It is a little interesting to see how Kinski acted behind the camera. He was well-known for being very hard to work with. His ego is prevalent within the first minute of the film when he talks about how "allergic" he is with other directors. Enough though he was a talented actor, did Kinski really need to act like this? He looks exactly like one of those stereotypical snobby actors who walks with his nose in the air. Maybe that is not important. We the audience should only care of what is the final product on the screen.
