Fool am I for giving in to heedless grab-and-go impulses at the video rental shop...I should have known what was in store for me when the checkout girl at the counter held up the video box and yelled "Hey Jim!", at which point her co-worker spun around. They both let out a knowing little snicker, and today I can join them in that snicker because I fully understand the joke, except that it's not *really* a joke, because jokes are funny. SPLATTER, on the other hand, *IS* very much a joke, though there's nothing at all funny about it.
This is a docu-styled look at a bunch of hopeful twenty-nothings at work in the special effects tier of a low-budget barbarian apocalypse film. There's gratuitous nudity and really naff gore to keep things barely watchable, but I still couldn't guiltlessly recommend this garbage to Hitler himself. It's boring and very dated, and infinitely less interesting than most of the "extras" you can see currently in most DVD releases.
