Outstanding Satire! TWO THUMBS WAY UP!
8 April 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Clearly this daring little film has hit a nerve with the imdb community, so for the record I am firmly in the 'THUMBS UP' category. Basic plot is modeled after the teen slasher genre, wherein a bunch of beautiful 20 somethings gather at a luxury penthouse in Vegas, party, gossip and in a wonderful touch by the screenwriter actually chat/philosophize in an intelligent (albeit morbid) manner before we finally start the action and watch them get whacked one by one. The TWIST, and yes it is a twist, is that the filmmaker (Galluzzo) lets the audience in on the gag from the beginning by letting them know who the killer is. For once we are allowed to be with the wolf not the sheep. By doing this he has turned the genre on its head. Almost mocking it. Which clearly has offended some

traditionalists. All I can say is watch it again with a smile on your face instead of a scowl and you'll see that this indie is something really fresh and new. A brave leap into anti-genre filmmaking in a time when we are inundated with the same old slasher films time and time again. RSVP stands out as a film that at least dared to go its own way and in the end it is an open minded audience that wins. Outstanding Satire! Two Thumbs Way Up!
