I purchased this movie at a horror convention where it was being hawked. Intrigued by the idea of supporting grassroots filmmaking, and seduced by the free-with-purchase t-shirt and trading cards, I plunked down my cash. To say this movie blows, is to miss the point. True, it's slow and painful, primarily due to the poor, overwrought acting, but it does have a fun "Let's put on a show," vibe. The script has some interesting ideas in it, however it's nascent cleverness isn't really developed and is hampered by clunky dialogue. The big guy, Tom Powers, who plays the doctor seems to be having the most fun and is, therefore, the most enjoyable. He's a big ol' hambone in the fun Vincent Price/Peter Lorre tradition.
