Great film, if you like this sort of thing...
4 February 2005 | by (IN) – See all my reviews

...and I LOVE this sort of thing.

Once again, the IMDb page is filled with people who reviewed this, not even being a fan of this type of film. Personally, I am absolutely ecstatic that films like this still exists at all. This movie is more like the horror films of the 80's, never taking itself too seriously. Yes, this still has the self-referential bug that has bitten almost every horror film since Scream. I cringe whenever I hear a character go, "FREDDY KREUGER! WHAT A GREAT DRESSER!" Even though, in this case, that line was mutterred by a gay guy. So, it was all good.

This is a movie about a rock band going to Hollywood and filming their music video. At the beginning of the film, they have a fight and kick out their old drummer. During the night of the video shoot, the production crew and band mates and their girlfriends get killed in exceedingly bloody ways.

Really, what's not to like here? You have an extremely attractive female cast, a fast pace, a high body count, actual interesting (though two-dimensional) characters, good humor, good lighting, good writing, good directing, etc. If you're into B-Movies, this is gold. This movie is noteworthy in my mind for two major reasons: It's the first Colombian necktie I've ever seen performed in a film. Also, the killer's mask is of a Satanic Elvis. Great great great.

Deifnitely worth checking out.
