Not the worst film I've ever sat through--but very close

This feature was independently produced, allegedly in seven days on a budget of $10,000. Alas, it looks like it was produced in seven days with a budget of $10,000.

The story is a complete mishmash, with no setup scenes to let the viewer know who is who or what is going on or why what is going on is going on. With my ability to construct the preceding sentence I could have been the chief scriptwriter for this thing.

The actors--and I say that with tongue firmly planted in cheek--would probably do well at waiting tables. The camera work is dark and dreary, both normally good qualities in a horror film, but in this case the sets are so dark and dreary that we can't see anything happening. Special effects and "stunts" are right up there with my Cub Scout skit from 1967.

Chief questions about the "plot": (1) Who is the killer? (2) What part does the dog play? (3) Why are the two female leads so totally unlikable? (4) Why didn't the producer spend his $10,000 on something worthwhile? Following the "story", we are then introduced to a round table discussion by the film's cast and crew. Or is it part of the story? It's definitely better than the slasher flick we've just sat through, showing far more drama and much better acting. But it is in the category of much ado about nothing, and adds little to the entertainment value of this substandard quickie.

I am a fan of independent films, and particularly of imaginative slasher films. Being that I have always desired to make a movie of my own I never give these films an absolute zero, but this one is definitely in the running.
