Entrepreneur Simon Tyler has purchased a warehouse with intent to turn it into a nightclub. Hiring, "the best and the brightest" in the business, he - along with his personal assistant - are holding an energy party to brainstorm ideas for the club when an obscure gypsy curse is accidentally invoked, summoning the evil elemental force of 'Thed Ude' to wreak havoc on the revelers. In the end, only the unsuspecting Pizza Man can save the day, but only if he can overcome the worst day ever in the life of an over-weight, balding, lonely pizza delivery man. Written by
Not a bad no-budget feature that picks up in the last act; a new spin on the '80's horror genre. Steve Merrill plays the Pizza Man, who is having one of the worst days ever: his co-workers dog on him, the girl he likes thinks he's too old, his car is moments away from breaking down - only dogs and ducks seem to be able to see Pizza Man's true nature. Intercut with the Pizza Man's story is that of entrepreneur Simon Tyler, who has bought an warehouse with the intent to turn it into a hip nightclub. Holding an all-night "energy party" with his new employees - a dj, an aclu lobbyist/stripper, a goth artistic designer, a professional bouncer/security engineer, and his personal assistant - the group manages to invoke the Romanian gypsy curse of Thed Ude.
All-in-all, this is your standard campy horror movie with a few twists (noteably: a tango sequence).
