Storyline

A cunning psychopath with more than an axe to grind murders the kindly Mailman in a small, placid suburban town. Darius Foxx scarred for life as a young boy by seeing his parents brutally murdered, comes back to town as the new Mailman to torment his younger brother, Daniel, and Daniel's adopted family. Daniel, a bored loner who is upset when he finds his lovely sister, Beth, has fallen for his best friend, Jay, learns of his adoption and past from the new Mailman. Upset by the news, he joins the Mailman in a string of cons and sadistic crimes before he realizes just what kind of psychopath he is dealing with, and by then it is almost too late. Can these three teenagers stop The Mailman before he kills again? Written by Todd Wade

This movie is so bad it's surreal
19 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you think about the distribution of movies on a bell curve, then the all-time greats are just as rare as the worst movies of all time! In this respect, it is better to be a HORRIBLE movie than it is to be a mediocre one.

But seriously, this is actually a great C-film to enjoy and to hate while sitting around and drinking beers with a bunch of friends.

In addition, the film seems remarkably surreal at points. The behavior of the characters, especially while "pursuaded" by the mailman make very little sense. It's the visual enactment of a "non sequitur." Throw in random breasts every ten minutes and you have the makings of a very strange movie.
