Storyline

Sam Epstein has been struggling to get his foot in the door, as a filmmaker and as a man, but his attempts inevitably fail. Sam believes that he alone is responsible for his success or failure as a filmmaker, and he resolves to shoot his first feature. At the hands of Sam's roommates, Trevor and Chip, mishaps quickly bring production to a standstill. Trevor introduces Sam's crewmembers to his drug collection while Chip seduces Sam's beloved leading lady, Janus. Sam wrestles to regain control of his shoot, but the battle transforms him into a ruthless, sociopath who carries a loaded gun on the set and throws hot coffee at exhausted crewmembers. Sam finishes the film but loses Janus, plunges himself into debt and incurs a $1 million lawsuit from his crew. Meanwhile, Chip peddles nonexistent screenplays to top acquisitions executives while blocking Sam's own attempts to contact them. Sam snaps, turning to black magic for help. He intends to make Chip a human sacrifice, convinced that ... Written by Montlack, Andrew

If you've ever lived with a selfish, hedonistic roommate, this film reels you back in time. The coming of age film mixes the making of a movie with the macabre, adds some Hitchcock with a hint of Woodie Allen, and then ends at the beginning. From the writer and director of award-winning "Him!" (1996), this longer film shows growth and development for Andrew Montlack. Surrealistic scenes and characters intertwine with the realistic frustration embedded in creating a movie. Plenty of suffering and humiliation lead a perfectly nice person to do not-so-nice things to others--on purpose and accidentally. Give this one a try and enjoy.
