Storyline

Neophyte filmmaker Ed Smith achieves more realism than he'd ever imagined when someone begins knocking off the cast and crew of his schlocky serial-killer movie. As people on the set of "Curse of the Killer" meet their deaths one by one, it's up to Smith and his grumpy casting director to keep the production from falling apart. Written by netflicks

Fincher meets Scream via the Coen Bros.
5 July 2006 | by (Saramento, CA) – See all my reviews

I recently saw the film at the Milan Film Festival and I thought it was great. I especially enjoyed the scenes with the writer and Manuel, the maintenance man. That dude is creepy! Jon Polito, as always, was a hoot. Infusing subtle humor in scary films is risky, but I felt they really pulled it off. The stylized, campy feel really worked. I'd love to see more of Truitner's work. It was fun to see the blend of styles (Fincher/Coen Bros/the Scream films). In addition, the score and visuals hit just the right tone. They made great use of the steadicam. Not wanting to give anything away, there is an awesome shot where the camera just roams around the studio that I thought was especially effective in conveying the mood.
