Another terrible "movie" shot on video, 5 January 2006
Author: F_Jenkins from la

Here is another product of the digital age, when cameras and equipment are cheap enough and easy to use, that we are now getting an influx of these straight-to-video "movies" made on video by amateur filmmakers. I use the term "filmmaker" loosely because the people responsible for this didn't use film and have no idea what they were doing.

They can't decide if they're doing a slasher flick, documentary, sex romp, America's Most Wanted episode or what here. Gary Ridgway's actual police interview is sprinkled in between scenes from the movie which is odd, since the "actor" playing him looks and sounds nothing like him. When we hear audio of the real Ridgway being interviewed, then the audio of the "actor" doing him, it's like night and day and reinforces the complete lack of acting ability by the lead.

Of course, reality is also not a factor in this "movie" as the "director" would have you believe Ridgway got all his victims at one sleazy dive bar, would take the girl out in front of numerous people each time, kill the girl and leave her body by the river and no one could figure out, despite the fact he was the last person seen with all these women, taken from the same dive bar in front of the same people, who the killer is.

We also get out of the blue, an "actor" playing his lawyer who is being interviewed by the "director" I assume, in one of the turns where it goes from being a "movie" to a documentary many times.

"Pacing" is not a trait the "director" is familiar with as the "movie" moves at a snails pace. For some reason, the "director" thinks showing every possible angle in each scene adds to the "entertainment value" (another term the "director" is not familiar with). This is why, the movie has been going for 30 minutes and there have only been three scenes so far. We have to see every angle on and on and on.

Another common trait I have found with these bad "movies shot on digital" that we're seeing a lot of now, is "actors" playing mentally challenged people. I don't know if they think it's easy to play this or it shows of their "acting" ability, but in this movie, we get two talentless people doing it and it magnifies the fact there isn't an actual actor in this entire production. Everyone is awful and because it's shot on video, it looks like a porn (you even get soft porn). This is of course why I use the term "actor" and "director" in parentheses since none of them are actually skilled in any way at their respective jobs in this movie and it would be in an insult to real actors and director to refer to them as such.

The most amazing thing of all, was at the end, the lengthy credits that display the numerous people involved in this production. The "movie" seems like a guy with a video camera and we're supposed to believe there was a crew working this production? They want us to believe there was an actual cinematographer? Check out the lighting in the bedroom scenes. It's high school bad.

In conclusion, I'm sure people like the makers of "Manos: Hands of Fate" are happy these days. There are so many of these types of bad, straight-to-video type movies made by talentless hacks that soon, there will be a whole new slew of the worst rated movies in the IMDb and this production is bound to be one of them. If it's not in the top ten lowest rated movies ever, I'll eat a bug.
