the deepening ineptness
29 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After an extremely badly lit double murder we move on to the meat of the movie, Ted (Director Ted Alderman) is a firefighter whom transfers out of New York to a small town, after stress from 9/11 gets to him. Jim (writer/co-director Jim O' Rear) is the only fellow firefighter who befriends him while the others think he's damaged goods. Not to soon afterwords those close to Jim start to die by the hands of a killer in firefighter gear.

Tieing this low-budget slasher to the events of 9/11 is supremely tacky at best, so the less said of that plot point the better. The acting, while lousy, is somewhat forgivable given the sub-genre, but the mystery of who the killer is is painfully obvious from the get go and no amount of nudity (Jim beds the majority of girls in the cast, good use of writing/ co-directing there) or blood can keep the boredom of the film from creeping in. Also there was a 2 to three minute conversation in the film where the soundtrack totally overwhelmed the talking for no discernible reason whatsoever, that was just plain annoying.

Eye Candy: Maria Kil shows boobs, butt & bush; Christy McMahan, Debbie D, Debbie Rochon, Latrice Shokunbi, & Lanee Landry get topless

My Grade: D

Where I saw it: Netflix online via Xbox 360
