I give Trisha's ass an eight, and this mini movie a one.

1/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A two person filming crew meets at their fleabag apartment with a few people to film an amateur porn video and find some sort of joke shop amulet which accidentally resurrects "Nefratis": a cute demon creature from the past who goes about killing them one by one, feeding off of their energies released during sex.

The majority of this 37 minute movie (which seems to be about two hours long) was filmed in someone's apartment, and in the climax it moves to an open field, where sexy little Trisha and the film's heroine battle it out using swords made out of aluminum foil and cardboard. In a puzzling and anti climactic ending, Nefratis is finally defeated when the heroine grabs her amulet and throws it into a lake. Well, actually the "lake" is just a piece of thick blue plastic being held in front of the camera to simulate a lake. Was the budget so low that they couldn't afford to drive to a real lake, what with rising gas prices in the US?

Along the way there are obvious references to other, better horror movies- an autographed, framed photo of Jason Voorhees(?!) is the most blatant and implausible of the lot.

After the movie is over, the DVD is padded with 20 minutes of rehearsal footage, bloopers, and outtakes- which look exactly the same as the footage included in the finished movie.

This mini movie (directed by, written by, starring, produced by, effects by, photographed by, sound by, make up by, and stunts by James Panetta!) would be laughable if it weren't so boring. Of course, that might make some people consider this one "so bad, it's good" though.
