Astonishingly Witty little Black Comedy that reveals talent & intelligence
22 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having just read a review that describes this as a "Jerseyites view of the NY art scene", that is both astonishingly patronising (the whole point of the movie,idiot!)and unbelievably "jejeune" (wink), I have to say how much I love this film.

"Indie" cinema has been relegated to either a kickstart for the career of a middling celebrity, or a vacuum for self referentialism or schlock."Murder Party" is neither: it is witty,genuinely left field, and kind of touching. It is black-as-black comedy rarely performed well nowadays.

A hapless,lonely but genuinely nice,traffic warden on Halloween gets captured by a group of desparado wannabe celeb artists, after responding to a "murder party" advert. They desperately want to impress a local art impresario,Alexander, by performing a murder on camera as art. I will not ruin this for you but I will tempt: the rest involves sex,drugs, a dog called hellhammer "who is part dingo", unrequited love, a Belarussian drug dealer, a fry cook, sodium pentathol and "truth and dare", and of all things, vinegar. Not tempting enough?;a brilliant reference to "The Warriors" and a Horror mask that becomes reality...note "electric chainsaw".It stabs pretension and Genre expectation with equal abandon. Closest thing to John Waters I've seen for years.

This really needs to be seen. Well acted and incredibly well made. Oh yeah, its also incredibly funny. Low budget with few locations or tricks, and shot on DV so most DVD companies passed, and it was released in the UK by a company famous for SOV tackathons. Not fair, it's brilliant and better than anything Kevin Smith has done for a decade. If You see it on the shelf, Make it a cult.
