NOT Just a Great Indie Movie- A Great Movie PERIOD!
19 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I began watching this film intending to count the hack plot devices and script clichés. In 5 minutes I was lost in what turned out to be a wry, witty comic horror gem. The premise is surprisingly fresh & slightly farcical. A hapless schmoe finds himself the center of a bizarre plot in which a group of hack artists plan to kill him in the name of art. Bungling chases, attempted murder, actual murder, sex, drugs, rock n' roll, & accidental maiming by fire are just a few of the mishaps and perpetrations which follow. This is offbeat, dark comedy at it's finest. The effects- fantastic. The script- witty and engaging. The story unfolded and progressed at a pleasing clip. The acting, usually the bane of the indie movie, is great. This award-winning movie is 90 minutes well-spent. There's many surprises & laugh out loud moments. I liked it so much, I bought my own copy.
