Wow! So bad!, 24 August 2009
Author: p-stepien from United Kingdom

The plot? Sexy horny chicks, who apparently like giving and getting some, get morbidly murdered, then have flowers placed next to their corpses. The local sheriff Jimmy Fleck (Jeffrey Combs), incompetent and focused on getting reelected, isn't really up to the case. Actually he's more interested in getting into bed with hottie deputy Zoe Adams (Sarah Thompson). With the election on Tuesday, sexy bodies turning up all over the place and Zoe getting all envious about his wife and children the sheriff is getting really nervous. Zoe trying to get her mind of her affair focuses on the serial killings. Unfortunately there seems to be no shortage of horny, young chicks in this small town...

Despite the above description it is not a porno movie, although the script and lines suggests it may have as well been. Just add some sex scenes and you have yourself a porn flick. Essential gorno with bad dialogue and atrocious acting. Nothing inventive, new in any manner and even solutions are clear rip-offs.

The only reason I don't give this a 1 is Michael Berryman as Leroy Calhoun, who plays an autistic bloodhound trainer. May not be Shakespeare, but its good to see him in a role, where he is not the bad guy.
