In a trashy convenience store, the owner Steve, his clients, phone sex worker Mona, and the whore Jess, his employee Donny Donut and his junky nephew Jimmy discuss with the carrier Morty what they would do with the serial-killer if they caught him.

Did You Know?


The title of the movie is hidden at least twice in the movie. (1) Near the beginning of the film, the newspaper that's magnified by the pair of reading glasses next to it has text that reads, "Chief Wilson proclaimed 'WE WON'T QUIT TILL WE HAVE THIS SICKO CORNERED!'" (2) Near the end of the film, the camera pans across some cans and boxes on a shelf. A can of corn is placed next to a quarter-turned box so that the word "corn" from the can, and "ered" from the end of text written on the box, spells out the name of the movie. See more »

Fun, entertaining and highly enjoyable
17 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

While gathering together for a card game in their convenience store, a group of friends find themselves the latest victims of a serial killer's rampage against similar employees in town and race to escape before they all succumb to his fury.

This one turned out to be quite exciting and enjoyable. Well, supposedly this was going to be a hybrid slasher/comedy but instead, it didn't really do either all that well and still came away rather enjoyable. The comedy elements are the biggest miscues, being not at all funny and really just lame that tend to make the film far longer than it really should be because the middle section is just so boring and dull that not a whole lot really registers. Once they come aware of their being stalked and hunted, it turns into a rather enjoyable affair with some big suspense scenes set within a location that really doesn't set itself up as being capable of doing so, and a rather nice twist that allows for some brutal kills to come along. While the killer isn't that threatening and it does have some other flaws, this one does become a lot more watchable as it goes along.
