She takes charge of the situation by inspiring him to write a horror script by killing all his friends and family. Written by
I just got back from the "Texas Frightmare Weekend" in which this had a screening. Red Victoria is about a man named Tim. He is a screenplay writer who writes Dramas/Comedies. His manager informs him that his scripts aren't selling and he is going to have to do a Horror film which is all the fad right now. So Tim sets out to write one without really wanting to write it. He attempts to get help from a friend who is a movie buff but that doesn't help much. So... one night, whilst going into his bedroom he finds a corpse, or so it appears. A spirit named Victoria has been sent to help him write his Horror film. Red Victoria stars Anthony Brownrigg (also writing and directing) and Arianne Martin. Anthony writes a damn good film. The dialog never feels forced and is very funny. It may appear to be a casual Horror film, but you HAVE to see it. It is a great light comedy that is in the taste of films like "Hot Fuzz" which are great pokes at it but are in there own way like the genre there tackling. Red Victoria has many great performances, great dialog and everything you need in a perfect film.
