After his latest film is met with horrible reviews, Able Whitman sets out to prove the critics wrong by finding inspiration in his cast and crew. Sometimes great art requires great sacrifice- and the director always gets final cut!
On the brink of their beloved single screen independent movie theater being shut down forever, a misfit band of theater workers face the corporate evil, foreclosure and the unthinkable...... See full summary »
Frustrated with his most recent film doing poorly, film director Able Whitman finds himself at a strip club where he meets and takes home one of the strippers, Gigi Stops. They have an accident on the road which kills Gigi leaving Able to figure out what to do with the body. He conveniently decides to "disguise" the body parts as set pieces to his new horror film. When this new design style is met with much praise, Able decides he needs more parts to fulfill his new "project". Written by
The gore set pieces were all shot at the end of production. Moreover, real animal guts were used for said gore set pieces. See more »
In the final part of the film, when they're at the theatre to watch at the screening of "A Trilion Leaning Towers" it's clearly dark, but when they get out, after only a few minutes, there's daylight already. See more »
Ladies and gentlemen, the announcement we are about to make has been made only three times before in motion picture history. Each time, it has preseated that the showing of motion pictures that have become reguarded as the most unsual of their type ever filmed. And now... we make this announcement for the fourth time. We are about to show you a new movie which is called Smash Cut. Watch if you must. But remember... you were warned.

If you love low budget films, this is an absolute must-see. I loved every minute of it, every bad line of dialogue, every bad joke, every predictable plot device, even the ridiculous costumes.
On the "B" movie scale I give it 8 out of 10.
The cast and director are (mostly) very experienced, if you think for a minute that the camp and cheese is accidental, you should probably rent a Van Damme flick next time.
Incidentally, it was filmed in my hometown, so I enjoyed seeing familiar landmarks. Most notably the famous Bytown Theater is featured in several scenes.
I read the other reviews on here and really, if you don't like "B" movies, don't write reviews on them... If you know what to expect from this film, you will love it.
OK, actual critical stuff... The opening and closing credits were both absolutely first rate. The score is brilliant, really ties the film together very nicely. The cast is full of familiar faces for horror buffs, which is a real treat. Sasha Grey performs excellently, and I love that the director never sexualizes her (except for a cute nurse outfit).
Watch this movie in the right frame of mind and you will have a blast!
