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 red convertible car that Able was driving had the top up when he started to drive to work. In the next scene, the top was down. See more »

A Comedy horror splatter film from the director of 'Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter' and tonight's movie is 'Smash Cut'
So this film is about a director, after his film gets bad reviews he kills people for his next film.
The reason this is being covered is because A. I bought it today for $3 and B. It stars Sasha Grey the porn-star and Hershell Gordon Lewis the director of 'Blood Feast', '2000 maniacs', 'Color me blood Red' and 'The Wizard of Gore' and finally C. Sasha Grey is attempting to pull a Connie Mason, who was Miss June in 1963, and then started her actual film career by staring in 'Blood Feast' and '2000 Maniacs'. So yea this is like some kind of history repeating itself kind of stuff also the plot sounds like something H.G.L. would make.
'Smash Cut' is a pretty good film, definitely over looked and underrated the characters are either flat or fun and goofy the acting isn't half bad. It feels like a film completely inspired by the earliest splatter films. A fun schlocky splatter horror comedy and it really holds up. Its a well shot movie and the lighting is good. The writing is decent it's actually funny not too funny but it still has the gore and low budget feel to keep it entertaining. It also kinda feels like a Ryan Nicholson film. It's not a masterpiece but its still cool and a great flick!
on the gore meter from one to ten one being something like 'The Corpse Grinders' ten being something like 'Braindead' Smash Cut is a 5 I guess
I got this at FYE for $3 and It was definitely worth it, hell I'd pay up to $6 for it. It's that good a 4/5
