Don't forget to take the trash out
20 March 2009 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Uptight yuppie businessman Ted (well played to ramrod perfection by Dave R. Watkins) gets infuriated after his sloppy neighbor Will (likable Scott Hodges) and Will's airhead blonde wife Kay (a delightfully perky Becky Biggs) continually neglect the proper disposal of their trash. So Ted summons lethal local urban legend monster the Garbage Man (Dan Slemons in nifty pasty make-up) to take care of Will and Kay. Director/co-writer Watkins concocts an amusing and enjoyable short movie parody that pokes merry fun at both the ridiculous touchy-feely petty-minded mentality of affluent upper middle-class suburbia and the cheery silliness of standard Grade B cheesy low-budget horror fare. The cast have a field day with their broad roles: Watkins, Hodges, and Biggs are all fine in the leads, Slemons makes for a gnarly snarling bogeyman figure, Christopher Thomas almost steals the whole show as eye-patched resident kook Crazy Willie, and Nate Hill lends sturdy support as Willie's equally flaky pal Cyrus. Daniel Solammon's shuddery and ominous synthesizer score hits the shivery spot. The crisp cinematography by Slemons likewise does the trick. A real hoot.
