Storyline

Alyssa Rampart Pillage is a washed up TV queen whose career has been reduced to starring in commercials for her husband Bernie's appliance empire. When their tree hugging daughter Topanga dies in a tragic golf ball accident, Bernie goes off the spiritual deep end and tries to give away their fortune with disastrous results. But what starts off as tragedy quickly turns into career re-invention for Alyssa. And as the body counts rises, so does her star. Bad Actress is a guilty pleasure of a film that gleefully mocks the world of Hollywood and Fame, which reminds us that Justice has nothing on Celebrity. Written by Anonymous

A Killer Good Time
29 August 2011 | by (Rockaway, NJ) – See all my reviews

I've have been anticipating seeing this fill since I first found out about it's production. As soon as I saw the trailer I had high hopes for this film and waited anxiously for a New York showing and thankfully that day has come. This movie went above and beyond my expectations, especially for an independent film, but I expected that from director like Bob King, who is famous for the cult classic "Psycho Beach Party." This movie is filled with perfectly placed comedy throughout the entire movie, even while handling the subject of murder, eating disorders, revenge and promiscuity, along with the hilarity of watching a washed up soap star try to make it back onto the screen, only to appear in her husbands commercials for his appliance stores. The cast is absolutely fantastic, with the amazing Beth Broderick as the title star of Bad Actress, Alyssa Rampart-Pillage, and also Chris Mulkey who plays Bernie Pillage, the cool king of air conditioning and Alyssa's less than supportive husband. Although this movie isn't something you would watch with your young kids, I recommend it to anyone who loves a funny, but cynical comedy and those who are fans of Bob King's other works
