Storyline

"Star Vehicle" follows the downward spiral of movie driver Donald Cardini, a self-professed movie buff with a penchant for explosive violence when provoked. Driving the stars of low-budget movies, along with their fragile egos, to and from locations in the middle of nowhere, pushes Don's buttons in all of the wrong directions. When Luke, the young and self-absorbed writer/director challenges Don's authority, murder and mayhem ensues. The movie's Scream Queen' starlet, Riversa Red, to her dismay finds herself the target of Don's obsession. With his encyclopedic knowledge of her "body" and body of work, Don worms his way onto Riversa's good side, no easy task. Not knowing whether to fear or friend Don, Riversa finds herself at the center of a cyclone with Luke and Don both vying for her attention. A mysterious Hotel Bellboy and an unknown "watcher in the woods" lend themselves to the growing suspense as the cast and crew hold-up at Forest Grove Lodge. After a couple of grueling days ...

Nicholson slams his directorial career into reverse.
12 November 2013 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Ryan Nicholson's low budget short Torched was a satisfyingly brutal rape/revenge tale. His torture flick Live Feed failed to impress as a whole, but at least had lots of top notch mutilation and female nudity. Gutterballs was an enjoyable slice of retro-slasher deviancy. Hanger was utterly crude and totally bonkers—and consequently a lot of twisted fun.

Other than the fact that two of its actresses strip off for the camera, it's hard to find anything nice to say about Star Vehicle.

At little over an hour long the film should fly by, but with terrible pacing, a lousy script boasting dire dialogue, and very little in the way of decent gore, the going is really hard. Even when it does happen, the savagery lacks the sense of realism necessary to make it truly disturbing, largely thanks to the dreadful performances, but also because, on this occasion, Nicholson's special effects aren't up to his usual gruesome standard. Blood gets splashed about liberally, but the violence fails to churn the stomach as much as one would expect—surprising when you think that Nicholson's primary line of work is make-up FX.
