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 ...

A Disappointment From Ryan Nicholson
17 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Frustrated Teamster driver Donald Q. Cardini (Dan Ellis), abused by spoiled stars and arrogant students, who becomes a ticking time-bomb of revenge. As Don goes on the rampage, his favorite scream queen, Riversa Red (Sindy Faraguna), finds herself up for a new role in the greatest gorefest of all: real life.

A noticeably lower quality than "Gutterballs", which I would consider one of the greatest slasher films ever made. Was the budget not there? I do not know, but the video quality looks very amateurish, and the acting is questionable from many of the bit parts.

Sometimes ultra low budget works. One of my all-time favorite films is "The Janitor", which pushed the low budget to an extreme. This film does not seem to realize that to capture an audience, you need to make up for the low budget with a sense of humor. This films lacks it, with even less humor than "Gutterballs". And it does not help that the review copy I received seems to be the wrong dimensions (the screen is squished in).

The score is repetitive and uninteresting. This was the same man who did the "Gutterballs" score, I believe. However, that films had a rocking soundtrack of Loverboy and Trooper to carry it. Here, no real music to speak of, just the same riff over and over and over. Could the sound be partially to blame for my dislike of this film? Oh, heck yes.

Nudity is always a plus, and the girl with the lotion is sexier than she ought to be for what she was paid. But that, sadly, may have been the highlight of the film for me. Two minutes of young breasts. Which is either an incredible insult to myself, or an incredible insult to this film. I am not sure which, but I will probably never see this one again.
