Goofs

Appearing during the second part of the song "I'm glad I'm Blind", when the bass player Robbie (Nick Thorp) is standing. Robbies' guitar is shown alternatively in front of Nick (Matt Sbeglia)'s head, then behind. Two takes of this song with a different physical arrangement on set seem to have been edited together, resulting in this odd effect. See more »

Music sucked so bad I could not wait for the slasher to kill these kids

A slasher musical?

I'll give props to Vincent D'Onofrio the actor who debts as a director on this film. On the bonus features he mentions how while he was waiting for a geen light on another film, he had a film crew and a backyard and some of his nephew's friends to help him put it together in less than a mouth. For that the movie is cool.

But I'm not a fan of the musical in general and it did not help that the music being played sucks in my book. The movie is about a band of hipsters from Brooklyn going into the woods (even though a sign clearly states don't do it)to write songs for the next album, only to be hunted down by the dude I would not be surprised put up the sign in the first place.

The movie starts off funny as the Hipsters literally fall into all the horror clichés (starting with going into the woods), but then I had to sit in on a second act filled with music that was just to whining for me. One song after another and I wanted to shoot myself. But then...then, the slasher comes out. Possibly just as sick of the music as I am, he puts the kibosh on their little camp out.

It's hard for me to say weather the movie is good or not. I enjoyed it. I don't know if D'Onofrio purposely laid out the movie to be so annoying that you cheer the slasher when he starts chopping up these hipsters. I would love to think so.

Realistically, the making off the movie is more impressive than the movie itself.
