The show, based on creator Adam Green's real life and set in his small hometown of Holliston, MA, follows the lives of Adam and Joe, two friends chasing the dream of becoming successful horror movie filmmakers while struggling to make ends meet and dealing with life and the opposite sex in their post-college jobs at a Boston area cable access station where they also host a late night movie program called "The Movie Crypt." The core ensemble is rounded out by Joe's girlfriend Laura (a morbid yet adorable aspiring artist) and Adam's ex-girlfriend and the greatest heartbreak of his life Corri (a gorgeous nurse and aspiring country singer).

They did this to both "keep it real" and to "mess with each other" because they thought it was funny. After a few weeks of this, the make-up department had to ask them to stop punching each other in the face as they were swelling and turning red for future takes. They continued to still hit each other every so often when they knew they were on the last take of a scene. See more
