Storyline

This story centers around Charlotte, a struggling young actress who can't catch a break. In an effort to support herself and her hopeless mother, Charlotte holds a job as a cocktail waitress at a seedy, local strip club and hates every minute of it. During a cigarette break late one evening she witnesses an altercation between an overzealous bouncer and an unfortunate passerby, David. David makes movies and given Charlotte's career interests a friendship quickly develops. Soon enough, David mentions a project he has in the works that she would be perfect for and an excited Charlotte agrees to take part. She has no idea what she has signed up for. Written by Anonymous

Q - Who is David Long?
31 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A- Possibly the most likable psychopath in the history of cinema.

I don't watch horror movies to see people survive. I like a good killer that I can root for. Usually that means a unique killing style or good one liners. Sometimes a killer can be impressively devious or have so much personality you have to like him. It's very rare in horror to see a performance that makes you genuinely like the character as a person. David Long is a psychopath you could go bowling with. He seems like a fun guy. I mean, yeah, he kills people, but it's okay. That's just David.

Kristi Ray is the perfect compliment. She's a little damaged by circumstance, but still a pure sparkling soul that would be irresistible to any goodhearted homicidal maniac.

Joe Stauffer is definitely a director to look out for. This movie isn't just good for an indie film. It's a masterpiece. The performances, cinematography, writing, every aspect is top notch. It hits every note that a movie should hit. It's twisted, but also sweetly romantic. It's an art film. It's funny. I mean, if all you want is 'splosions this isn't for you, but if you want to see a well-executed original film that will stick with you, this is it.
