Early on, we meet Oliver, an actor playing Steve the policeman, who investigated the 1982 murders when they happened. Later, though, it is revealed that Steve and Cathy were high school sweethearts at the time of the murders. If Steve was still a high school student, he would not have been a policeman yet, and could not have investigated the murders. See more »
Provides some fun, but really isn't as good as it could have been ** out of 5
It's a shame because this film had a lot of potential. There were really lively moments like the man getting chopped by a huge fan, but then it goes into oblivion and confusion.
Basically, what I mean is that the film itself is constructed in a way that really confuses the viewer. This isn't David Lynch we're talking here, this is supposed to be a horror comedy but some of the jokes just don't work because we're too busy trying to figure out why these random scenes come out of nowhere and whether or not we're watching the movie or the movie within the movie.
Now that may sound like a fun element to the film and indeed, if constructed the right way, it probably would have been. But alas, it pretty much... well... in all honesty... fails.
But this is definitely one of those you'll at least wanna say you saw if you're into 80's schlock.
Love the poster art though.
