low budget thriller.........
17 August 2002 | by david-gregory4See all my reviews

From the maker of 'Friday 13th' comes this very low budget, probably a t.v. movie, thriller. It's about a young guy, Claud, a somewhat reclusive character scraping a living waiting on tables, bored, in need of a bit of excitement. Answering an ad for a leather jacket, he comes into contact with a group of close friends, who seem to have a hidden agenda, without realising it, he becomes framed for murder. Although it's badly lit, and there is some seriously bad acting, check out Claud's boss near the beggining of the film, the story still draws me in. It's a bit like one of those 'Tales of the Unexpected' (uk t.v. series) type stories that has a twist at the end. All in all, it'll never win any Oscars, but maybe once a year i'll watch it, if only to lap up the hammy acting and the $20 budget!!
