Storyline

This is the story of a low budget film crew, led by their blind film director, Larry Benjamin (Lloyd Kaufman/co-founder of Troma Inc.), trying to make some art. In addition to the typical trials and travails of a Troma set, the crew finds themselves set upon by a sexually conflicted, bomb bearing serial killer. Production assistant Jennifer (enchanting Alyce LaTourelle) struggles to succeed on set and to decide between the two men in her life - straitlaced Casey (Will Keenan) and over the edge Jerry (Trent Haaga). This threesome heats up as the killer draws even nearer. As the insanity increases and the bodies amass, the crew bands together (both physically and sexually) against the threat in their midst. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Quotes

Jerry: [applying plaster to Yaeger the naked P.A] Okay, Yaeger one more layer. Great! Now in 10 minutes when it's dry, we'll have a perfect mold of your head. Now, it's very important that you don't move, breath, blink or do anything. Hello? Can you hear me? Give me a signal!
[the naked P.A. flips his middle finger at Jerry and mumbles something incoherently]
Jerry: Okay, great! Gotta go. I'll be back in 10 minutes. Gotta go see a man about a severed leg.

just awful
24 May 2002 | by wappfalls5See all my reviews

This movie just annoys me. Because it makes me realize that the only thing keeping me from a career making movies is start up capital.

I KNOW I can act, write, direct and produce better than this thoroughly annoying piece of absolute garbage.

There is not a single moment of humor in this movie and because of the intended humor that falls so flat it just becomes uncomfortable to watch. When I watch, I just feel embarrassed for everyone on screen.
