User Reviews

Sheer Gold!
7 August 2003 | by Rebs88See all my reviews

That was total and utter crap, but freaking hilarious! So many things that say "Hey I'm real", but others that say "I'm so fake". We have the six people with each of their own little annoying behaviours. The big black guy is conceited, the geek is nuts, the mexican is super cocky, the model is stupid, the "tough" girl is too full of herself and the other girl is just plain annoying and needs to be shot. Overall, I give it 10/10, but just for the main theme song because it's great! *SLASHERS* SUPER FUN* If you are up for a good laugh, I suggest seeing this movie. OOOHHH, the Japanese ones actually look good! TOTALLY KICK BUTT! If there is a way to see JAP STYLE SLASHERS... do it!!! It'll be worth your $$!! Also, beware of Dr. Ripper, he should be renamed Dr. Pervert! You'll see why! :O
