Mildly interesting in that sad kind of way.
9 February 2009 | by TheEmulator23See all my reviews

It's amazing what a certain budget can do for a movie. This documentary in of it itself looks & is mediocre in it's own respect. It's sad to see that so many people can be involved in the making of such a waste of space. It's one thing to make a bad movie & know it's bad, it's another to make bad movies & take them seriously. This documentary about the making of a Troma movie is better than the actual film. A term which I use extremely loosely. I can't believe there are films like this being made or that there is even a market for these either. This documentary shows the owner/director/ whatever else he is Lloyd Kaufman & all his temper tantrums. It would be one thing if he actually had some talent, but my god he is as bad if not worse than Uwe Boll, if that's even possible. Boll's films are Oscar material compared to the garbage Troma pumps out. Kaufman is so neurotic about every dumb little detail it's pathetic. Worse than that it shows just what sort of people little money will buy. Not only do you get less than 3rd string people as actors (I'm not kidding these "actors" are worse than terrible) your crew doesn't seem to know or care what the heck is going on. If you want to see why independent films usually fail, this is a good place to start. If you don't mind seeing a documentary about a terrible film & terribly cruel yelling madman (Kaufman) then this is for you. If you want to see a film that is actually good, then skip this please.
