Neophyte filmmaker Ed Smith achieves more realism than he'd ever imagined when someone begins knocking off the cast and crew of his schlocky serial-killer movie. As people on the set of "Curse of the Killer" meet their deaths one by one, it's up to Smith and his grumpy casting director to keep the production from falling apart. Written by netflicks

User Reviews

Another B-movie that's better than most A-movies.
20 May 2008 | by innocuousSee all my reviews

This isn't a GREAT movie by any stretch of the imagination, but it's still pretty good. "Tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek" does not even begin to describe how this is played by all the actors. The entire movie is empty of any serious thoughts. The violence and bloodshed are just a notch above a cartoon (often using shadows of the characters performing heinous acts) and I really can't see much in this that wouldn't be suitable for even small kids.

The plot is quite thin, but the script and the characters are quite funny. Every character is a stereotype of Hollywood personality and/or the horror-movie genre. The two standouts are Weetus Cren as Charles Drake, the loopy semi-serious producer/director of an extra-low-budget slasher movie, and Lindsey Labrum as Mindy, the perky not-so-there production assistant.

This movie really is a lot of fun and I suggest you give it a chance. Just don't expect a classic horror-comedy.
