This very pleasant surprise of a film gave me even more hope for the future of Hollywood. I do enjoy many big-budget movies, but I'm always on the look-out for great indy-films. "Redrum" is such a one. It's reminiscent of the 80's film "Eating Raoul" in some ways (the dorky, "square" couple transforming themselves through outrageous means, for instance), but it veers off onto more morality-questioning paths. Pretty deep for such a fun, often extremely silly movie. In fact, if you're not a fan of the silly, the bizarre, the truthful, or the absurd, "Redrum" may not be your cup of tea. The actors are all on their game, particularly the two leads who are hilarious from their geeky beginnings (the first dance scene! OMG!),through their transformations (when he tells her he has to deal with his high school nemesis by himself! OMFG!), all the way to the very end. The supporting actors are just as talented in their various roles: often obnoxious... and totally funny. Look for great things in the future from these film-making folks!
