Storyline

Harry Penderecki, a once heralded horror auteur, finds himself on the outside looking in at Hollywood. He hasn't had a hit film in years, and most in the industry, including his close friends, think he's washed up. Harry is given one last chance to redeem himself with what could be his best or last picture. Brutal Massacre becomes just that, as the cast and crew find themselves battling one mishap after another as Harry struggles to keep his sanity against overwhelming resistance to finish the picture and find himself at the top once again. Written by Tom Bambard

Brutal documentary
7 April 2009 | by kairinglerSee all my reviews

This one will take some getting used to,, first off this is a movie about the making of a movie. it pokes fun at all of the processes that go into making a movie,, like yhou got to deal with whiney cranky actors, missing props, bad hair days,, you name it,, well this fellow Harry the director seems to be cursed from day one,, he even ends up with a dead crew memeber,, get's slapped for touching a girl's breasts, to name a few,, this one does start out extremely slow,, so i would say the first 25 mins were painful to watch,, but low and behold the movie does get interesting and you actually start to care about the characters and wshat happens to them,, so i think that the movie did a fine job salvaging itself from middle all the way to the end.. so not bad,, if you want sometning to laugh at , and poke fun at.
