Trivia

Goofs

Several scenes the pistol held by different people was not cocked. It was a single action M1911A1 Colt type semi auto pistol. It was not a double action type where you pull the trigger and it cocks the hammer for you. You can't just pull the trigger and it fires. To fire an uncocked pistol is impossible. See more »

Quotes

Noreen: Whew, sure is hot out tonight.
Hank: Hot.

The Actors Studio!
2 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Grabastic - I'm a channel flipper and I stopped flipping for this little gem. The movie was all about acting, it reminded me of 12 Angry Men or Night Of The Living Dead as it took place in a small space and was packed with tension and personalities. Bloody movie if you want street cred. You really didn't know who would be shot next or how or why. Micheal Madsen filled his type cast as a deranged thug and the rest of the cast played through acting school chops. Madsen got to ham it up and his experience showed. The writing was well done and tightly edited. Jake Busey as always bought the air of chaos and wildness along and fleshed his character out well. You could really imagine the actors walking around the green room with a script and talking to themselves.
