"Star Vehicle" follows the downward spiral of movie driver Donald Cardini, a self-professed movie buff with a penchant for explosive violence when provoked. Driving the stars of low-budget movies, along with their fragile egos, to and from locations in the middle of nowhere, pushes Don's buttons in all of the wrong directions. When Luke, the young and self-absorbed writer/director challenges Don's authority, murder and mayhem ensues. The movie's Scream Queen' starlet, Riversa Red, to her dismay finds herself the target of Don's obsession. With his encyclopedic knowledge of her "body" and body of work, Don worms his way onto Riversa's good side, no easy task. Not knowing whether to fear or friend Don, Riversa finds herself at the center of a cyclone with Luke and Don both vying for her attention. A mysterious Hotel Bellboy and an unknown "watcher in the woods" lend themselves to the growing suspense as the cast and crew hold-up at Forest Grove Lodge. After a couple of grueling days ...

Low budget movie with a twist
12 April 2011 | by jdsalasSee all my reviews

Bad acting, bad directing, which is consistent with low budget filming. The only reason why I rated it a 5 is due to the fact that towards the ending of the movie I was caught off guard with its interesting twist. If the acting, the directing and the script was polished, I would have scored it high and I'd watch it more than once. The quality of the film was something to be desired (sarcastic remark). While I was watching the movie, I nodded off a couple of times. I also was irritated at the director's acceptance of some actors' performance. But like I was saying about the script, if Ryan Nicholson polished up the script a little more and let a more seasoned director make the movie, it may have been a hit. Also, he could get a better understanding in directing a film.
