Beyond Bad
27 October 2012 | by billcr12See all my reviews

Famine is one of the worst movies that I have ever seen. Writer-director Ryan Nicholson should be banned from the industry and deported from Canada to an island in the middle of the ocean, with no electricity and no chance of getting behind a camera again for the rest of his natural life. A group of valley girl types and guys as equally vacuous wander the halls of a school and mostly spend their time in a gym talking about a yearly "famine" where no one can eat for 24 hours. The acting is incredibly bad, and the script and non-existent storyline is beyond belief. Someone is bludgeoned to death about every ten minutes by a killer in a life size Howdy Doody outfit, while heavy metal music blares in the background. The only positive note is the fact that this piece of sh** ends in a merciful seventy seven minutes. Oh Canada, how could such a travesty have escaped your border to be inflicted upon the rest of the world.
