Storyline

Meet Peltzer Arbuckle, a meek and bullied office employee, humiliated by his megalomaniac boss, teasing colleagues and his cheating partner. Peltzer spends his days in misery, stuck in his own mundane, nightmarish reality. Once news about his embarrassing sexual accident makes it's way around the workplace, Peltzer decides to put up with his humiliation no more, and conjures up his childhood imaginary friend Ronnie. Peltzer's world is soon turned upside down, when Ronnie attempts to manipulate him to exact revenge on his tormenting co-workers in the most gruesome fashion. As the body count stacks up, Peltzer must ultimately decide whether to run away from his past or take control of his future, as he battles between sanity and madness, in this twisted tale of infidelity, revenge and snapped banjo strings.

Alternate Versions

A 107 minute work-print version infamously known as the "Cannes Cut" was screened at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2015. Scenes included: a vicious domestic abuse encounter between Melissa (Serena Chloe Gardner) and Stiles (Clay von Carlowitz), characters returning from the dead to haunt Peltzer (James Hamer-Morton) and numerous intense bullying scenes involving Clyde (Laurence R. Harvey), Mr. Sawyer (Vito Trigo) and Stiles (Clay von Carlowitz). Along with those mentioned additions, the "Cannes Cut" included more death scenes and dream sequences, which made the movie's overall tone more of psychological thriller, rather than a horror comedy. The "Cannes Cut" has only been publicly screened twice during the Cannes Film Festival in 2015, and has never been shown outside of France. See more »

Fatalism in all its horrific glory
24 February 2020 | by newcreaturefeatureSee all my reviews

Peltzer is a defeated man. That's his lot in life and it guides his every decision. Many a good horror movie has a weak-link character whose role is to make the irrational decisions necessary to forward the plot: Harry Cooper in Return of the Living Dead, Miguel Ferrer in Deep Star Six. Now imagine the lead character in a story being such a man. That's the strong point of this movie. It leaves the viewer squirming in their seat, helpless as we ever could be. There's no use shouting at the screen, no point cursing the character; he's going to do what he has to do and you can only enjoy the train wreck. As typical per a Troma-style movie, you have unrelenting bullies who utterly humiliate the most vulnerable characters. People you want to die the most horrible deaths imaginable, but I don't want to spoil that. Cool points go to the writer for dropping Henenlotter's name on one of the facilities.
