Storyline

High in the hills among the last remnants of Hollywood's golden age, 24-year-old Tod and his 22-year-old sister Lani live a breezy, charmed life in the sprawling mansion of their grandmother Judy, a former movie star now relegated to hosting a dying home-shopping show. Tod's carefree, narcissistic existence takes a dark turn when he accidentally (perhaps) shoots Judy, killing her instantly. Desperate to maintain his decadent lifestyle, Tod hatches a diabolical plan to cover up his grandma's death, keep her show rolling, and keep the money flowing. After seducing Judy's partner Barb, Tod convinces her to allow Lani to host the show in Judy's "absence." The ploy works and the ratings go up. Next, Tod turns his attention to the mansion's 25-year-old handyman Jacob, who also happens to be involved with Lani. Jacob is the one person that can help Tod put the finishing touches on his evil opus. Surviving a long string of close shaves, Tod manages to outwit everyone, even the LAPD. With Lani...

DARKNESS LIES IN THE HEART OF HOLLYWOOD
6 December 2018 | by pjames10See all my reviews

I was in a mood to watch a trifle about the pretty blond people of Hollywood being cruel... and this movie filled the bill. Sure, there were some logic holes (how many days until a body goes ripe?) but I was willing to overlook them because it was so damn pretty to watch. And yes Charlotte, there is a dark soul behind the gates of Olympus and the blood looks just as black under the moonlight.

If you liked The Day of the Locust and Sunset Blvd., consider this their B-list progeny.
