Skeptic and physics student Sonja Fitzgerald (Vida Zukauskas) finds a mysterious VHS tape in her basement one day; upon playing it she discovers it's a black-and-white film of a strange man performing a ritual. After doing some research, she discovers it is allegedly a film from the year 1594, made by the time-travelling sorcerer Var (Shawn Van Every) who harvested film equipment from the future and imprinted his spirit onto a roll of celluloid, and watching the film will release him. After dismissing this as nonsense, the seemingly invincible Var appears before Sonja and begins relentlessly attacking her. —Nicholas Kleban
Borderline horror version of "The Room" with awful acting, props, effects, plot, camera work, editing, and just about everything else BUT you can't look away as the incredibly strange acting of the lead is jaw droppingly odd, leaving you to wonder if she's mentally ill or that was just a gonzo choice. The circular story is sort of okay, if just so amateurishly done that it all falls flat. You're bound to get a lot of laughs though, so it's a perfect party movie.
