Storyline

Chad Buckley is a horror aficionado, and he's lonely. Chad spends his days at his struggling genre video store arguing with his only regular customer, Sam. When an unsuspecting applicant shows up, Chad begins to teach him about the rules of horror and his video store at large, much to the chagrin of Sam. During Chad's on-boarding process, we weave in and out of different hilarious horror shorts, each one geared at a different set of horror tropes. As this new applicant learns the ropes, he begins to suspect Chad of something sinister, but we quickly learn that he may have a secret of his own. Written by yusufpiskin

The Cabin in the Woods-ish - B Movie Style
28 July 2020 | by ryanpb-51787See all my reviews

I really appreciated the way this film worked hard to turn its B-movie budget into a strength. When you're making a horror comedy and you can't afford theatrical-release-worthy effects (or actors), what do you do? You embrace the cheese! This movie is very self-aware, making no attempt to be anything other than it is: a crazy clever hodge podge of at least a dozen classic and more traditional horror films...a movie about movies in which they watch several movies before ultimately becoming part of a "movie"! (You read that correctly; quite meta. You'll have to watch to get it lol.)

Bottom line; if you have an open mind and you're not an outright film snob, give it a watch. You just might be pleasantly surprised, as I was!
