disturbed filmmaker Able Whitman
(David Hess) is unhappy as his last
horror film bombed big time so he gets an
idea by making a snuff film slaughtering
people as well as using their body parts
and corpses for props in his film after
he gets an idea when he ends up in a car
accident by killing his passenger and not
knowing with to do with the dead body.
The first part of this film
seemed quite interesting in which we look
at the bloodied opening credits and found
this to seem like an entertaining drive
in type of Grindhouse
flick but while watching the film it
looked like a complete ripoff. There's
lots of 70's feel to it as well as the
main character Able Whitman acting like a
jerkoff while taking off his clown make
up after a theatrical showing of his
movie and griping about everything. Then
there's some strippers performing as well
as one of them hitting on him.
There's some disturbing moments with a
car accident and this stripper dead but
yet there's things attached to her which
doesn't explain why they're there as well
as Able tearing her arm off in which I
couldn't understand how that could've
happened either. A good camera shot moving around his
body with a blood bag and other objects
which makes you wonder what this is all
about and then a good camera shot looking
away on him with him calling action and
then passing out.
There's sick moments with corpses being
used for his film in which this maniac
tries to fool his actors that they're
corpses but they reek like crazy in which
can make the viewer really cringe.
An interesting shot on Able chasing towards a woman with a killing object as
well as cheesy blocking on both of them
struggling and then her falling behind a
desk with him taking out body parts which
wasn't convincingly gruesome like it should have but too
Alot of the scenes seem too comedic as
this killer kills a receptionist and then
puts her decapitated head onto a desk
which looks like an obvious head of a
dummy and I was thinking ho hum.
Many corny takes and conversations
between Isaac Beaumonde and April Carson at a malt shop in which all of
this looked way too cheesily done.
There's some good close up shots on a
minister in a limo holding a cigar and
talking towards both of these people which looked crisp but again the
moments on the conversations looked trashy.
There's some cheesy camera takes between Able talking to April about doing a
role along with him getting hysterical
which looked fairly energised but at the
same time quite corny too.
A good approach by an
employer being hard on Able walking back and fourth with him sitting
down. The speech on this was kookie but the
setting looked fairly okay.
Eventually the murders are a little more
serious which combines this film a horror
as well as a comedy as there's moments
when Able is torturing a girl to death in
a storage room tearing out her insides as
well as getting revenge on one of the
film producers by cutting off his hands
that he also uses as props for his movie
with bloodied body parts in a room while
he starts to slaughter this person too.
There's a scene that's not for everyone
with him pulling out an eyeball with
everything going as this scene really
psychs you out and almost wishing that
this moment was over.
There's a good side camera shot with him pointing a sharp object towards this employer in a double decker bus and a good close
up shot on him being stabbed
which looked not too badly done.
A good dark shot on Alan Dackman entering a
room with Able sitting there
cackling hysterically as well as good
gruesome shots on body parts and bloodied
walls with Alan himself getting a
little anxious as well as a good shot on
Able using a machette and slamming it
down on his arms and a cheesy close up
shot on him screaming in pain
raising his cut off wrists with Able chanting crazily to him abvout having his
hands in which all of this looked quite
There's a good shot on Able whacking someone to the ground as well as a nice close up
shot on him pointing a
dissecting knife in front of the camera.
A good looking moment with Able grabbing Philip Farmsworth
on a desk acting aggressive as well as a
camera shot looking up on him using an award piece and smashing it down
many times which looked quite brutal.
There's even scene's with Abel forcing
have herself tied on each rope hanging
along with a heroic battle by her
boyfriend to save her which was kooky.
Some good camera takes between Able with an axe in his hands and Isaac with
an object battling one another near a
metal staircase and other objects but the
heroic battle looked hokey. There's a
good moment with April coming up
from behind Able and whacking
him with an axe and then
falling down. Then a nice camera shot
looking up on April looking down.
Then a nice shot looking down on him
opening a container revealing a
Bottom line is this film was almost
plotless with a maniac filmmaker killing
people to use as props for his next
upcoming horror movie in which is called
a snuff film. It was just gross and
easily forgettable not reminding you that
it was hard to understand.
The acting is quite bad for
the most part but again alot of these
types are. David Hess (Able Whitman) seemed to
act overly goofy in his role as a maniac
filmmaker in the flick showing a
versatality instead of acting dark and
serious in alot of the roles I've seen
him in. He's not bad with his comedic
timing and can really act menacing when
he needed to be for this flick. But I've
seen him perform alot better in Last
House on the Left. There's a good wide
eyed shocked expression on him after being whacked by an axe near the end of his performance.
Buck (Isaac Beaumonde) was a little too over the top
in his role as someone who tries to act
brave and heroic in his role but yet this
seems to be the intention. He does bring
out a descent amount of energy into his
Sasha Grey (April Carson) seemed to show an
interesting outgoing behavior and came
across well on camera along with some
good screamiong and emotional reactions
as I found her to be the best actress in
this film. Again, this isn't saying alot.
Michael Berryman (Philip Farmsworth
Jr.) has a supporting
ole in this one. This time he doesn't
play a freaky character but a film
producer. However, he doesn't seem to
pull off his part too well in my honest
opinion. He's a good actor but this part
was not right for him.

The music is very 70's
oriented composed by Michael Dubue
with alot of disco sounds like you'd hear
in those blaxploitation flicks back in
the good old days. There's also annyoing
high pitched screechy saxophone music too
which seemed to really get to me. Plus
there's some low bass guitar music too as
well as the odd banjo music which sounded
a bit kookie.
