What an odd movie!
This movie is a real curio. It's muddled and preposterous in parts, but it still has some clever, quirky ideas, a little dark humour, and some imaginative murder sequences. Like a lot of Larry Cohen movies, it manages to look visually stylish on a very low budget.
Eric Bogosian is fun as always as the egomaniacal, psychopathic hack director (this is exactly how I imagine Eli Roth, the creep responsible for Cabin Fever and Hostel, in real life). And of course, it's worth it alone just for the all-too-rare chance to see the wonderful, late Zoë Tamerlis doing her thing. She doesn't get a chance to shine as brightly as she did in her iconic, mute debut role as Thana in Abel Ferrara's cult classic Ms. 45, but she brought great beauty, presence and talent to whatever she did and this is no exception.
Just thought I'd christen this film's board...
