Your favorite horror comedy.
From a virginal heroine to a creepy janitor to a heavy breathing killer, this was a movie that took all the stock horror film characters and tweaked them for laughs. A killer is on the loose called "The Breather". The evidence mounts up against the virginal girl, named Toby. One by one, the body count rises, followed by an on-screen counter. Laughs and bodies pile up and things go from ridiculous to ludicrous.
The production was made during a writers strike, so there are many non-union people working on the production, in front of the camera and behind the scenes. The mostly unknown cast just adds another dimension to the film, as many of the original movies and situations that it parodies use unknown actors in the roles. It feels like a horror movie from the time period and that is this movie's greatest strength. It can mimic those situations so well that when the comedic elements arrive, they are magnified.
To fund the film, the producers used a lot of product placement. It is very apparent and is used to enhance the comedy. I still want to know who "The Stick" is, who plays Malvert the Janitor. He is perfectly cast in an oddball role. I can never think of horse head bookends again without thinking of this movie. This is a film that you will definitely be quoting afterwards.
