James, Corey and Kennedy, real filmmakers, are struggling.  They take a job doing behind the scenes footage for a terrible movie complete with egotistical director, diva actress and greedy producer.  The beginning of the movie is actually horrible, but if you press on it gets better.

Kennedy’s the one that gets them all killed.  She keeps wanting to explore everything.  The boys are like “No Kennedy, let’s not”, but she does anyway and they follow her because she’s a wimpy girl and can’t be left alone.  Their thoughts of course, not mine.

Nothing Kennedy says is reasonable.  The movie is really slow to start.  There’s not too many actual on-screen deaths.  But there’s plenty of boob shots.  One big steady shot coming from an actual porn star.  Yeah.  Points.

We would have really liked more story about the doctor of the asylum and his patients.  It’s a little weaker than the hospital movies we usually love, but it’s still a fun watch.

I gave it a 46/100 and DJ gave it a 53.


About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
