I wasn't sure what to expect from this one, as the copy I rented seemed to be slightly digitised, like a web video, despite being an official rental dvd. However the plot started well, with a mental patient's obsession with his old film, and then moved onto a showing of the same legendary cult movie at a small town movie theatre with a sparse audience of enjoyable characters. The leads are likeable and have great moments. The acting is a little patchy from the cast, veering from slightly amateurish to very good. There's also a really stupid error in the script where a cop fails to recognise someone he only spoke to ten minutes before. However, after a meandering start, once the gore and suspense get going, they escalate very well towards a harsh and very tense climax. The director certainly has a gift, and the moderately low budget of his film doesn't stop his talent for suspense from shining through. Many chase and attack scenes are very well handled and supported very well by sounds effects (especially the sharpening of the killer's weapon) and music. The weapon itself is original and causes gruesome, gory injuries. The killer also manages to look and act very frightening and imposing in the majority of his scenes. There's also great use of a hugely fun and underused Hollywood idea of a film within a film. It's a very good low budget horror slasher that's got enough originality tension and effort for three of its competitors.
