Director's Cut

"OK"

Director's Cut Review


Eric Stacey's independent slasher film has more going for it than most (we see more indie horror than any other genre of indie), but it's still a lukewarm entry.

It's got a clever idea: four teens head to Los Angeles for their Big Breaks, unaware that hot young director Cole Wilder -- creator of Night of the Fucking Dead -- plays out his productions with real killers, real blood, and real bodies. That's kind of it, as the body count of our hapless kids rises for the next 87 minutes.

Alternately funny and derivative, Director's Cut is disappointing namely because it doesn't build to a climactic finish, as any good horror flick has to do. Director's Cut just fades away, kind of stopping with a rib-nudging finish that ultimately feels like the world's longest lead-up to a punchline. If it's a five-star punchline, that can work, but you can see where Cut is headed from an hour away.

Let's see it again with more gore and more gags.
