Winston (Josh Miller) the rich kid in town, invites pretty much all the
teenage population of his hometown over to his place to have a big party.
Thing is, the kids in town couldn't care less about Winston, and has so
far shown little interest in them ... but hey, it promises to be a big
party, so everybody's coming. There is something weird about Winston
though, for the party he has all doors but one locked, as if he was luring
everybody into a death trap. And oh, there is a strangler in town, who has
made it his habit to sneak into teen girls' houses to kill them. Among his
victims is Winston's girlfriend even. The strangler is permanently masked,
and all we, the audience, know is it cannot be Winston ...
probably dig a bit into Winston's past right now: You know, Winston has a
brother, Miles, a brother known for his violent fits, who at one point
even almost strangled Winston's girlfriend. But Winston didn't treat Miles
too well, either, among other things he cut off his finger and burned his
face with boiling water. Eventually, Miles was sent to a mental
Winston's party turns out to be a rather dire affair, but
as paties go, someone always sneaks off into some bedroom or other for
some sex ... but with the strangler around, this only ends in death by
strangulation. the other partyguests are oblivious to the dead bodies
piling up for the longest time. Eventually, everybody's dead, everybody
but Winston and the strangler. In the showdown Winston reveals the
strangler to be Miles on the loose, and admits that he had thrown the
party as bait for Miles to have him kill all the slackers in town. Now
that that's accomplished, Winston kills Miles.
Enter lil' Erin (Misty
Mundae), a partyguest who has just been out for a bit, and now she returns
to Winston's place, she finds all these dead bodies. She then runs into
Winston, who calms her down ... and then strangles her with his own hands,
because it would have been a shame to go through all of these troubles to
rid the town of all slackers, then miss one ...
With the films
of his company Factory 2000, filmmaker William Hellfire wanted to
recreate the spirit of Andy Warhol's Factory by throwing together a
bunch of freaks to have them perform in some very raw, uninhibited
ultra-low budget movies. The outcome varied considerably concerning
quality, though. In the film at hand, Hellfire tries just a bit too hard
to shock, there is a rape scene, a makeshift abortion scene, masturbation,
detailed pussy shots, a short onscreen fellatio, tits aplenty and so on
and so forth. None of this is a bad thing in a movie, but Hellfire clearly
uses all of this to shock his audiences rather than tell his actual story,
in other words he tries too hard to be outrageous to give the film an
opportunity to come into its own. Plus the rawness of the film doesn't
exactly help it to tell its story, which becomes especially apparent when
the flashbacks are not recognizable as such and just confuse instead of
All that said, there is still something about this film many
other no budget and dare I say amateur films lack, probably the enthusiasm
that everybody put into making the movie, that's somehow infectuous and
makes this somehow enjoyable after all. Not a great movie by a longshot of
course, but there are way worse out there.
