Synopsis

Horror Flick is a fun, scary thriller about a film that is so bad, its viewers die watching it. The evil spirit of the movie’s leading man, who died during filming, is somehow imbedded in the film itself. Our hero is Brent Wooden, a Clint Eastwood-type, macho detective who is more comfortable dealing with psychos than psychics. His assistants include Buttonwillow McKittrick, a hippie, brainy, yet peculiarly seductive medium and Roger Herman, an ultra-low budget film maker with an ultra-high budget ego. This eclectic group must team up to stop this terrible killing spree before it airs on national television, wreaking havoc on the entire country. Their goal? Find the evil spirit and destroy it at its roots—the original celluloid copy of this long forgotten film.

***Melanie V””V- #NerdGirlVamp’s  Review***
I love a good satirical read and I love “stupid” horror movies and so I was excited when I got the opportunity to review Horror Flick as the description ticked a lot of boxes for me.

Sadly though for me this just didn’t work. Having looked a little further into the author’s background afterwards I can see that he is very accomplished as a screen writer and I can totally see that being the case.

For me this almost felt like it NEEDED to be a script and have it play out on screen. If that was the case it would probably be one of those bizarre movies that I happily had in my collection – unfortunately in this format it really just didn’t grab me.

2 1/2 stars rounded up to 3 V””V
