Killer Movie: Directed by Jeff Fisher. With Paul Wesley, Kaley Cuoco, Gloria Votsis, Torrey DeVitto. A reality TV director copes with a spoiled celebutante and a show gone haywire when a masked killer starts bumping off the crew in this slasher-movie satire.

“Killer Movie is a fairly entertaining teen horror movie very much in the spirit of the 80s, but without the nudity.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eA small town that has never had a decent ice hockey team is about to win it big. Hollywood decides that this story would be perfect for a reality show. As the director arrives he finds out that the producer has other plans- to unmask all the towns dirty secrets, of which there are plenty as the former hockey coach just got out of jail after killing is ex wife accidentally. But then, more gruesome killings begin. The crew which doesnu0026#39;t get along entirely tries to just do their work. Eventually they too will be affected by the townu0026#39;s darkness.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMuch is made of a celebrity character that takes the job of a PA to advance her career. But itu0026#39;s Hollywood that is also a principal character in this movie and the way it operates, through deception and manipulation. And that aspect of the movies is the most interesting and entertaining.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWe donu0026#39;t really get a sense of the town and itu0026#39;s people because the crew is at the center. A masked killer starts killing random people and filming it all. Strangely, no one bothers to call the police but as always, the script requires a bunch of teens to start investigating things on their own in the middle of the night.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere are a lot of attractive ladies in Killer Movie. Even though we have no hint that this will turn out to be a whodunit, the identity of the killer turns out to be a surprise, itu0026#39;s an insignificant one because at no point are we asked to wonder about his identity.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAs a slasher movie, this one lacks scary moments and gory killings. There are a lot of characters and few too care for, so the deaths donu0026#39;t have any impact. The main storyline of the making of the reality series isnu0026#39;t all that interesting really. But itu0026#39;s the intrigue that keeps things going.”
