|Cut 2000 R, 82 min.|
Genre: Horror / Thriller
Director: Kimble Rendall
Cast: Molly Ringwald, Frank Roberts, Kylie Minogue, Geoff Revell, Jessica Napier, Sarah Kants, Stephen Curry, Matt Russell, Erika Walters, Cathy Adamek
Molly Ringwald deserves the half-star for this otherwise piece of trash. Film students set out to complete a horror film that had been started years before and stopped when the director died. But there was more involved with stopping the film than that, and the students find out when the killing starts. So bad that the film may well develop a cult following.
