Review: Spinal Tap for horror? Yeah, I can see how Brutal Massacre tried to blatantly rip it off, but comparing one of the greatest mockumentaries of all time to this kindergarten bullshit is a crime against humanity. Brutal Massacre is a fake documentary about washed up horror film maker Harry Penderecki (Naughton) and his final attempt to live up to hype his first film received. But, surprise surprise, the crew encounters numerous problems and it becomes Penderecki’s most problem plagued film ever. But, my god, was this torture to watch. I kept watching, waiting for something clever to happen, but alas I was hoodwinked by Netflix’s generated rating system. One of Netflix’s features is the ability to predict your rating for unwatched movies based on the rating you have given similar films. Netflix predicted I would give this movie a 3/5. Wow, I must really watch some shit to warrant that rating. There is no intelligent or witty dialogue at all, the comedy is so deadpan it’s easier to laugh at the fact that the writers thought they were creating comedy, the acting was atrocious, and the plot was as predictable as a gay Stewie joke in Family Guy. Included in the cast are the crazy Indian manager from The 40 Year Old Virgin (Bednob) and Brian O’Halloran, the actor who outside the Kevin Smith world is useless. Just, just don’t watch this. Plain and simple. Nothing worthwhile in the least bit. Just boredom and hopelessness.
Netflix Rating: 1/5
