DVD Review: The Backlot Murders

I have to admit that this movie entertained me. The acting was primarily terrible, but it really didn't matter here, it sort of added to the film's appeal. Charles Fleischer's character was absolutely hilarious, and he totally made the film that much better. The story follows a terrible hard rock band, who fire their out of control bass player. The lead singer is dating the daughter of a record executive and they are about to sign a big contract. While filming their first video on the backlot of some famous horror movies, people start to die. There's no real surprises here, but between the campy acting and Fleischer's witty dialogue, you can't turn the movie off. The film is more fun than scary and I give it ***1/2 out of *****.
