Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Comedy’s hard, but it’s even harder to be this funny while maintaining a fundamental respect for the film’s characters, and it is that humanity that turns out to be Greene’s greatest trump card.” Variety

“It has been compared to movies like Larry Blamire’s The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (2001), but Greene’s film […] has more in common with Wim Wenders’s The State of Things (1982) and especially Joe Dante and Allan Arkush’s Hollywood Boulevard (1976). It’s a cult movie in the best sense: it’s well made with strong acting and a witty script full of references and in jokes to films past.” UK Horror Scene

“The films’ characters and Greene’s writing brilliantly portrayed the frenzied writer, director and actors of those films and the quick turnaround time and measly budgets allotted to them. The dialogue between characters is witty and has a rhythm to the patter that is edgy.” Lisa Franklin
