‘An epic of custodial proportions’

The Janitor is a 2003 American comedy horror feature film written and directed by TJ Nordaker and Andy Signore. The latter stars, alongside Bruce Cronander, and Crystal LeBard.


Lionel is a custodian that longs for more. Bombarded with daily disrespect and insults from his co-workers, Lionel sets on a path of revenge and begins to brutally murder everyone in his path…


“The acting is campy, the splatter is plentiful with dismemberments galore, there is crude humor with a prostitute who gives a new meaning to giving head, and there are dozens of silly horror movie references. As far as campy B-movie trash is concerned, this is amongst the best.” The Worldwide Celluloid Massacre

“Anyway, if you like over the top gore, semen humour, films that feature cameos by Lloyd Kaufman and Judah Friedlander, svelte redheads with pale knees, lippy brunettes with large breasts and equally large comedic chops, kung-fu fights that involve plungers, then you need see this movie, and you need to get your head examined.” House of Self-Indulgence

“You simply have to see this film. It’s a slasher on steroids, with laughs both outrageous and subtle. The writing and direction are right on the money from beginning to end, making this a quintessential horror-comedy that must be seen to be believed. It’s essential!” Oh, the Horror!

“The gore was done very cheaply, and it shows in most places, but I certainly hold nothing against the makers for trying to make a splatstick movie, and most of the gore works well enough that you get the idea […] The Janitor is an inconsistent film. Some of the humour fails, but other stuff, like the ‘damn good cleaner’ line, is spot on.” Digital Retribution

“So for over the top gore, some damn good comedy (intentional and unintentional), some pretty steamy sex scenes (enough that I now have a thing for Crystal LeBard) and lots of bouncing boobies, you can’t go wrong with The Janitor […] The total package of movie will make you overlook it’s warts and blemishes…” Horror Talk
