Dream, nightmare or reality?

August 21, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

St. Jules clearly has talent. What he needs is a story that maintains its consistent level of zany wit from beginning to end.

The film, in effect, becomes a manifestation of humanity's knee-jerk reaction to laugh when scared.

February 27, 2016 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Unfortunately, the filmmakers have little feel for the period or the genres they're spoofing, and the songs are mostly pretty bad anyway.

What begins as a sort of fitfully cute small town musical parody mutates into a decidedly more unique cartoon of feeling trapped; the lesson seems to be that, if you're going to go Lynch, its best to follow him all the way into the darkness.

St. Jules's script takes too many detours, and many plot points aren't carried through. Sometimes the meta film jokes feel strained. But he gets strong performances from the cast, who all channel 60s archetypes while maintaining their individuality.
