Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

A frustrated horror director decides that the best way to scare an audience is to take a more authentic approach to his craft in this gore-spattered satire starring David Hess, and inspired by the career and filmography of Herschell Gordon Lewis. When the director goes on a murderous rampage and begins using real body parts as props for his latest flick, intrepid reporter April Carson (Sasha Grey) teams with seasoned detective Isaac Beaumonde (Jesse Buck) to stop the slaughter before the film is finished. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Demabre's self-conscious focus on the z-grade end of the film industry is never quite enough to immunise his film against its own inadequacies.

Audience Reviews for Smash Cut

This homage to the films of Herschell Gordon Lewis (it even features him in cameos) starring David Hess (Last House on the Left) and former porn star Sasha Grey never quite manages to develop enough gore and craziness to fully capture the attention of a fan of such films. Instead, it plods along without ever developing anything original to remember.

Imagine John Waters made a horror movie about a director who uses real bodies for props.. and then remove any part that makes Waters movies such deliciously rye. The constant winking at the camera by the script is childlike and lacking any witt. It spells out what the audience already understand and offers nothing more. The awful wigs and performances are obviously intentional but do nothing but belabor an already laborious experience.

An incompetent horror director discovers he can make realistic gore effects by killing his co-workers and using their severed body parts as special effects. This slasher spoof tribute to Herschel Gordon Lewis (who has a cameo) has a few moments of inspiration but is mostly predictable and low on laughs.
