So Bad It's Brilliant!
8 September 2011 | by adam-merrickSee all my reviews

One of my favorite all time crap movies but best watched after a night on the town.

As a film lover I have always enjoyed a complete turkey. It helps you understand how the film process works. I get the feeling that this film had it's budget cut while in production and Mr Golan gamely thought that he could carry the screen play.

Classic scenes like the silent disco (you can hear their feet shuffling). Or "Hey, not all gays are bad". I actually think the actor Shane Perdue who plays murderer Andrew Cunanan isn't half bad. If you're homophobic he's your ultimate 'bad gay'. Sex toys anyone? A Golan brothers (Cannon Cinemas) cult classic.

Films like this can easily get forgotten so if you come across it watch it!
