Charlie, a demented filmmaker, tries to make a low budget biker film in a small town. He wants the actors to get deep into their roles, so he persuades them to actually live their role in the small town. But the film turns into a 'snuff' film, as the actors get out of control. Written by Fryingham

False advertisement! This film really isn't about a teenager
17 October 2000 | by Serpent-5See all my reviews

jack H. Harris released a film that was so uncommercial he made it look like somekind of a runaway film. The film is basically about Charlie, a crazed filmmaker who tries to make a 50 grand no budget biker film in a small town. He wants the actor to act for real in the town, so he can get a real reaction from the small town folks. But the film turns into to be a snuff film because a incident. All the producer is worried about is can that pad the film with sex scene to make it longer! The film is a poor man's THE LAST MOVIE. The title character is a young girl who falls for Eddie, one of the actors who is on the run from the law because of the incident from the film. Joe Warfield (any relation to Chris? He looks like Roger Corman noted one reviewer) should get some kind of award for playing Charlie an obsessed filmmaker. He is funny, and gives a dead on performance as a Hollywood schlock filmmaker. Look for adult actor John Holmes in a three line part as a desk police officer. This is a good example of how films was made back in the 70's. Recommended.
