Dazed, Confused and Cheap: Nigel The Psychopath (1994)

Nigel The Psychopath (1994)
rating: 0
starring: Rob Hayward, James Kirk, Jim Larsen

What do you call some bored teens and pre-teens with too much time on their hands, with a camera and have no idea what they're doing? Nigel The Psychopath.

Okay, maybe they're at least aware of what they are doing but eitherways, the film's still awful. If you even call this a film. As far as I can tell, the "story" exploits the murders of a rather "elusive" killer who changes costumes for every moment or so, which is very plentiful for the count. Not that it matters, however, as the zero budget really shows.

With no solid plot, acting, direction, technical skills or even acceptable bloodletting (at least), Nigel The Psychopath is no more than a backyard home video that really deserved to be hidden behind some dusty old shelves. I don't even know what these guys were thinking, but I'm imagining something to just pass the time since nothing's good on TV anyway.

What seems like an hour or so felt like an eternity of looped audio, people pretending to be murderers, cops and dying victims, with no more than a dime-store worth of props and one of lamest masked killer to be concocted out of a weekend afternoon.

Screw this! Anyone who will find one utter enjoyment out of this (which I highly doubt) are probably the cast themselves and whoever was high enough that time to help them even distribute this trash. Dump it!

    Say, Herman, are you on FB/Twitter, or is it possible to communicate via Email? Craig and me would like to do a collabo-post with you, but it's obviously not that easy to talk to you about it in blog comments... ;)
