Foul Play: Night Of The Dribbler (1990)
Starring: Fred Travalena, Gregory Calpakis, Flavia Carrozzi
No. A hundred fucking times "No".
Night of The Dribbler was a supposed lost slasher until a few horror fans became aware of its existence, herded enough attention about it and somehow convinced a high power (or at least an unfortunate distributor known as Code Red) to have it released. Little do they know they'll be wishing they haven't done that.
Personally? Who cares. Night of The Dribbler is a sad, futile, unfunny attempt to be another Airplane! version of a slasher movie, so much so that its 88 minute running time left like 88 hours! The obvious reason for this is that the writing had it fall flat on a joke in every minute, all of them wall-bangingly horrendous for how ungodly un-hilarious, inept and overworked they are. Making all of this worse is the fact that none of the casts have any charm or wit to their portrayals, the entire movie cannot hide its overall low budget, and the "slasher" subplot (which the film's extensively marketed as) was hardly used with only two victims ending up dead and the rest are harmed so badly that they can't play basketball. Yeah, harm counts. We pay good money to have a slasher out and all we got is a spoof with fucking harm counts. Zippy-Dee-Doodah...
Nothing! Just like this movie will be in my memory after I finish fifteen Jello-Shots! Avoid like a plague!
