Back in the eighties, when he was a kid (and played by Jake T. Getman), he starred in a movie called Chain-Face Clown, a run-of-the-mill slasher ... that's seen as a classic by today's audiences, so to his surprise, Jonathan (Oliver Robins) is invtied to a comic book store opening as the special guest, and to his surprise, people even line up to get his autograph - all but shy but gorgeous Emily (Alissa Schneider), who seems to be circling Jonathan though and watching him from the corner of her eye, so when he stumbles into her again at his hotel, he decides to chat her up, taking her for a fan just to timid to approach him. Emily claims though she has never heard of Chain-Face Clown, but also suggests she might be interested in him anyhow. And even though Jonathan has a loving fiancée, Michelle (Melissa McNerney), at home, he follows her to her place - basically because in looks alone she's way above his pay grade. They spend the night together doing you-know-what, and it's only the next morning that he notices she has a Chain-Face Clown tattoo on her leg, showing his face as a kid. This freaks him out a little, especially since Emily has claimed she has never seen the film, and he tries to make a getaway - but he tazers him, and when he comes to, he finds himself chained to the floor. Turns out Emily's a highly delusional psychopath  who basically wants to re-live the movie, with Jonathan playin his role and herself playing the Chain-Face Clown, who has been Jonathan's guardian angel in the film, killing all his bullies. To that effect, she has even killed the actual title role actor of the film (Eddie Craig) and eaten from his flesh. And now she does round up those who (in her imagination) bullied Jonathan, like a couple of producers (Jonathan D. Lee, Wade Hunt Williams) who rejected one of his scripts. Of course, Jonathan doesn't take long to realize his situation is dire, but how to escape a crazy woman who seems to have covered all the bases?

 

On the surface a psycho thriller, Celebrity Crush also works as a very dark satire on today's fandom, especially its weird excesses on social media, taking them back, to some extent, into the "real world". And what's making this work is that the film on one hand shows a deep understanding of the horror genre, horror fandom, and 80s slashers, but on the other always seems to have a twinkle in the eye, even if never going the straight comedy route. Plus relatable characters brought to life by solid performances sure help to make this one a winner that's ought to be well-liked by those into geek horror with a sense of humour for sure - and the film even gets extra geek points as its writer-director-star played the young boy in the classic Poltergeist back when ...
