Hollywood: Tommy Pistol (Aramis Sartorio) is a good-for-nothing wannabe
actor, who has troubles even making it to auditions, while he hasn't held
a job for more than a month in years. When he's fired from yet another job
and he tries to sell it to his wife (Karen Sartorio) as a chance to pursue
his dreams, it proves too much for her, and she packs their son and leaves
him, just like that, and threatens him not to call her unless he gets his
One year later: Tommy's life has spun out of control even
more, as he seems to be nothing more than a semi-conscious wreck hooked on
fast food and porn. And while he microwaves a hot dog for a dangerously
long time and attaches his president to a penis pump, he dozes off and has
dreams about the life he could have had ...
- Tommy is a young actor who has just come from New York on a job
offer, not realizing he is to be the killer in a snuff movie. Naively,
he gruesomely kills girl after girl, including one (Mia Tyler) using a
cheese grater, always believing everything is just special effects,
until one of his supposed victims (Kimberly Kane) proves to be an
undercover cop, and the minute she has freed herself, she shoots
everybody on site - but Tommy won't let her steal his spotlight ...
- Tommy somehow gains access to a movieset where Arnold Schwarzenegger
(Alan Burke) shoots his comeback fitness video. He skins
Schwarzenegger and wears his skin to become him ... but that works a
bit too well, since in Schwarzenegger's skin he becomes a violent
brute, and he kills everybody on set - except for a skinny oriental
girl (Camilla Lim), whose spirit animal (a dog voiced by Sean Cain)
tells her to fight Tommy/Schwarzenegger to death ...
- Tommy is a porn director. The star of his latest production Daisy
(Daisy Sparks) is bitten by a radioactive spider, and now she mutates
into some sort of zombie, but not only her but everybody who has
contact with her. For some reason, Tommy succeeded to avoid just that,
but with everybody around him already zombified, that might not be
such a good thing ...
If you think the fate that awaited Tommy in his dreams though, wait
till you see what happens when he's awoken by the exploding hot dog in his

Granted, The Gruesome Death of Tommy Pistol is not exactly the
most subtle comedy - heck, the film is pretty much carried by dirty jokes
and excessive violence. And one can easily argue that the movie has
certain weaknesses concerning storytelling, and at times, Aramis Sartorio
overdoes his role a bit too much, acting-wise.
But you know, all this matters only marginally this time around, as
basically, The Gruesome Death of Tommy Pistol is pure madness, an
over-the-top mixture of comicbook-, grindhouse- and porn-motives presented
in a no-holds-barred sort of way. I mean, after all this is a snuff film
parody, a skinned Arnold Schwarzenegger and porn zombies all rolled into
one, so how much subtlety can you expect - in other words, this might not
be a perfect movie ... but exactly because of that, it's the perfect party
It probably should be sold with beer attached to it J...
