Oh boy, it's another late night horror show, Dr. Nasty's Cavalcade
of Horror, hosted by one Dr Nasty (Brian Scott Carleton), a washed up
has-been with an alcohol problem and a predilection for seducing interns,
and Samantha (Jamie Elizabeth Sampson), a B movie starlet who busts her
ass running the show in her director/boyfriend's (Mike Donis) place, as he
has promised her the lead in his next movie.
The two movies shown
- Dinner for Monsters: A very decadent couple (Jeff Sinasac,
Sandra DaCosta) hire a successless chef (Nick Smyth) to prepare a very
special meal for them and their friends - a meal made from human flesh
- and they bank on his frustration over his lack of success that he
will do as they please ... but might just have created something far
more sinister ...
- Slit: Brad (Colin Price) offers his clients a very special
service - he slits their skin open ... no really, he's not a psycho,
that's his business model, people who are into cutting themselves but
have no experience come to him for kicks or whatever, and pay him
accordingly. Sounds gruesome and wrong, but Brad sees it from a
business perspective. But then he meets Brii (Caleigh Le Grand), and
she has a whole other, much more sinister attitude towards slitting.
With the double feature over, the now roaringly drunk Dr Nasty decides
to whip a chained up Samantha bloody live on camera ... upon which she has
a very understandable breakdown and demands from her boyfriend/director
that he fires the drunk - but he suddenly becomes all evasive ... about
everything, and soon Samantha finds out the whipmarks on her back are the
least of her problems - and it soon becomes clear, there will be blood ...
Late Night Double Feature is actually three films rolled into
one, as the wraparound segment Dr. Nasty's Cavalcade of Horror
takes up more than a third of the running time and tells a pretty complex
(but also enjoyably over-the-top) backstage drama with more than a few
bloody surprises, all told enjoyably tongue-in-cheek. The two
"features" in the meantime might not be as
"grindhouse" as they're supposed to be given the wraparound -
but that's a good thing, both are very macabre little tales, well-written,
well-directed, well-acted, and again, not entirely gore-free (though don't
expect a total slaughterhouse). In all, a film of very high entertainment
value that's sure to please the more sophisticated horror fan.
