It was supposed to be a workshop to write the perfect horror movie when professor Wise (Thomas Thoroe) has invited six (wannabe) horror scriptwriters (Kelby Keenan, Josh Myers, Ian Weichardt, Jack Brown, Kunjue Li, Georgia Maguire) from all over the spectrum, from the sceptic to the empath to the true believer, to one of the spookiest place in town to write the perfect horror screenplay. Tensions soon mount among the sextet though as troubled soul Ruth (Kelby Keenan) claims to have brought the actual knives of Jack the Ripper, while the ubiquituous sceptic Zack (Jack Brown) tries to tear her down, only just shying away from calling her an attention whore. The next morning, Ruth wakes up from a horrible nightmare that has shown her Jack the Ripper (Andrew Shire) among them, while Zack is gone, apparently with parts of the script Ruth has written. Professor Wise claims Zack has just left the premises, but nobody really believes him, and the more our heroes investigate, the more they have to come to the conclusion that Ruth's nightmares might have been more than just that, and when they find out that Wise and his helpers might have locked them in with something quite deadly, that doesn't quiet anyone down. Now of course, Wise has an ulterior motive with his scriptwriters, one which doesn't involve a horror screenplay, and Jack the Ripper might have indeed to do with it ...

 

Now I will be quite honest with you, Razors isn't always quite stringent in its storytelling, at times even seems to abandon or randomly pick up narrative strands as it moves along - but that somehow works for the movie here, as it intentionally shatters walls between "the real world" and the realm of nightmares, and indeed following a rather dreamlike (as in at times illogical) narrative style, the film only comes across as much more nightmarish in feel. And add to this a very atmospheric direction and a bunch of competent performances, and you've simply got yourself a pretty cool piece of horror!
