Scream queen supreme Riversa Red (Sindy Faraguna) shoots a new movie with first time director Luke (Nathan Durec), another in a long line of slashers she has done over the years. But this shoot is special inasmuch as Riversa has a mysterious stalker, one that might be an actual threat to her well-being if not life. So thank God there's her driver Donald (Dan Ellis), who also happens to be her biggest fan. And even though he does show some behavioural problems, including outbreaks of violence, he's fiercely loyal to her and would never as much as touch let alone hurt her. So with him she feels safe ... not knowing of course that he has a habit of killing those who come too close to her, even her boyfriend (Matthew Janega) coming for a surprise visit. Eventually, his behaviour gets Donald fired from his job, so he takes Riversa, fellow scream queen Sienna (Erindera Farga), director Luke, makeup girl Jenny (Paige Farbacher) and the team's lodge's caretaker (Nick Windebank) hostage to make a real-life horror movie with him at the whelm. Thing is, this is not even the worst thing that happens to Donald's captives ...

 

One can't but love Star Vehicle for its premise already, a slasher movie about the making of a slasher movie. And fortunately, the film grasps the opportunity to fill its story with all sorts of self-irony. But despite its comedic bits, the film doesn't shy away from either gruesomeness or suspense either, and especially the finale is properly tense, only heightened by a very disturbing plot twist. And a slick direction that pays plenty of hommage to old school slashers, and a solid cast this one is one pretty genre trip indeed.
