review by
Mike Haberfelner

It's the wrap party of a film fittingly called It's a Wrap, a slasher movie about a killer going around killing people wearing a mask and a blond wig. The party pretty much assembles all the usual suspects who one would expect from such a party, including the egocentric director Mason (Robert Donavan), his actress-past-her-prime wife Lily (Monique Parent), actress Lana (Sarah Polednak), who seems to be too innocent to be true but still ends up having sex with her co-star Carter (Ben Kaplan) in one of the studios, token gay buy Troy (Brandon Patricio), stoner and closet gay Stoney (Steve J. Owens), rich guy Jamie (Adam Bucci), who thinks he can buy his way into an acting career, the final girl of the movie Harper (Sarah French), and several more, all with their quirks and shortcomings. And what's going on at the party is the typical drinking, socializing and back-biting that tends to happen at such an event, and nobody really notices one of the cast is missing, actress Alexis, who was the first victim of the blond-wigged killer in the movie - that's because she has been killed by a blond-wigged killer at the studio after hours just the day before. And of course, the blond-wigged killer is also roaming the studios the wrap party's held at, but all our cast and filmmakers are way too wrapped up in their own agenda to notice until it's much too late ...


Now That's a Wrap's a film that's sure to satisfy your average slasher fan's every need, it has all its suspense and jump scares in all the right places, is gory where it needs to be, and some of the killings are rather inventive even. And of course, hommages to genre classics from giallo cinema to a shower murder scene reminiscent of the one in Psycho are also sure to sit well with the slasher crowd. And yet, the film's more than just that, in fact it feels much more like a showbiz satire dressed up as a slasher more than anything else: For one, there's a meta-level to the proceedings where the events of the film-within-the-film are mirrored in the movie, and then there's several of the actors playing (of course totally superelevated) versions of themselves. Now add to that a solid cast playing a wonderfully colourful cast of relatable characters, and a very stylish, giallo-influenced directorial effort, and you come away with a pretty awesome piece of cinema that's sure to appeal to more than just the slasher crowd.
