What are people saying?

  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Destroyer

    Amusing slasher film with game performances, including Psycho's Anthony Perkins, and Clayton Rohner and Deborah Foreman (Chaz and Muffy/Buffy in the 1986 slasher-comedy April Fool's Day.) Lyle Alzando has a fun presence as the villain, and Jim Turner turns in stoner-fun, too. Destroyer is amateur in production and is by-the-numbers in slash, but the sense of tongue-and-cheekiness makes it a quasi-amusing bad film.
