SYNOPSIS: A biting, social satire of reality TV and the glorification of those who are “famous for being famous,” L.A. SLASHERtakes aim at the current state of the entertainment industry, where it is acceptable (and even admirable) to gain influence and wealth without merit or talent – but instead through shameful behavior, and the notoriety that comes from it. Driven to rage over the tawdry excess of reality television, a self-appointed cultural crusader kidnaps several famous nobodies to make his point – but his crimes only generate more tabloid frenzy.
MY THOUGHTS: Having had my damn fill of the Kardashians, Honey Boo-Boo and the Duck Dynasty crew, this was a refreshing and timely horror/comedy hybrid that I recommend. The direction and cinematography is fresh and the cast really skirts the line between reality and unreality. L.A. Slasher debuted in a limited theatrical release on June 26th.
