Cut: Blunder From Down Under
“I’ve got a clause in my contract that says if I get killed, I get paid extra!” insists Molly Ringwald as the actress re-hired to finish her role in Hot Blooded, a horror film never completed due to the director and lesser life forms dying from gaping knife wounds.
The producers of this overly-derivative Australian slasher flick should hand Molly a check as her incredibly lame performance of a petulant B-movie diva makes you wanna pull a Michael Myers on her.
Film students, looking to complete the cursed horror movie 10 years later, invoke the ire of the masked psycho, who returns to poke acting holes in the thespians with his trusty garden shears.
Heads get chopped off, throats are impaled, and one unfortunate little lady’s twenty-something haircut falls prey to an automatic woodchopper. The only way to stop the unstoppable killer is to destroy the film print because (yawn) “evil was created when it was filmed.”
To say Cut (2000) is tedious is just being nice.
