The Duplass brothers, the writing/directing team behind The Puffy Chair made this “Mumblecore” horror parody.

The micro-budget film is about four actor friends who go to a secluded cabin for the weekend to write a film that will make them stars. But suddenly their film, a slasher flick about a killer with a bag over his head, is really happening.

It’s an interesting idea, throwing the insecure personalities that make up such films as Funny Ha Ha into the middle of Friday the 13th. Ultimately, the very combination negates the value of its ingredients, namely: scares, laughs and psychological insight. Still it’s an enjoyable, low-key pleasure.
