Harry Penderecki (David Naughton) was once a legend of the Horror genre. His string of hits included Bowel Movement, People Pesticide, and I'll Take the Ring Back and the Finger Too. Unfortunately he is now considered a has-been by most of Hollywood - including his closest friends. Deciding to make a comeback, Penderecki attempts to make what he hopes to be his final masterpiece - Brutal Massacre.
This is his last chance - and it will either make or break him. This mock documentary follows Harry and his crew as they try to reassert his past genius despite the many, many, many unfortunate incidents of bad luck plaguing the project. With his sanity hanging on by a thread, and the funding likely to fall through at any moment, Harry is determined to find himself back at the top - or die trying.
Brutal Massacre: A Comedy is a 2007 release combining the genres of comedy and horror. Directed and written by Stevan Mena, who also directed Malevolence upon which several parts of Brutal Massacre are based. Running for a total of 94 minutes this film stars David Naughton(An American Werewolf in London), Brian O'Halloran (Clerks), Gerry Bednob(Zack and Miri Make a Porno), and Gunnar Hansen (Texas Chainsaw).
Based in part on several real life events according during the filming of Malevolence, this movie is in the vein of Spinal Tap and acts as a mock "backstage" documentary. Considered a cult classic (in part due to it's lack of exposure) it has won the Festival Prize for Best Director at the Long Island International Film Expo. Brutal Massacre is rated R for frequent adult language, some instances of sexuality or nudity, and for having several scenes featuring violent imagery.
