Killer Movie is a 2008 horror-comedy film starring Paul Wesley, Kaley Cuoco, and Gloria Votsis. The film centers around a reality TV show crew that is murdered one by one while making a horror movie in a remote town. The movie begins with a cast of quirky contestants vying for a role in a horror movie on the reality TV show, "Bye Bye Baby". The show's director, Jake Tanner (Paul Wesley), is a sleazy opportunist who is more interested in making a hit film than looking after his team's safety. The team sets out to make the horror movie in a small town called Doddsville, where they are met with a few unfriendly locals.
As the cast and crew begin filming the movie, Jake's girlfriend and co-star, Blanca Champion (Gloria Votsis), is found dead in a gruesome manner. The crew initially thinks it's a prank, but as the body count rises, they realize that there is a real killer lurking among them. Jake becomes obsessed with capturing footage of the murders, and the reality show continues filming despite the danger.
The film is a blend of horror and comedy, as the characters often respond to the murders with black humor. The deaths are outrageously gruesome, reminiscent of classic horror films, but the tone is lightened by the characters' reactions. As the murders mount, the crew members become increasingly suspicious of one another, and the tension rises.
Kaley Cuoco plays the role of Blanca's replacement, struggling actress and former child star (Lucky), whose past has left her particularly vulnerable. She begins a romantic relationship with the town's sheriff, played by Leighton Meester, whose suspicions are raised when many of the townspeople seem to be lying about their whereabouts on the night of each murder.
As the body count continues to rise, Jake becomes more and more consumed by capturing the perfect footage of the murders. He pushes his cast and crew to their limits, even when they try to convince him to stop filming and focus on surviving. Meanwhile, Lucky and the sheriff grow closer as they try to figure out who the killer is, and why he or she is targeting the "Bye Bye Baby" crew.
The film has a surprising twist ending, revealing the identity of the killer and their motive. It turns out that the killer had an unexpected connection to one of the contestants on the reality show. The film also nods to the obsessions of the culture of reality television, as the murders are allowed to continue for the sake of ratings and entertainment.
Overall, Killer Movie is a fun and bloody horror-comedy with a solid cast and an interesting storyline. It blends humor and horror successfully, making it a unique entry in the horror movie genre. The film provides plenty of scares and shocks, but it also has an underlying commentary on the darker side of reality TV and its impact on society.
Killer Movie is a 2008 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.4.
