Bad transitions, embarrassing match cuts, supreme zooms, focal disaster, inexistent lighting; nothing works in this film. Tim Ritter, screenwriter and director, is telling two stories at once. The first story is about a man believing his wife cheats on him and killing everyone he suspects. The second story, I won't spoil, involves the paranormal. This 180 degree twist almost redeems the movie.
Our protagonist is a notorious cuckold who won’t let her wife leave the house or get a job, who likes to take long walks on the beach to punch random strangers in the face and who has jealous wet nightmares too graphic to be described with words. He’s paranoid and permanently pissed by everything and everyone. Like his hairdo, the man is out of control.
The puns are so grotesque and lame they will make you grind your teeth. All performances are horrendous. The editors visibly struggled with the audio. The framing of subjects is illogical. There are several plot holes. It is hard to believe nobody during the development addressed the fact that the protagonist is the bad guy and that only psychopaths could relate to him. What a terrible movie!
