Plot Summary:
"Billy Hughes, a mute makeup artist working on a slasher film being shot in Moscow, is locked in the studio after hours. While there she witnesses a brutal murder, and must first escape capture at that time, then keep from being killed before convincing authorities of what she's seen. Plot twists galore follow as Billy tries to stay alive."

This film showed a lot of promise and I had heard good things about it to boot, so I went in expecting something special and was ultimately disappointed.

The story concerns three Americans making a horror movie in Russia. The special effects artist Billy, is mute. One night, Billy finds herself locked in the studio, and to make matters worse she witnesses a murder. Unable to scream for help or tell anyone what she has seen, Billy has to fight for her life.

The first half of this film was really good. It was dirty, gritty, involving and even had some humour. Where the film went wrong was when Anthony Waller decided to try and make it funny, which is when it became a farce.

The cast were all good, although I was a bit shocked to see British TV star Fay Ripley here, the locations were suitably vile and there were some tense moments.

The film was ultimately ruined by Anthony Waller's ham fisted attempt at trying to alleviate tension with clumsy stooge influenced humour, and clunky sub-plots. He really must get so frustrated watching 'Scream'.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Like most of Anthony Waller's films this showed great promise but was ruined by the addition of an abundance of unnecessary humour.
