What they Say: When Good Buds Go Bad. A “smart, dark and cunning” * horror film by award-winning independent film director Devi Snively, Trippin’ is a refreshingly ironic take on the classic ‘cabin in the woods’ scenario with a generous helping of drugs, sex and gore!
Told from the perspective of the sole survivor, six friends road trip to a remote cabin in the woods with deadly results. A year later, the survivor meets director Devi Snively in a bar and offers the rights to his story for a case of beer and a role in the film. Trippin’ is that film. So prepare yourself for a little sex, a little gore, some good and bad times with some good and bad buds. Think a bloodier The Big Chillfor a Kevin Smith generation…with a puppet!
Available for the first time to home entertainment, Trippin’ is presented with behind-the-scenes material and seven of the director’s acclaimed shorts, including Death in Charge (sponsored by AFI’s Directing Workshop for Women) and Last Seen on Dolores Street (Comic Con 2011 Short Film Showcase).
* Slammed and Damned
What I say: As a regular reader of my sage words of wisdom (Stop laughing!) you know how down I generally am on horror comedies. But writer/director Devi Snively has wrought an often brutal, often hilarious take on the whole party folks roll into the woods and get killed spree. Trippin’ is truly a masterpiece for the 420 generation.
The cast ranges from good to excellent and the writing is very witty and engaging. Director Devi Snively has quite an eye and I enjoyed seeing what she came up with next. The “bad trip” animated sequence is especially well done. The story, while tried and true, is really punched up with wit and style.
This also includes a second disc with several of Ms. Snivelys short films. These are worth the price of admission alone. They are all well done and enjoyable. My personal fave is, of course, I Spit on Eli Roth. It’s nice to see that somewhere out there in the world there is someone that shares my pathological hatred of Eli “Oh yeah! I got blackmail!” Roth.
This is a great little package that I enjoyed a great deal. If you love horror and some righteous bud, this one’s for you!
