THE BACKLOT MURDERS (2001) ** ½

A rock band is filming a video on the Universal Studios back lot.  A killer in an over exaggerated Elvis mask is picking them off one by one.  Who could it be?  The bitchy manager (Three’s Company’s Priscilla Barnes)?  Or the psycho ex-bassist?  Or perhaps that fired production assistant?  The setting puts this flick a notch or two above most slasher flicks.  Murders take place in front of the sets for The Lost World, The Hunchback of Norte Dame and the Psycho house.  (One bimbo asks:  “Is that the one with Anne Heche?)  Charles (the voice of Roger Rabbit) Fleischer plays the gay director who gets all the best lines.  “You girls have assets.  So move your ass and your sets!”   Also starring Corey Haim as a band member.  The deaths include a rip-off to the impaling from Twitch of the Death Nerve, Columbian neck ties, and nuts locked into a C-Clamp.  And, oh yeah, the only black character gets killed first.
