The cleverest, funniest, sharpest most Meta horror ever is a continual genre buff’s delight. Watch in gleeful shock as delusional crowd-funder Herbert Blount (an extraordinary Penn Jillette) creates his own ‘Director’s Cut’ out of KNOCKED OFF, the Adam Rifkin crime thriller you never saw. By recutting, splicing newly shot amateur scenes into the narrative with kidnapped star Missi Pyle, making up another plot and commenting on other actors and scenes in voiceover, the madman thinks he’s creating a unique masterpiece. Which director Rifkin has with this stunning tour-de-force that becomes a hugely enjoyable sly satire of the entire entertainment industry.
