Synopsis

In this dark comedy based on the classic cult movie A Bucket of Blood, Walter Paisley is a put-upon bus boy at a beatnik café whose greatest dream is to be an artist. When he accidentally kills his landlady's cat, he covers it in clay and passes it off as sculpture. Finding himself an overnight artistic success, Walter feels the pressure to produce more work … and a deadly accident with an undercover cop provides him with a human sculpture and even greater fame. As the police close in and the murders escalate, Walter zeroes in on the girl he loves, determined to make her his wife … or his next sculpture.

Media Reviews

"Tongue-in-cheek postmodernism gets a thorough workout [in this adaptation of] a horror flick that satirized beatnik culture and the modern art world." -Kansas City Star
