When Camilla was a little girl, she wanted to be just like her Broadway-star mother. After the woman was murdered, though, her life took a turn. She grew up with her brother and her mother’s boyfriend, cooking at a drama camp. Now, she’s decided to take a chance and perform among them, despite the bad memories.

Back in May, this movie made my Top 10 Movies to Look Out For article. As a corny b-horror movie fan, I thought the comedy, horror, musical, Meat Loaf, factor would make for an interesting combination. Especially since the last time all those aspects came together we got Rocky Horror Picture Show.

As it turns out, there was some serious cult-following possibility in this movie. Not Rocky Horror level, of course, but not bad. There was lots of music with lots of goofy characters and a solid setting.

It was kind of weird; sometimes in a good way, sometimes not so much. There were very few times during the movie where I felt mediocre about it. Every moment was extreme, either loved or hated.

In the end, I decided that I mostly liked the film. If nothing else, it was hilarious and the mystery was decent.

I would recommend watching it with friends for a better experience.

P.S. If you stick around through the credits, the music is worth a laugh near the end. Listen to the lyrics.
