Killjoy (2000)
Review by Michael Mahoney

4 / 10
If you've seen this flick, you know what a mess it is. But if you've watched it with friends, you also know what a hoot it can be.

I first saw this film for one of the October Challenges, watching it with a friend. Though the movie was atrocious in so many ways (acting, production value, audio quality), it was a fun time. Upon rewatching it, it still has that fun vibe, but it's deeply muted.

I won't waste time discussing the acting - in almost every way, the actors manage to fail, which admittedly is a bit of a feat. The story itself, while somewhat interesting, gets muddled down due to over melodramatic moments and a slow beginning. When things do pick up, it doesn't much help, as Killjoy isn't that fun a character. Basically, I just kept getting the mentally-challenged Pennywise-vibe from him. That said, an ice cream truck that can teleport you various places is sort of fun.

As for the audio quality, it's not uncommon throughout the film that you're unable to make out what someone's saying. I don't think it's the fault of the DVD I own - I think it's the best print they had to work with. The kills aren't all that imaginative, and when they are, they include hideous early 2000's computer effects. Can Killjoy be a fun movie in small doses when viewed among friends? Indeed. But it doesn't really hold up with a second viewing, and overall, you can't help but tell how poor of a movie it really is.
