Movie Info

Horror Movie: A Low Budget Nightmare is a 'fly on the wall' style documentary that follows a filmmaker's attempt to live out a childhood dream by making a super-low-budget horror feature, about an aborted foetus that seeks revenge on its family. Tired of playing roles like the 'diabetes patient' or the 'weird friend' on Australian TV, actor/filmmaker Craig Anderson sets his sights on a career upgrade. With his and his brother's life savings on the line, he manages to sign up Hollywood 'scream queen' Dee Wallace (E.T., Cujo, The Howling) to star in the film, but it is not long before things go wildly off the rails and his big dream turns into a nightmare. With the budget spiralling out of control, union issues and even a circumcision to overcome, we follow this hilarious, moving and nail-biting rollercoaster journey from pre-production to the very end.

Critic Reviews for Horror Movie: A Low Budget Nightmare

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Anderson is disarmingly frank, talking openly not just about his frustrations and self-doubt as a filmmaker, but also about his physical discomfort from a recent circumcision.

A Low Budget Nightmare has heart and sincerity to spare.

Genuinely inspirational and consistently hilarious, Horror Movie is a charming but practical look at the absurd difficulties of making a feature film yourself.

There is added poignancy with the reflections of a real life Down Syndrome actor who provides a heartfelt desire to feel a part of the world, regardless of whether he is an actor or not and he provides some of the funniest moments.
