Movie Info

Two luckless stoners begin a truly awful evening when they discover they have a dead girlfriend on their hands in this black comedy from writer and director Allen Moyle. Dexter (Scott Speedman) and Royce (Wes Bentley) are a pair of half-bright slackers living in a nowhere town in Northern Ontario. Dexter and Royce's lack of ambition is compounded by the fact they're both heroin addicts, and they support their habits by dealing dope for Omar (Raoul Bhaneja), a ruthless dealer who's not to be trifled with. Matilda (Taryn Manning), Royce's girlfriend, makes the mistake of dipping into their product one night and suffers a serious O.D.; frightened, Royce and Dexter decide they have to get rid of the body, and Dexter suggests they bury her in the boiler room of a drive-in movie theater where he used to work. The guys take Matilda's body to the drive-in and are about to cover her up when they realize she isn't dead yet; however, their timing is flawed, as this discovery coincides with the arrival of a gaggle of would-be Satan Worshipers, who are looking for a likely candidate for their first human sacrifice. Weirdsville was chosen as the opening night presentation for the 2007 Slamdance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Weirdsville

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (15)

It's wacky, it's zany, it's loopy, it's freaky, it's daffy - but alas, not the most important one, which is "funny".

November 16, 2007 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Allan Moyle's stoner heist movie is a meandering dud.

November 16, 2007 | Full Review…

It's pretty amusing stuff - though it could have been a lot funnier if they had resisted the temptation to shoehorn in quite so many plot twists.

November 16, 2007 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A quirky, amusing caper that shouldn't work, but somehow does.

November 15, 2007 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Director Allan Moyle travels a quirky road too often trod by aspirant indie pics.

November 14, 2007 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The paper-thin characters make it feel less like a rounded feature and more like a TV pilot with the promise of more adventures to come.

Audience Reviews for Weirdsville

Two junkies, who are planning a safe heist to pay off the mobster they owe $8000, clash with Satanists when they interrupt a ritual while burying an overdosed friend. At times this stoned black comedy from the director of PUMP UP THE VOLUME flirts with BIG LEBOWSKI-esque greatness, but some questionable contrivances and forced quirkiness put it in the merely entertaining range.

As the title implies this film is kind of weird, in the same line of comedy as usual suspects. 2 potheads are in debt to a drug dealer, so we have a intertwining story with cults, midgets, and a teenage wanna be. Enjoyable and funny at times. A Canadian Comedy but no more the 3 1/2 stars.

Scott Speedman, Wes Bentley, Taryn Manning, Greg Bryk, Randy Butcher, Matt Frewer DIRECTED BY: Allan Moyle When stoners Dexter and Royce mistakenly assume their friend Matilda has overdosed, they can't call the cops because she's OD'd on stolen drugs. So, they decide to bury her body themselves. Good news is she's not dead. Bad news is she wakes up just in time to interrupt a Satanic cult performing a ritual sacrifice in the same place the guys were going to bury her. Our heroes end up on the run from the Satanists, the drug dealer they stole the stash from, and a gang of angry little people all while trying to pull off a heist of their own. It's one crazy night in one crazy town! The title of this movie totally fits it. It is my kind of movie. I love these off beat movies and all there weird quirks. Loved Wes Bentley in this movie. He was very different from other roles I have seen him in and very funny. The heist to me is the funniest part in the film. I also loved Scott Speedman. Great seeing him do different roles. Just a fun movie with some laughs and some weird situations.
