Original Title:

Rough Cut

Although occasionally self-consciously arty, this is a mostly engaging behind-the-scenes account of the remaking of Hiker Meat, a film that only ever existed as a 120-shot audiovisual outline compiled from sampled clips from 1980s horror movies. Ambitious, assured and amusing.

An engaging experiment in lo-fi filmmaking.
