Los Angeles is a dreamer’s paradise, where people with visions of stardom flock to follow in the footsteps of matinee idols. But, if you want to make it in a savage town like L.A., you need that killer instinct—and the Winters brothers have just enough gumption necessary to branch out and make their own way. A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO SNUFF is the black black black, like the blackest, comedy of black comedies about trying to shoot your own horror film in a town where the more real something is, the better. Of course, horror movies get made every day. So in order to make their film more real, Dresden and Dominic decide to simply film the actress they cast as the victim without her knowing she’s actually in a film. Unfortunately, the bumbling brothers cast the wrong Hollywood starlet wannabe as she proves that maybe the audition process needs some retooling. A hilarious concept that combines the tension of “The Game” with the comedy of early Coen brothers, A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO SNUFF is sure to knock your socks off … and maybe a few of your limbs. –T.W.
