A 666-Character Review of ‘Cut Shoot Kill’

Cut Shoot Kill is a small indie horror film about the making of a small indie horror film. Serena, an aspiring actress, reluctantly takes the lead role in a slasher, but starts questioning things when actors seem to disappear from set. It’s a solid premise, but the final product isn’t as satisfying. While the lead performance and effects team shine, the film has other issues. The script is full of logical and emotional leaps, and the editing is sometimes sloppy. Pair those with the film-within-a-film angle, and things get messy. That said, the cinematography is noteworthy if only for maintaining two separate tones throughout; one for the film and one for the film-within. It’s a frustrating experience because the premise and the pieces are here, but they don’t pull together effectively.
