Look out Peter Jackson
If you want to see what Peter Jackson was doing 30 years ago, check out Dead Alive. With Feeding Mr. Baldwin, Director Will Prescott shows us the same caliber of humor and timing that gave Jackson his start. The dark comedy features great characters and solid acting. FMB will make you laugh out loud (something that's hard to find in low-budget movies).
I wouldn't be surprised to see Dalton Leeb and Anil Margsahayam back together in a sequel. At times you get the feeling that they're channeling Harold and Kumar. Christopher Duncan is great as Lance Bryant, self-made egomaniac who lines his shelves with his own book. He rails against success-suckers (i.e., leeches like the neighborhood kids who sell Girl Scout Cookies and will success-suck you dry.)
There are twists, turns, and surprises. The gore, by the way, isn't all that bad. Enjoy!
