What really made the guys stars were their - music videos and appearances. Dressed head-to-toe in - make-up and lingerie, Dee Snider and his crew made - mini-movies, which were usually slapstick atrocities that - had them spitting in the face (both literally and - figuratively) of whatever authority was around.

How do - we know what evil lurks in their hearts? That's the very - basic premise of the thriller Delivery, shot for - just $6,000. Montgomery Goth is a lonely, depressed - pizza guy with a traumatic past. When a series of events - warps Monty's already-fragile worldview, he starts a - pepperoni-fueled reign of terror all over town. This - could be a typical slasher flick, but director Jose - Zambrano Cassella instead delivers a real, moving - character study of a man pushed to the brink of - loneliness and emerging with a new identity of total - madness. It's also great evidence that we've got some - ultra-low-budget filmmakers who are actually crafting - real films with passion.   Louis Fowler -
