Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this horror story liberally laced with comedy, an up-and-coming rock band called the Wiseguys are making their first music video and they are shooting on standing sets at a major Hollywood studio. Some of the world's best-known horror films were shot there and the band and their director plan on milking the spooky ambience for all it's worth. However, it turns out there are more than just pretend scares in store for the band -- it seems a masked murderer is stalking the studio lot, and is re-creating a number of well-known death scenes, with the band and their girlfriends as unfortunate "extras." The Back Lot Murders stars Priscilla Barnes, Corey Haim, Charles Fleischer, and David DeFalco.
