“On the Lot” — week seven

Otleliroth1_2Why were we not surprised that Kenny would be the one to be most excited about the horror assignment on this week’s episode of “On the Lot?”

“I’m ready to get bloody, bro,” Kenny said to no one in particular as host Adrianna Costa and judge Garry Marshall set this week’s six contenders off to work. This was moments after Costa and Marshall played the part of a two-headed Grim Reaper again by descending on the group of 12 remaining contestants to dispense with the loser of last week’s comedy shorts competition. As most viewers probably surmised, it was bye-bye David May, whose attempt at a sexy rom-com last week fell flatter than “Gigli” with the judges, and apparently, voters. On the other end of the scale, we found out that Will Bigham’s short “Nerve Endings” got the most votes.

As the six up for short-duty this week set off to work, Marshall gave them a few pointers: “Get characters, get pace and have a little gore,” he said, emphasizing little. Then we cut to a confessional clip of Shira-Lee Shalit admitting she never watches horror movies, which only made her stock go up, in our eyes.

Guest judge this week is “Hostel” meister Eli Roth (pictured above), who’s introduced by Adrianna as “the future of horror.”
