Camp doesn’t come much coarser than David Michael Latt’s “Jane White Is Sick and Twisted,” which could be underground surrealist fun if it weren’t so amateurish. Spilling over with comics like Credibility Gap vet David L. Lander, pic presents a young woman with a bizarre focus on a Jerry Springer-esque talkshow, whose host she believes is her dad. “Jane” will pick up followers on the alternative fest scene and at a few midnight screens fatigued by the 20 millionth unreeling of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

Everything that Jane White (an overactive Kim Little) watches on TV proves to be an unreal adaptation of her non-TV life — from host of “The Gerry Show” (Lander) to her convict penpal Kenny (Mickey Jones). She mistakes Dick (Wil Wheaton) for the escaped Kenny, and encourages him to prove his love for her with some serial killing. Jane tries to do anything, including acting like a transvestite prostitute, to get on Gerry’s show. It all ends better for Jane than for the movie.
