Loud, crass redo of Hitchcock’s “Rope,” with what may be the most despicable cast of characters to descend on Las Vegas since Peter Berg’s “Very Bad Things,” writer-director Mark Anthony Galluzzo need expect few bites on this unpleasant exercise in unpleasantness. Pic’s most receptive auds may be cult fan-base that exists around featured player Jason Mewes, here essentially reprising his “Jay” character from Kevin Smith’s movies.

Pic centers on a slacker college student (Rick Otto) with more than a passing interest and criminology and Leopold & Loeb, who decides to throw himself a graduation party in Vegas, with family and friends. The guests (Mewes among them) start disappearing, but not mysteriously. Pic’s conceit is to let us in on the killer’s identity from the get-go; the fun is supposed to be in waiting to see how long it takes everyone else to figure it out, and where the bodies are buried. If only.
