Dave Foley Finds the Funny in AIDS, Abortion, and Glenn Beck

There isn’t much to recommend The Strip, a new indie movie that opened in select theaters last weekend. The comedy about minimum wage employees at a strip mall is practically begging for comparisons with the cult hit Office Space but actually comes across like a less funny Employee of the Month. The Strip would be guaranteed a spot in the dustbin of late-night cable if it wasn’t for a surprisingly touching performance by Dave Foley. Foley plays the middle-aged manager of Electri-City, an electronics store in a desolate, possibly Californian strip mall. His character is a caricature at best, but there are flashes of genius in Foley’s performance. When an Electri-City employee violently shakes one of Foley’s collectible snow globes, Foley becomes flustered by the unexpected chaos. “Why don’t we wait for this to settle,” he says, apparently needing the flakes to settle down before he can think clearly.

Scary ‘Supermax’ picked up by Sony Pictures

  • Reel Loop
Make-up luminary Christopher Allen Nelson and Employee of the Month scribe Mitch Rouse have teamed up to pen Supermax, a horror story based on the ghostly and presumably murderous criminals that populate a maximum-security prison. A lone prison guard must team-up with an inmate after a violent riot occurs in the jail sending the duo into a fight against an “army of monsters.”

The story was picked up on spec by Sony Pictures according to Bloody Disbusting.

Shooting is set to begin in 2010 with a 2011 release.

Don’t confuse this Supermax with the Justin Marks Supermax which focuses on a prison for supervillians.
