Review

Incredibly reminiscent of the first time you saw one of PETER JACKOSN or SAM RAIMI's first audacious pics... It's nightmarishly gory, comically sadistic and has to be seen to be believe! --Smiln' Jack Ruby, creature-corner.com

The Janitor is an independent horror film produced and directed by Andy Signore and TJ Nordaker. The film is about a custodian named Lionel who works at the Generico Corperation building along with his friend and mentor Mr. Growbo. Lionel is treated like crap by his co-workers, and he gets them back by killing them in a brutal way. Lionel gets lucky when he meets a bunch of sorority girls at a bar, and offers him a job. But when Lionel thinks everything is going his way, something happens and now he must get his revenge.

Although this is a horror film, this is also a true comedy at heart. With loveable characters and great dialogue, not to mention fun the T&A! This movie was written very well, and the special make up fx are awesome. If you are a fan blood and gore, then you will definatly enjoy this movie because it is filled with tons and I mean TONS of blood and gore. I think the best word to call it is 'Gorefest!'. This film has decapitations and alot of bone crushing action, not to mention alot of ripped off body parts. The film starts and ends well. The film isnt slow paced, and the way everything runs seems perfect. Which is good news to all of you with short attention spans. The characters in this movie are awesome. I really didn't have much of a problem with the acting since most of the performances were good. In this situation the good definatly outweighs the bad.

Andy Signore plays the leading role as Lionel, the big killer in the movie. Although Lionel has a bad temper and tends to kill everyone who treats him badly, he is also a sympathetic character. Bruce Cronander co-stars as Mr. Growbo, the character in the film who is also a custodian. He is like a father figure to Lionel. Fiona MacIntyre plays Lionel's love interest in the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blood, Guts & Cleaning Supplies August 2, 2005
Format:DVD
This movie is a must see!! For anyone that enjoys a healthy mix of humor, blood, guts, boobies, disembowelment and appendages being ripped off, buy it now! The filmmakers do an excellent job of hiding the fact that they were on a tight budget. The effects are on par, if not better than some of the best indy film has to offer. The filmmakers also do double duty by starring in the film. John as Willis is hilarious, Andy as Lionel is perfect, and TJ's cameo gets a really good laugh. Speaking of cameos, Lloyd Kaufman (you know, the TROMA guy!) has a great running joke in the film.

With a feature length documentary, deleted scenes, alternate ending, drunken commentary, and the original short film that inspired the movie, this disc is packing a ton of features for the price. Like I said before, Buy It Now!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The One You've Been Waiting For December 23, 2005
Format:DVD
Once in a great while you discover a movie that totally redeems your faith in independent low budget horror movies. Some examples from my personal past are the original TROMA classic The Toxic Avenger, Peter Jackson's Bad Taste, Trey Parker's Cannibal The Musical, and (a lesser known, underappreciated, but equally as entertaining) Gorman Bechard's Psychos in Love. I can remember the first time I saw each of them. All original ideas with real passion behind them, you could tell that every cent of the budget was right up there on the screen. You really knew you were seeing something special and you couldn't wait to have the one friend of yours who could REALLY appreciate your particular taste in movies over to show off your new discovery, then quoting the dialogue at inappropriate times for weeks, even months later. How about a pretzel? "Mmm...salty!"

You blind buy a movie cause the box looks cool, or has a catchy title, or the plot synopsis on the back makes it sound like no self-respecting horror fan would be caught dead without this movie in their collection, only to put it up on amazon a day later in hopes of getting a fraction of what you paid for it back. I'd say a good 99 times out of 100 that's the case. There's a lot of garbage out there in the horror DVD market, it only makes sense that a film called The Janitor would rise above it.

All the usual marketing bait is there. The box cover sucks you right in, bloody red lettering, a maniacal Lionel (the title character) waving a torn off arm above his head, and scantily clad women aplenty. Janitors are typically creepy fellows who all look capable of mass homicide (show me one who isn't, I'll show you ten who are...hey, prove me wrong!).

5.0 out of 5 stars great movie - give it a chance! September 27, 2005
By F4LL0U7
Format:DVD
I don't know how anyone couldn't like this movie. That is, unless your idea of a good horror movie is "Scream."

I was in a unique position while watching this movie. I am a huge gore fan, a filmmaker, and a former part-time janitor. As a gore fan, I enjoyed seeing all the obviously fake blood and guts being sprayed everywhere. As a filmmaker, I could appreciate how hard these guys had to work to put together this film on a shoestring budget. And as a former janitor, I loved seeing a fellow custodian murdering all the jerkwads that ticked him off.

And on top of that, this movie is hilarious. The script, the performances, the subject matter, and the guest appearance by Troma's Lloyd Kaufman...all hilarious. Even if you don't appreciate the cinematic genius that is "The Janitor," at least you'll find it funny. I showed it to a group of mainstream movie fans, and they all loved it.

I rented this movie from NetFlix a few days ago, and immediately bought it after watching it. I can't wait for their next movie to come out, and according to Andy Signore (I emailed him to tell him how great it was), it sounds like it's going to be another winner.

Give this movie a chance. Help some really talented filmmakers continue making amazing movies.

3.0 out of 5 stars certainly interesting
Movie certainly has plenty of gore. The nudity is not very sexy, but the overall concept is very good. Worthy of watching, but not high-tech effects.
