This movie is without a doubt of the wall. Totally wacked and wierd, to be more specific. I first saw this ten years ago when I rented it and laughed my ass off. I recently bought it on Amazon and laughed myself into a near heart attack almost a decade later.
If you get a kick out of practical jokes or enjoy tormenting people for your own gratification, then RED should most likely be right up your alley.

For fans of the Tube Bar only. It's quite amusing and Lawrence Tierney gives a great performance as Red. It's cheaply made otherwise which is expected.

Long before Bart Simpson started harassing Moe the Bartender, a phone prankster in New Jersey was badgering the owner of the Tube Bar and making a tape of every word that was said. The tapes were passed from person to person, copied and re-copied and eventually made it into the hands of Chris Gore, editor of Film Threat. This now legendary comedy stars tough guy Lawrence Tierney (from Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs) as Red, the beleaguered booze jockey at the Tube Bar. Tortured beyond human endurance by such telephonic classics as "Is Stu there? Stu Pip?" and "Is Al there? Last name Koholic?" Red quickly falls prey to fantasies involving shotguns, baseball bats and severe bodily injury. This cult classic comes to DVD with a load of extra features sure to make this disc a party favorite.

The 300+ minutes of Special Features include:

* Three Commentaries

* "Unhappy Hour: The Shooting of Red" Behind-the-Scenes Doc

* The Cult of Red

* Tribute to Lawrence Tierney

* Bonus short "Ouch!"

* Closed captioned in 10 languages including English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Portugese, Dutch, Chinese and Japanese.

* Trailers and loads more!

"Red" is one of the those films you have to see at least once in your lifetime. A cult classic that deserves your attention.

The Bum Bar Bastards (Jim Davidson & John Elmo) started prank calling the owner of the Tube Bar, Louis "Red" Deutsch back in 1975. The calls were passed around as a bootleg tape and became famous purely by accident. Today they are legendary and known as the originators of prank phone calls and are unmatched by any other and are pure classic.

Chris Gore got a copy of the tape (before the BBBs came forward) and decided it would make a great short film. It's nice to see the video along w/ the calls (which is unique and rare) and anyone would hold heartedly agree that Legendary Actor "Lawrence Tierney" plays the perfect Red.

This film is rare and hard to find, but has recently been remastered in 16.9 WideScreen and re-released on the Tube Bar 35th Anniversary Tube Bar Prank Calls 35th Anniversary Complete Collection [DVD+CD] Dolby/DTS. If you can find this classic I reccomend buying it.

Director Chris Gore is a dear old pal of mine. I was THERE when he discovered the RED tapes, aka "Tube Bar" tapes. We were both on the set of Tom Savini's remake of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD in 1989, when we were exposed to the bootleg cassette from the guys in the make-up department. We proceeded to devour them, imitate them all day and night, and share them with anyone and everyone we could. One night, we were happily goofing around doing impressions of the tape on the bus that took us back to the hotel we were staying at, when the busdriver started to harass me for cursing and saying all the wonderfully rude RED dialogue. Chris always joked with me that I got in trouble with the busdriver for cursing! Then, a few years later, the [..] goes and makes this film! Well, I still love Chris...and I think his film is a hoot! So will you! It's also great to see Tierney do his angry man routine again...as well as chew on some leg! And do yourself a favor...purchase the original recordings so that the guys who created the prank calls get their fair share. Just google "Tube Bar" and I'm sure you'll see how. They're also available here on amazon by the BUM BAR [..]. Enjoy ya mother****ers, ya c***suck***s!
