After reading on IMDB that HRZ was originally a 20 minute short film, it all makes perfect sense. Let’s face it, HRZ doesn’t have a lot to offer. It’s a drag and a damn mess. I know you’ll be tempted to see the whole film and I just cannot recommend that. I cut 90 minutes for a reason.
This movie is completely off its rocker (badmovies.org has a great review here). The attempt at comedy is painful. I guess they were trying to do a hard rock Monkees horror film. I just don’t know. BUT…
The love story…. is… awesome! The lead singer, Jessie, is tired of the groupies and the meaningless hand jobs. He wants to feel something real… real young. Jessie falls for a girl named Cassie who is half his age (and he’s in his mid-twenties)! And Cassie is not a young girl dolled up to look older. Cassie wears white overalls and rocks a ponytail. So, you get a 15 year old who actually looks 8! It’s the creepiest part of the movie.
Their love is a forbidden love. And this mini mix dives deep to explore their never ending bond. And the love theme, “Cassie’s Song” is actually a great pop song (seriously).
Here’s a YouTube version as well.
