Making a low budget horror film is like taking a wiz – it can either come out bright, satisfying and sparkling, or it’s weak and dull (and, as our party boy readers would know too well); sometimes it even hurts.

You can tell Seth Landau’s been saving up “Bryan Loves You” for a while, because it’s emission is rather unique.

Made with less than what it costs to put a deposit on a house, the innovative independent horror film tells of a therapist who gets a little too involved – “Donne Brasco” not repeated on TV enough these days? – With an Arizona-based cult. The small-town innocent, Jonathan (writer/director Seth Landau), discovers the troupe of twisted’s bow at the imperceptible alter of a dude named ‘Bryan’ – a chap who was murdered by the one man he couldn’t control – who he immediately makes a mockery out of. Bryan, and more noticeably, Bryan’s followers, don’t take too kindly to Jonathan’s remarks and take steps towards unstitching his nicely woven quilt of a life.

Though it features a cast of recognizable B-actors including George Wendt (“Cheers”), Tony Todd (“Candyman”), and Troma chief Lloyd Kaufman, “Bryan Loves You” revels in its thrifty low-budget ways. From the sets to the film stock (its seen through the eyes of a video camera, so they’ve saved a lot of bucks right there; having said that, the execution is terrific) the lack of money has been considered right-up front, and as a consequence, Landau made sure he had an intriguing storyline to keep viewers hooked. That he had. That he does.

“Bryan Loves You” would never have scored a ‘Wes Craven Presents’ moniker above its title… but ya know, these days, that’s a good thing.
