An indie horror film with an edge, SEVERE INJURIES marks Amy Lynn Best's feature directorial debut. Best is a triple threat as lead actress, director, and producer, building on her experience directing, producing and starring in low-budget horror films with husband and collaborator Mike Watt. Fans of 1980s slasher films will find much humor in this film, which makes references to slasher classics like FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 4 and SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE. Adding a subversive twist to the exploitative male-dominated horror genre, Best's film pokes fun at the film's central villain. Melvin Hubble is the youngest in a long lineage of incompetent serial killers. Trying to grant his father's dying wish, Melvin finds his way into a sorority house on the night of a big bash, but fails to terrorize the girls, as they are completely unfazed by his presence. Though Melvin and the girls don't know it, he is in for some competition, as there is another killer on the loose. Best exhibits a good sense of comic timing in this parody of the fun, but inherently misogynistic horror genre.
