Rather than crafting a movie that's so bad it's good, writer-director brothers Jason and Brandon Trost have come up with something that's just plain bad -- and boring, and repetitive.

It falls all over itself to lampoon its midnight-movie forebears even as it borrows their contrivances.

The film only embraces the most superficial aspects of the genre. The heart, the soul and the melodrama are all missing.

"The FP" so desperately wants to be cultishly admired for its bad-taste rollout of wacko characters, ugly costumes and vulgar slang that it forgets to be genuinely offbeat or funny.

Tom Keogh
Seattle Times

"The FP" works best as an operatic parody of mixed genres with lunacy on the fringes.

Chris Sawin

Given its low budget, it's amazing "The FP" looks as good as it does. The lighting is superb, the sets highlight its post-apocalyptic atmosphere, and the score ridiculous. "The FP" has cult classic written all over it and it knows it.

You need to find a room full of people who get the joke and see this movie there, because audiences will be laughing so hard they'll be screaming.

Neither obliviously dreadful enough to be "so bad it's good,'' nor intentionally tongue-in-cheek enough to be funny.
