Starring Dominic "Primeval" Purcell and Henry "The Count Of Monte Cristo" Cavill, written by a first timer, and featuring a plot involving Nazis and the occult. And if that's not enough of a Razzie pedigre, guess who's directing?

Response from Head RAZZberry: In case Schumcher8ter's Forum nom de plume isn't enough of a clue as to who's directing TOWN CREEK, here's a LINK to the film's IMDb page to see for yourself...

Schumacher's got 2 other movies coming out this year called "1:30 Train" and "The Crowded Room". Here's the plots from IMDB: "1:30"-A young woman in New York City races to catch the 1:30 Train to Boston. On the way she is robbed. She is lost in the dark underbelly of New York at night with nothing and no one. and "Room"-The true story of Billy Milligan, who developed twenty-four different personalities during his horrific childhood, and who would go on to commit several robberies and rapes. I'm not sure if "The Crowded Room" will be Razzable, but "1:30 Train" sounds bad.

Given that we're talking about Schumacher, the quality of any of these upcoming releases could potentially be Razzable. He has a knack for taking decent material and turning it into lame motion pictures (e.g. The Phantom of the Opera, the Batman franchise). And if The Number Twenty-Three is any indication he also seems to be at a phase in his career where his contempt for his audience has gotten to the point that it's keeping him from choosing his scripts with any kind of discrimination, anyway.

I'll end this post with a quote from film critic Nick Schager, taken from his review of The Number Twenty-Three "welcome back to the cinema of Joel Schumacher, in which cheesy narrative nonsense combines with visual gibberish and loads of overacting to create a turgid genre stew so thick with absurdity it's hard not to choke with laughter."

That's him all right.  It's no surprise then that St. Elmo's Fire, perhaps the one time he did break to a degree with his compulsions (albeit still remaining shackled by asking far too much from his actors), has probably aged worse than any other 80s teen film.
