The Portal, made in 2010, with Michael Madsen, Stacy Keach, Roddy Piper - How bad could it be? I should have known by the trailers before the movie, they were absolutely horrendous. Porno production values and acting. Unfortunately, The Portal was the same way. TURRIBLE acting. Camera angles that were WAY TOO CLOSE.
Editing, continuity, everything was off and seemed like all the scenes were done in one take. It was a crack up.
One scene, in particular, shows the level of proffessionalism in the move. One of the gals in peril is working late at her big office building. After a horendously akward scene with a coworker hitting on her, even though her boyfriend had just died do to his head mysteriously exploding, she decides to use the restroom to freshen up. She goes in a typical womens restroom with a handful of sinks etc. This is not a multi gender restroom. There she gets terrorized by the ghoul of the movie and runs screaming out of the restroom to the building security guard. Here is where it gets funny. He goes into the bathroom with billy club out to check on the ladies report. All serious. Opening stall doors etc. Across from the stalls he is checking, and plainly visible, are a half a dozen urinal stalls. They shot the security guard scene in the MENS bathroom.
The movie is filled with this stuff...
