    The Your Name Here Story


    So, you are an advertising company. You make a lot of "Industrial Films". You notice literally ALL of them are the same. With all that awesome stock footage, don't you ever get the bright idea that you should just cut down the paperwork and scripting and filming and editing and produce ONE commercial that covers EVERY PRODUCT EVER MADE?

    And mind you, this thing was made in 1960, and I can tell you that as far as commercials go, there's…

    So the premise is "what if laws were not in effect for one night - who's going to murder who?"
    ...the implementation is "some guys menace a rich guy and are going to break in and kill the whole family. For reasons."

    As a paint-by-numbers low-budget horror/dystopian scifi film, it's an okay job - nothing stellar, but sufficiently creepy for one watchthrough.
