Why haven’t we seen more of Wes Bentley since American Beauty? As the goofy Scooby-Doo to Scott Speedman’s Shaggy, he’s clearly enjoying himself in this druggie black comedy, as one of two addicts who stumble across a Satanic ritual killing while burying their OD’d girl Friday (Taryn Manning) at a drive-in. Half-funny and half-obvious, Weirdsville gets a little tiresomely silly (the army of little people in medieval warfare gear is overload), but Bentley still has a glare that burns through metal, and his rapport with Speedman is agreeable.
