Weirdsville

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Wes Bentley, Scott Speedman, Taryn Manning; Director: Allan Moyle; Author: Willem Wennekers; Runtime (in minutes): 90; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Magnolia Pictures

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.
