"Better Off Dead" - DVD Synopsis :
TITLE : Better Off Dead
DIRECTOR : Savage Steve Holland
: John Cusack, Kim Darby, Diane Franklin, Curtis Armstrong, Amanda Wyss, Chuck Mitchell, David Ogden Stiers, Scooter Stevens, Aaron Dozier

* Teenage life has never been darker...or funnier...
* You've blown up your neighbor's mom. Your seven-year-old brother has better luck with women than you do. Your girlfriend has a new boyfriend. Relax, you're never... Better Off Dead.
After his girlfriend (Amanda Wyss) ditches him for a boorish ski jock, Lane (John Cusack) decides that suicide is the only answer. However, his increasingly inept attempts bring him only more agony and embarrassment. Filled with the wildest teen nightmares, a family you can't help but identify with and a host of wonderful comic characters, Savage Steve Holland's writing/directorial debut is a masterful look at those painfully funny teen years.

Critic's Comments: "An inventive, oddball gem... lovingly recreates all the worst traumas of teenage life." - The Los Angeles Times

Trivia: Writer / Director Savage Steve Holland says "Better Off Dead" is semi-autobiographical. After his high school love ditched him, he picked up an 8-millimeter camera and made some depressing movies that had the exact opposite effect on his friends - they laughed.
