Film Reviews: Welcome Home 'The Jay Randall Story' (2009) - By Brian Morton
Posted on Friday, January 01, 2010 @ 19:26:41 Mountain Standard Time by Duane

Every year, thousands of people head to the west coast in the hopes of fulfilling their dreams and becoming a big Hollywood star, and, each year most of those people come to realize that it's less than 1% of people who actually become those big stars. That's the basis of the new movie from Jimmy Traynor, Welcome Home 'The Jay Randall Story', and it's part after-school special, part horror movie and all great!

The tale here is of Jay Randall, a small town boy from Baltimore who wants to act, the problem is that he really can't act at all, but, Jay's determined to follow his dreams, so off to Los Angeles he goes, despite his friends and family warning him that 'he'll be back'. Once in LA, Jay realizes that the business of acting is a harsh one, filled with people who will use you for their own ends. Disheartened, Jay reluctantly returns home, only to face the derision that he feared from friends and family. It's only after arguing with his father that Jay has an accident that turns everything on it's head!

Welcome Home 'The Jay Randall Story' is one of the best indie dramas/horror movies of the past year. It's a morality tale turned on it's head, what begins as cautionary tale turns into a slasher movie and then turns into something else, with an ending that's both stunning and inspiring! And, don't just stop the DVD when the credits roll, because Traynor includes outtakes that will leave you laughing...especially the final outtake of the DVD.

I'm giving Welcome Home 'The Jay Randall Story' 4 out of 4 cigars, it's a fun movie that works on many different levels and they're all great! You can find out more and get a copy for yourself by visiting the JPNT Films web page.
