"The Janitor is an independent horror film produced and directed by Andy Signore and TJ Nordaker. The film is about a custodian named Lionel who works at the Generico Corperation building along with his friend and mentor Mr. Growbo. Lionel is treated like crap by his co-workers, and he gets them back by killing them in a brutal way. Lionel gets lucky when he meets a bunch of sorority girls at a bar, and offers him a job. But when Lionel thinks everything is going his way, something happens and now he must get his revenge.
Although this is a horror film, this is also a true comedy at heart. With loveable characters and great dialogue, not to mention fun the T&A! This movie was written very well, and the special make up fx are awesome. If you are a fan blood and gore, then you will definatly enjoy this movie because it is filled with tons and I mean TONS of blood and gore. I think the best word to call it is 'Gorefest!'. This film has decapitations and alot of bone crushing action, not to mention alot of ripped off body parts. The film starts and ends well. The film isnt slow paced, and the way everything runs seems perfect. Which is good news to all of you with short attention spans. The characters in this movie are awesome. I really didn't have much of a problem with the acting since most of the performances were good. In this situation the good definatly outweighs the bad.
Andy Signore plays the leading role as Lionel, the big killer in the movie. Although Lionel has a bad temper and tends to kill everyone who treats him badly, he is also a sympathetic character. Bruce Cronander co-stars as Mr. Growbo, the character in the film who is also a custodian. He is like a father figure to Lionel. Fiona MacIntyre plays Lionel's love interest in the film. Skip Pipo plays the role of Page, the FBI Agent who is in search of the "killer". Agent Page is my favorite character in the movie. Hes the kind of guy that doesn't get a clue, hes pretty much the idiotic character in the movie. Hes one of the big comic relief characters which had me laughing alot. Another great character in the film is Lionels boss, who happens to be a man obsessed with STD's (hahaha). I loved the dialogue in this film. Like I said before this film is very well written, and the dialogue is filled with smart jokes and alot of fun sexual humor.
This film is definatly a comedy at heart. The dialogue is funny, some of the characters are funny, but also some of the bloody situations are just pretty damn hilarious. I swear I clapped throughout the entire film. It gives you the same feeling when you watch one of Peter Jacksons old films. Over the top gore mixed with smart comedy. I also like the fact that this movie is different from all the other stuff we have been seeing lately. With big budget movie companies nowadays, its hard to come up with something new and original. Which is why we are seeing more and more remakes. This movie definatly shows that there still is room for new ideas. Maybe those big budget companies should pay more attention to the Independent film makers. I definatly appreciate the indpendent genre and I hope that in the near future more indie films turn out more like this one. So yeah when it comes to the comedy and gore, its all great. The gore and sexual humor should please any hardcore horror fan.
Oh man did I have a ball watching this movie. From beginning to end its very entertaining. The Janitor is smart, funny, grotesque and is something every horror fan should see. If you haven't seen it yet then I highly recommend that you pick it up. Gather with some friends and have a small party cuss this is a great, fun and very enjoyable independent film. If you like your horror mixed with humor, then you wont feel cheated with this movie."

"This movie is a must see!! For anyone that enjoys a healthy mix of humor, blood, guts, boobies, disembowelment and appendages being ripped off, buy it now! The filmmakers do an excellent job of hiding the fact that they were on a tight budget. The effects are on par, if not better than some of the best indy film has to offer. The filmmakers also do double duty by starring in the film. John as Willis is hilarious, Andy as Lionel is perfect, and TJ's cameo gets a really good laugh. Speaking of cameos, Lloyd Kaufman (you know, the TROMA guy!) has a great running joke in the film.
With a feature length documentary, deleted scenes, alternate ending, drunken commentary, and the original short film that inspired the movie, this disc is packing a ton of features for the price. Like I said before, Buy It Now!!!"

"I don't know how anyone couldn't like this movie. That is, unless your idea of a good horror movie is "Scream."
I was in a unique position while watching this movie. I am a huge gore fan, a filmmaker, and a former part-time janitor. As a gore fan, I enjoyed seeing all the obviously fake blood and guts being sprayed everywhere. As a filmmaker, I could appreciate how hard these guys had to work to put together this film on a shoestring budget. And as a former janitor, I loved seeing a fellow custodian murdering all the jerkwads that ticked him off.
And on top of that, this movie is hilarious. The script, the performances, the subject matter, and the guest appearance by Troma's Lloyd Kaufman...all hilarious. Even if you don't appreciate the cinematic genius that is "The Janitor," at least you'll find it funny. I showed it to a group of mainstream movie fans, and they all loved it.
I rented this movie from NetFlix a few days ago, and immediately bought it after watching it. I can't wait for their next movie to come out, and according to Andy Signore (I emailed him to tell him how great it was), it sounds like it's going to be another winner.
Give this movie a chance. Help some really talented filmmakers continue making amazing movies."
