In this dark comedy, a woman fascinated with crime has an unexpected brush with a famous murderer's handiwork. Gabriela (Angela Jones) is a Colombian immigrant living in Miami who has been fascinated with violent death since she saw a falling corpse pass by her window as a child. Today she works for a cleaning service that specializes in mopping up the blood, gore, and bone fragments left behind at crime scenes, and she is tickled to discover one day that she's cleaning up after an execution by her favorite at-large serial murderer, The Blue Blood Killer (William Baldwin), so named because his victims are all wealthy women. But Gabriela doesn't know that the killer is still in the building; he managed to lock himself in the wine cellar while trying to escape, and he is slowly trying to remove the bolts from its lock while Gabriela makes the place livable again. However, while cleaning, she discovers a piece of evidence that could confirm the identity of the killer, just as he's about to emerge from the cellar. Curdled is an expanded version of a short film that director Reb Braddock made in 1991; the short inspired one of the episodes in Quentin Tarantino's film Pulp Fiction, and Tarantino in turn helped produce this feature-length remake, as well as making a cameo appearance. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Tarrentino name can't save this "Black Comedy" by RDana March 18, 2004 - 4:26 AM PST

As interesting as the premise of this movie sounds, the script is so weak that I'm not sure anyone could really make it work...

The cast is good, and it has a nice feel to it that kept me watching to the end, but in the end, it was utterly forgetable.

This little gem cracks me up! It's pretty straightforward in it's pacing and progression so there are no real surprises, but the characters are so much fun! Angela Jones does a fine job as a morbidly curious young "cleaning" lady. I was cheering and chuckling throughout her performance! I just wish it was a little longer...

Quentin Tarantino's Rolling Thunder Pictures
In 1995 Tarantino formed Rolling Thunder Pictures, a production company bringing independent, foreign and exploitation films that he felt should be more readily available. The company closed in 1998 when Miramax pulled support due to poor sales.
