Litmus: A Surfing Odyssey (1996) "I wish that when they asked us: 'What is surfing?' I would have said it's a spiritual activity, and not just a sport, because that's what put us on the wrong track..." ~ Nat Young "The Riders, the boards, the places, the ruminations...
Litmus was easily the finest surf film of it's decade." ~ Scott Hulet, The Surfer's Journal Features: Derek Hynd, Wayne Lynch, Tom Curren, Joel Fitzgerald

A killer known as Ghostface begins killing off teenagers, and as the body count begins rising, one girl and her friends find themselves contemplating the 'rules' of horror films as they find themselves living in a real-life one.
With his gangster boss on trial for murder, a mob thug known as "the Teacher" tells Annie Laird she must talk her fellow jurors into a not-guilty verdict, implying that he'll kill her son Oliver if she fails.
When Ashtray (Shawn Wayans) moves to South Central L.A. to live with his father (who appears to be the same age he is) and grandmother (who likes to talk tough and smoke reefer), he falls in with his gang-banging cousin Loc Dog (Marlon Wayans), who along with the requisite pistols and Uzi carries a thermo-nuclear warhead for self-defense.
