As is the case with a lot of micro-micro-budget films at the festival, they don't tend to stand up well compared to the rest of the (low-but-not-miniscule-budget) movies.

This personally wasn't my cup of tea, but it did look like everyone had a blast making it.

... And best shower scene of the festival, by a long shot.

Right the low and the micro, no excuses... so micro budget is under £300,000:

Mum and Dad budget: £100,000 (source: director)
I Know How Many Runs: £150,000 (Aus$310,000- on imdb)

so maybe runs isn't as low as it looks?

big nod to mum and dad, didn't enjoy but was surprised at the low budget

so I think it was just bubbas and dead outside that were super micro-low. bubbas was $11000, not sure about dead outside?

was there any other microbudgets?

Don't believe everything you read on IMDB.

This had some really good set pieces but it didn't feel like there was enough of a story to last through a whole film...felt slow in places.

I didn't hate it, but just felt a bit meh at the end (sorry, guys!)
If you cut off my head, what would I say... Me and my head, or me and my body? What right has my head to call itself me?

it was enjoyable fun and a good laugh
i think this and all the other lower budget flms at frightfest all seem to have 1 think in common the people behind the scenes writers/directors they loved making them and love the genre which i think is what came across well
