Oh come on its a cheap tits and ass movie for the after pub crowd,for those daft enough to rent or buy it, mentioning it in the same light as sam raimi's movies or peter jackson's early films is giving this too much credit.stewartguitar wrote:Once again I'm being lazy and copying a review I posted elsewhere, not aimed at the FF cognoscenti. You have to see this film for what it is and not expect too much. I had a great time.
From my FB page:
Not much plot, no really believable characters, not much in the way of subtext, subtlety, themes, or any of the things that movie reviewers like, but I laughed like a loon.
There are some of the most ridiculously gruesome deaths I've ever seen on film, apparently using anything that was lying about, some gratuitous nudity, and diaogue that will cause offence to anyone gay, black, Jewish, male, female or American.
I saw it at Frightfest Glasgow and director Tim Sullivan introduced it with the news that the censors haven't seen it yet, so this cut of the film may never actually make it to any screen anywhere.
What saves it from being awful trash is the jolly mood, the total glee and wit with which victims are dispatched, a certain self-awareness and self-parody, and some very strong comic performances from a cast who were all obviously having a great time.
It comes across as a strange hybrid of nasty exploitative horror, trashy 70s movies from the likes of John Waters and Jess Franco, and the Addams Family. The mood was consistently light, never straying into Fulci-esque voyeuristic gore.
Definitely worth seeing if you're not easily offended and have a strong stomach, and if you liked Braindead and the Evil Dead films.
Don't take your Granny though, in case she gets ideas.
no doubt it will make its money back as its production is as cheap as its humour,but expect this in bargain buckets soon and charity shops as buyers soon discard it.
