Crazy Kung-Fu/Gore/Cannibal/Comedy Hybrid...
20 February 2006 | by (St. John's Abortion Clinic) – See all my reviews

WE'RE GOING TO EAT YOU is definitely one of the stranger films I've seen in a while...and honestly one of the more enjoyable. It's a very strange hybrid of kung-fu action, cannibal horror, and comedy - with some really off the wall scenes, and some decent gore.

This one has a special government agent (known as agent 999) who goes to a remote island village to track down and arrest a notorious thief. Turns out the villagers are all cannibals who dine on unsuspecting visitors. Gore and hilarity ensue early on as our hero has numerous misadventures with the local townspeople which include various freaks, crazed mask-wearing butchers, a giant transvestite, and the towns chief

  • a greedy dick who hordes all the "meat" for himself and his security


team, leaving almost nothing for the townspeople to live on.

This could have been a really dark film considering the subject matter, but WE'RE GOING TO EAT YOU is intentionally handled as a comedy with all sorts of goofiness to lighten the film - including the insatiable transvestite that doesn't take "no" for an answer, and a hilarious kung-fu segment involving roller-skates and fire-crackers. Many cross-genre films don't really work - but WE'RE GOING TO EAT YOU pulls it off. A great Sunday afternoon diversion - especially with a few drinks in ya...8/10
