Wow, a horror comedy that's actually good
26 September 1998 | by See all my reviews

Blimey. This one turned out to be a real surprise! Its got a half decent story, characters you care about, nice make up effects. It's scary, isn't overly gory, the funny bits never get in the way of the serious stuff. What a film!
