Don't miss this, providing you think irony isn't like coppery and tinny...
27 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I get really amused by the reviews from people who think this is a serious film - please grow up, people!

A real tongue in cheek remake of a 50's B Movie, the sort of thing Rodrigues and Tarantino did later with Planet Terror, but this was WAY before that. Wonderful one liners and parodies of the fifties, loved the catering wagon with "Arkoff & Corman" on the side, a great tribute to the masters of the 50's B Movie genre. Loved it, Daryl Hannah is wonderful but so are the whole cast,the sleazy husband, uncaring father and the beautician mistress with the interchangeable hair ( a different wig in every scene) are classic characters you'll recognise immediately. looks like they really had fun making this. Well worth your time, don't forget the popcorn!
