Hi all, I'm a Brit living in Canada, and saw this film on the recommendation of a friend still in the UK. Talk about hard to get hold of! I started watching it on a couple of occasions, hindered by a 10 year old and a wife who is not keen on horror. From the few runs through the first 20 minutes, I was not mad-keen on watching the rest of the film.
I was wrong - I've watched it start to finish 3 times in the last week. It's good. It's rough, but it's good. The humour is coarse, the violence is excessive and the effects are technically limited, by today's standards, but it works well.
The 'good guys' don't come out of it well, but who cares? They're the sort of folks you'd happily not widdle on if they were on fire. I know a lot of folks crippled by the idea that films, and life, should be nice & end happily. We need more dark humour!
