Macabre? A bit. Scary? Not really. Funny? You bet!
25 August 1999 | by (ImpossibleToPleaseThirtySumthings) – See all my reviews

I don't think this flick was that bad. I rather enjoyed watching it to be honest. Witty dialogue. Hillbilly humor. And although the actors are pretty unknown they all pull it off quite nicely. Especially the narrator does a great job. Creepy! ;)

Like he cleverly points out: "In the end everyone gets what they deserve." I think this movie wasn't even meant to be taken seriously. It's just fun to watch because you can never know exactly what's going to happen next. And that's refreshing for a change. ;)
