HA! My kind of FUN!
21 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not quite the seamless bit of work that Band displayed with "Head Of The Family", but a worthy satirical hoot with much of the same cast. Once again, the fanboys of goreporn can't see how this is horror, but maybe someday they'll grow out of their obsession with guts, grime, and films that look like they're shot in King Kong's colon. Perhaps the portrayal of perverse, obsessive, doctrinaire collectors of horrific medical oddities cuts a little close to the bone for their comfort. J. Lovell's hijack scene is one of the best riot-girl moments of cinematography. Take that, Suicide Girls! In fact all the women here chew up the scenery like it's a cocaine laced Cinnabun. The oddball premise delivered, it becomes a deranged take on drawing room murder mysteries and haunted house extravaganzas. The ensemble cast ping-pong one liners off each other with aplomb, as the quite ridiculous collectibles go about their quest for...respect? Freedom? Who knows? This is a flick about subverting expectations, and it carries that goal off better than many an effort by David Lynch. Take a deep breath, loosen your funny bone, and enjoy the ride. Don't worry, you'll be able to return to the comfort of torture and entrails soon. HAR!
