Merv Doody (James Heathcote) is a true horror aficionado. He's seen it all. That's when fate delivers an inept psycho killer to his doorstep. At first, Merv is interested in not getting killed, but then it becomes something more. He must transform this bumbling reject from the local asylum into the ultimate killing machine. Enlisting the aid of his best friend Onkey (Dan Palmer), they set about making the best slasher in the world. Forget Jason and Freddy. They're losers. The man with the spatula (that's right, I said spatula. You wanna make something of it, Sissy?) learns his lessons too well. It isn't long before the man with the hockey mask and orange jumper is carving a path of destruction through the sleepy town of Redwater Cove. Merv and Onkey find that they are the only two who can stop the murderous rampage of their own creation. The only question is how do you destroy an unstoppable machine of utter madness? Written by

I'm not really a big horror fan but I do like my comedy. When I heard about Freak Out, visited the website, saw the trailer etc I got the impression it was gonna be more laughs than senseless butchering and blood. I was right too! This movie is so much fun. If you've seen about two horror movies in your life you'll enjoy it and if you've seen about 1000 horror movies there's tonnes of nods and winks to famous horrors in there (so the person I watched it with told me). I caught a screening of it late last year at a small fest. It is low-budget but better low-budget and actually funny than high budget and absolute trash. I've been reading word on the DVD that will be coming out. That will be a must buy for me...I'm so curious to see how they made it. Recommended.
