Storyline

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?

Too funny
3 April 2006 | by (New York, United States) – See all my reviews

An export-worthy British production that has it all. A parodic, slasher flick, Freak Out is a bum load of dirty comedy with doses of gore, death, destruction, mayhem, lunacy, and true love. And who can overlook the homage to Dallas and Queen?

Merv, the geekish psycho thriller fan, and his menacing best friend Onkey, are alluring with their antics and sensibility towards the killer. The killer, clad in an orange jumpsuit and a hockey mask, wields his spatula, speaks with a lisp, and is hilarious! Did I mention this vegetarian has sexy legs?

My favorite parts are of Merv in the shower and Merv at his interview.
