Surprisingly fun genre hybrid starring Edgar Allan Poe's favorite descendant.
23 April 2009 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

Dead Inn (called Hillcrest Inn in the movie) is the main setting for this whacky genre hybrid flick. What ya got here is a rag-tag group of escaped convicts holing up at this crummy lookin inn. Well, the proprietor of this Inn (and Morgue/Lab) isn't your everyday fat oaf reading the funnies behind the counter. He's an ancient lookin' southern gent (played by Edgar Allan Poe IV), who more resembles a stiff than a living being. And he's got a whole bunch of supernatural tricks up his sleeve. With his craft laying in the unknown and all types of whatchamacallits, these violent escapee jerks have no prayer. Throw in a love-story with the Inn-keepers grand-daughter and Lab Products deliveryman, a good amount of horror nods (complete ripoffs as well), cheesy as hell humor, actors who are on board, and some bizarre social commentary and you've got Dead Inn.

It's not the greatest horror comedy in the world, hell, you may watch a better one this week. But it's something different, and kinda refreshing. My main gripe with the flick is that it strayed too often in the laugh territory. The flick which sported some low-budget but fun make-up effects could have done better in the horror department if it so chose to. But it didn't and we're stuck with too much silliness and not enough grue. But don't dismay, if you're into low-budget horror comedies with charm, this should be on your to-see-list. And at only 70 something minutes, it's not a chore at all. And hey, there's even a pair of boobs.
