Mildly watchable but weak slasher
28 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I can't say that I thought all that much of this one. It has the right idea,but it never really achieves enough in the way of laughs, suspense or gore to be a particularly attractive proposition. The plot sees various teens butchered by the malign fast food mascot Horny the clown and an obnoxious emo heroine seeking to find out why before its too late. As far as pluses go in this film, it does have a quick pace, a nice bodycount with a couple of neat moments and a well designed villain. Though not scary, Horny's costume at least looks the business, he pretty much looks exactly what you might expect a killer fast food mascot to look like. Lastly, the film has a determinedly eighties style flow to it, with a classic generic back story, idiotic stereotypical characters, bad music and dumb lines. All this mixed together allows the film to zip along, never getting boring, but at the same time, though it invites cosy reminiscences of cheesy slasher classics, the film never reaches their heights. The biggest issue is the relative lack of grue. Many of the kills are of screen, there are a few after the event bloodied bodies and the of the on screen killings, only one, maybe two succeed in being properly satisfying. I don't mind films soft pedalling the nastiness, but this film fails to make up for it with good stalking or suspense scenes. Another big problem is that the main character, played by Leighton Meester is simply not likable and her boyfriend, played by Nicholas D'Agosto, isn't much better. Its nearly impossible to build up empathy when the lead characters are tedious, rude little so and so's hat you just want to clip around the ears for their bad attitudes. Clearly a few annoying characters aren't too bad to have around as they make for good kill fodder but when the main character seems to constantly invite your dislike it does get quite tiresome. None of the other characters are much better, apart from a nice cameo from Morgan Spurlock, though no one has quite as much time irritating the audience as the leads. I didn't think much of the humour in this film either, it seems perched in between semi serious slasher and outright spoof but never properly reconciles the two, with the result that a lot of the humour falls flat. Still, I found this film hard to fully dislike. For all that it isn't terribly good it at least didn't baffle me with badness like some of the other recent horrors I have encountered on late night television recently. In a way, I kinda found its faults occasionally charming, like the pointless inclusion of a ouija board in proceedings or the lame music because taken along with the random neat moments it gave off the air of a film trying hard, doing its best, really trying to charm. It seemed very much on the right track in a lot of places and so I ended up with a fair amount of goodwill towards it. So, whilst I wouldn't recommend this as a quality film, it is a fair enough time waster for those who have a yen for this sort of thing.
