Clever and Funny!
12 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you want out and out horror, then it's not for you.

If you want something original and clever, with bizarre scenarios and witty banter, and a gruesome twist......then here it is! I watched this with no preconceptions, and was totally entertained throughout.

It manages to mix Bloodied gruesome horror, dark comedy and savage humour with absolute finesse, and definitely makes you think what you would do if you was in the exact same situation.

I will admit that the first two parts of the film were the most entertaining, but it still didn't end with any disappointment.

Well worth watching!
