A Watchable Above Average Horror Comedy, 14 April 2008
Author: druquzdog from United States

I was a bit worried for the first fifteen minutes or so that The Cook wasn't going to deliver. Some of the dialogue at the start is a bit clunky and when I first saw the guy playing the cook I was concerned that he wasn't going to be able to pull it off.

As the movie progressed I was very happy to be proved wrong on all fronts and ended up having an awesome time watching this little horror comedy masterpiece. What can I say, I loved it and I'm looking forward to a sequel.

If you're hoping to be able to take much of the movie seriously then you're watching the wrong film. This is played strictly for laughs and tongue in cheek at more or less every step. A lot of the humour is very dark, but somehow handled with a light touch.

After the slightly shaky start, and once you accept the film for the cheesy fun-fest that it is you can enjoy it's off-the-wall handling and flavour. By the end I had come to think that the team that put it together had an inspired handling and quite a bit of originality going for them.

It's not a big budget film, and it's a little shaky at the start, but as a fan of low-budget horror, 80's horror and horror comedy I recommend this film to those of similar tastes.
