A village full of women who are real man-eaters.
27 October 2009 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Jake West has been gaining a following among horror fans for a few years now (Razor Blade Smile had a few fans but Evil Aliens really made his name in the community) and it's good to see him finally working with a cast and budget that can help realise his comedy-horror sensibilities into something polished and perhaps a little more appealing to more than just a cult audience.

A bunch of lads, all experiencing varying degrees of relationship problems, decide to get away from it all and take a trip to the village of Moodley for a weekend of drinking, debauchery and any activity that will help their good friend Vince (Stephen Graham) forget all about his recent divorce. it seems like they definitely picked the wrong village though as all of the women have somehow been turned into vicious, man-hating cannibals. Once the lads realise the situation all political correctness and ideas of gentlemanly conduct are thrown out the window as survival becomes the main aim.

West has a great cast including Graham, Danny Dyer (who many dislike but I have no problem with), Noel Clarke, Keith-Lee Castle and others familiar to viewers of UK television and film. Yes, the characters are almost all just a bunch of mildly misogynistic men's men but there's enough variety in there and little character details to make each one well-rounded enough for the audience to identify with.

The infected women are, for the most part, heavily made up but it's always fun to see Emily Booth in a horror movie no matter how she looks while everyone else is given some accompanying outfit or identifying feature (a wedding dress, a massive sword, etc) to single them out as an individual threat.

Fans of gore will not be disappointed as there is plenty on display here, most of it really well done and certainly a step up even from West's Evil Aliens carnage. And as for the humour? For the most part, it works really well although I can't see this movie appealing to a lot of women. This is a "lad's" movie through and through, from the juvenile observations about the sexiness of killer cannibal females to the embittered protest against men feeling they have been trained as a pet in previous relationships. As bad as the opinions may be, these characters end up voicing thoughts that many men have had at one time or another which just makes the reactions to the situation ring true despite the absurdity of it.

Sadly, the film really suffers a major setback in it's ending . . . . an ending so bad that I actually sat through the credits expecting some amusing footnote that never appeared. An enjoyable, unspectacular movie gave me nothing to complain about until that ending, one of the worst I have seen in the past decade. For that very reason I have to knock a point or two from it's rating here but it's a shame because the rest of the movie was going along nicely. Still, them's the breaks. Give it a try but probably best to do so with a few beers and some male mates round. I would not recommend this as a movie for "date night".

See this if you like: Lesbian Vampire Killers, Shaun Of The Dead, Evil Aliens.
