DOGHOUSE is a British stab at the comedy horror genre, featuring a group of guys who go off on holiday to a remote woodland locale and find themselves at the mercy of some zombie-type creatures. It's a film that's more than happy to reveal its inspirations, which here seem to be the likes of horror classics such as THE EVIL DEAD as well as more recent fare like SEVERANCE, which also starred Danny Dyer.
As such, the story is entirely predictable and almost everything that happens has been done before, and probably better. Despite that, it's quite a watchable film, filled to the brim with lots of humour - a lot of it sexist, it has to be said - and gore effects which keep it bubbling along. It's surprisingly entertaining given the pedigree of director Jake West, who has made some real tosh over the years (I'm thinking of EVIL ALIENS in particular).
The cast is littered with familiar faces and more than a few decent actors (Stephen Graham, Noel Clarke) and Dyer plays one of those laid-back, likable lead characters that he always seems to adopt. The special effects and various action scenes are all well-handled, although it has to be said that the actresses playing the various Zombirds are all terribly, embarrassingly over the top (particularly Emily Booth). Still, this is unashamedly adult in tone, which is a plus, and it's a masterpiece in comparison to the execrable LESBIAN VAMPIRE KILLERS!
