A chance encounter at a laundromat between a young man and young woman turns into an afternoon lunch date. As they get to know each other, bizarre stories begin to unfold, some fact, some fiction about each other's past. Eventually, the Young Man delves into a story about a birthday party whose guests began to be systematically killed off by a maniac in a white jump suit. The Young Woman, oddly enough, becomes more and more intrigued with the tale as the mayhem mounts. Is this the beginning of a beautiful relationship or a building block leading to a day ending in madness beyond fairy tales? Written by Anthony Burns

One of my top 10 films of the year.
8 November 2009 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

To lump this film in with horror comedies is doing it a disservice, as I think it's so much better than that. Personally, I don't care for horror comedies and thought this film was way too smart, clever and enjoyable to be deemed just another horror/comedy genre film. I can't wait to watch it with the commentary to see what I missed.

You need to watch this film, and watch it on Blu-Ray as it looks amazing. I'm not going to tell you the plot of the film, so go read the reviews if you want to know what the film is about, just don't overlook it, as it's a true gem. If your looking for a lame slash and gash flick with horrible dialog and predictable story plots then this film isn't for you, go watch Cabin Fever again. Solid, solid little film!
