Canon for camp fans?
10 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is only an hour and six minutes long and it is totally worth your time. That is, unless you take yourself and your film tastes too seriously. Every cent of the $50 spent making this film was brilliantly used. There is literally nothing serious about ThanksKilling and it was refreshing, to me at least, to see a movie made by a bunch of artists who are clearly having fun with their work. ThanksKilling has a whimsical yet macabre aesthetic similar to Zombieland, if you liked that, definitely hit up ThanksKilling. Also, I highly recommend this film to any fans of Tromaville and Lloyd Kauffman. That said, there are some legitimately clever lines and some real wit. The soundtrack is also incredible, with no exception to be made for the original music created by hip-hop artist Kajmir Royale. I love the leading man because he is super handsome and probably could have skated by on his looks in some more lucrative cubicle job but instead he is following his dreams and making B horror movies, to my great benefit. If you have an opportunity and are into this stuff definitely watch this movie, preferably with a few like-minded friends.
