Neat wee film
24 March 2010 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is a nice, low-budget, interesting little movie. Great to see a film with one of the main writers as a lead (funny-man Raybon Kan, who is as good-a comedian as he is a movie star). Suze Tye was my favorite though, creepy & beautiful at the same time, I thoroughly enjoyed her character and the way she portrayed Nurse Bates

Comparable to Shaun of the Dead, (which also features a great writer/actor; Simon Pegg) but on a smaller scale, with very much the same RomCom Horror spirit (not so much horror, but enough to remove any chick-flick stigma :)

I'd expect short-sighted mainstream movie-buffs to quickly denounce and criticize this film, so 'skip this one' if you're too narrow-minded to appreciate the simple things in life

Go NZ movies!!
