This movie is so great, is so many different ways. It's the type of film that's 'original' and 'rubbish' at the same time. In a way as if the director wrote the idea and then said to himself, 'this ideas rubbish, how will I get people to like it', and then pretty much says that at the beginning of the film. The film is a 'homage to the 'no reason'' in movies, like saying, OK, we know it's rubbish, but more taking the mickey out of rubbish films just like it, rather than being actually rubbish itself. Thought the film was complete genius, and would happily watch it again, several times. I mean, come on, the films about a telekinetic serial killer Tyre, that kills animals, bottles and makes human heads explode, what more could you want from a comedy / horror film, and the violence in it isn't too over the top, so is even a film that you can watch with your mum and enjoy and laugh at together.
