Crazy, hilarious and totally MAD

Mad Cow is a fast and furious comedy horror movie with the accent on the comedy. It's like a surreal roller coaster ride through horror and action movies. Although the movie is low budget, it wins the viewer over with charm, and lots and lots of gags.

The plot is less important than the insane set pieces, but it centres around a mad scientist out to put the head of a cow on a human body, but of course it all goes wrong, and the fall out is a ridiculous take on action / monster flicks that unfolds into a zombie battle scene. It's fun to watch and I bet it was a scream shooting it.

I watched a 'pre-screener' from a friend who went to Cannes where the film screened, he said there was a scrum of people trying to get in to see the film in a tiny theatre and a guy wandering round dressed as Mad Cow.

If you're out for gore and realistic special effects forget it, if you want utterly insane, and sometimes shocking laughs then this is for you. weird and wonderful.

Love Monty Python? You'll love Mad Cow.

I just watched Mad Cow for the first time and I loved it.

No, its not CGI or made on a multi million dollar budget.

BUT...yes, it is funny! Its one of those indie films that given the chance could rise to be a cult classic. Clever writing gives this script the edge above other comedy horror films.

And the best part? Its written in this classic Monty Python mantra that makes you bust a gut with every line. I've actually seen it a couple of times and am amazed on the things I pick up on the second or third time around.

It also doesn't hurt that there is a lot of eye candy in this film...sure to please all.

it's goal: cult classic, it's fate: laughing stock

Mad Cow was only somewhat entertaining. Aside from the 2 minutes of suspense, it was ridiculously stupid and poorly written.

It reminds me of the American film Mad Cow released in 2008 which was equally as poorly made.

I think it reaches out to only a very specific and very small population. you have to be alright with fake looking gore and borderline gore porn. And even then, it leaves quite a lot to be desired.

The filmmakers should have invested in cg rather than poor actors who were paid more than their lack of talent warranted.

The whole movie was very awkward as though it was deliberately trying to be bad. Anybody who would waste time and money to make (and moviegoers-to watch) something like this is clearly mental.
