Surprisingly good fun
9 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dark humour has now become the trademark of Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton (plus Mark Gatiss and Jeremy Dyson to a lesser extent), and they deliver this brilliantly.

The horror aspects of Psychoville are definitely inspired, references to "The Ring" "The Eye" "American Werewolf in London" and other high profile horror movies are ever-present. This said, all the stories are original and entertaining. The humour is darkly twisted and witty. These are blended together to create a great Halloween treat.

On the downside, the humour is very dark, which could be viewed as bad taste to some, which makes this a potential hit or miss. The other downside was the lack of explanation from the first series' cliffhanger ending. This Special takes places parallel to the final episode of Psychoville the series, and adds even more mystery to the outcome of the cast. A bit annoying for those who have waited for answers.

This was still a great watch, some great stories, genuine horror and dark humour. I think it would of worked better as a made for TV movie than a 2 part mini series.
