A group of eleven recruits, composed entirely of excruciating social stereotypes, and one dorky camp instructor, embark on a weekend-long work retreat in the quasi-wilderness of northern south-east Queensland. Everything goes relatively smoothly, that is to say, lamely, until (you guessed it) one of the group turns out to be a homicidal maniac hell-bent on dispatching the others in a variety of creative ways. Based on the Pulitzer-Prize-winning novel (sic), The Killage is a wacky, fright-filled journey into the darkest recesses of the human intestines. Bring a box of tissues. Written by
Best budget horrifunny film I've seen in a long time.
My girlfriend was given tickets to see the premiere of this film. I was pretty hesitant to go because we had to drive some distance. But I'm glad I made the journey to experience it.
The Killage is a comedy slash thriller slash horror slash slasher film.. Hilarious, gore filled and a lot of fun. I loved it.
While it seems to cover pretty much everything in the 'camp horror' niche.. it also felt very original and fresh. You definitely won't feel like you've 'seen this all before'.
The entire audience seemed to be splitting their sides in laughter (or squirming at various things been split on the screen). And I think the big audience really helped me enjoy this film. If you go to buy a copy or see it at a cinema (if you can) I highly recommend getting some friends around to watch it with you as it's a lot of fun. It's a fair dinkum popcorn companion.
