Awesomely Sick and Twisted
20 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fat Foot Films has entered its first feature length film in Mourning Wood, just in time for Halloween, and judging by Saturday afternoon's hilarious premiere, it is sure to become a cult classic. Writer-director Ryan Convery's brainchild definitively falls under the category of sui generis.

Part Evil Dead II, part Killer Klowns from Outer Space, part really bad B porno movie for gay men, Mourning Wood truly stands in a genre all its own. It pays homage to the comedy- horror flicks of the '80s, with some classic characters from the pulp horror flicks of the 1950s. After 4+ years in the making, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Mourning Wood is actually a (relatively) well-made, genuinely funny "horror" film for the 21st century. The cinematography is surprisingly smooth, with well-edited transitions, angles, and interesting shots that lend insight into the plot line.

Someone has tampered with the products in Dr. Pendelton's lab, an infomercial king made famous for products like FartX and Dick Killer Condoms. He is now poised to introduce a new product called 'Shampube' designed to do … well, we never find out because it turns the entire town into semen-spewing humping zombies. Yes, you read that right.

In a bit of reality meets plot, a lovable group of nitwits (with Marc Guild playing the hilarious Derik) are too busy smoking pot and talking about making movies to notice what is going on the world. Hilarity and semen-drenching ensues, and (almost) everyone makes it out (mostly) alive.

Convery ingeniously uses TV broadcasts (starring himself as the very-funny on-scene news personality and the lovable but lost Nick Brown as the host) to give the audience the feeling of "reality".

In the end, the makeup and special effects alone are worth picking up a copy (the entire dream sequence with "G" is amazing!), but likewise Ryan Convery's script is thoroughly funny and enjoyable, in a sick & twisted way. A++
