May not be everybody's cup of tea but it certainly was mine GRRAHHHHH
26 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With Zombie inducing Nazi tea, axe wielding old age pensioners, a gun toting lobster fisherman and a belligerent alcoholic in a wheelchair what is not to like about this comedy? The fact that this was made on a budget of just £15,000 is astounding and the fact that the amateur actors and crew performed far better than any of the SyFy and Asylum garbage being released speaks volumes about the ability of the cast / crew (Which is often one and the same)...

I was seriously expecting to just skip through the DVD with the usual eye rolls and cringes that low budget movies generally provoke and ended up watching it straight through and found parts absolutely hilarious...

Cerebral comedy it is not but it put me in mind of Peter Jacksons "Bad Taste" which has become somewhat of a cult movie and spring boarded Peter Jacksons meteoric career and I suspect that this might just spring board the career of David Ryan Keith in the same way...

Ordinarily campy acting grates on the nerves but in this movie it accentuates the comedy (I suppose because the film does not take itself seriously at all) and the comedy is further enhanced when in comparison to the over the top eccentricities of the other characters the main character "Jackson McGregor" is a drab and dreary character with little personal charisma which surprisingly is refreshing against the backdrop of eccentric characters (Much in the same vein as the character Shaun in "Shaun of the Dead" is meant to be a bland character placed in extraordinary circumstances)...

Like I say it may not be everybody's cup of tea (Pun intended) but it certainly tickled my funny bone...
