Great fun, but no "Shaun of the Dead"...
26 June 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Right, first let me say that the DVD cover as sold from Amazon brandishes this proclamation on the cover: "Hot Fuzz meets Shaun of the Dead". And that was the selling point for me, that raised my interest in "Attack of the Herbals".

But that was false advertising in my opinion. Because I was expecting something of a zombie comedy. Now, don't get me wrong, "Attack of the Herbals" is a good and entertaining movie, but it is hardly a zombie movie. At best, the tea in the movie turned the villagers into raving madmen, not zombies.

"Attack of the Herbals" has a lot of humor, not much unlike that you would see in "Hot Fuzz" or "Shaun of the Dead", true, but it never really raised itself up to that particular level of entertainment.

For a Scottish comedy, then "Attack of the Herbals" was actually quite nice. Lots of laughs here, funny situations, hilarious characters, odd dialogue and just outrageous craziness. And despite it being a fairly low budget movie, then the movie makers actually managed to pull this off extremely nicely. The movie had top notch production and didn't really lack anything (well, aside from actual zombies).

The acting in the movie was nice as well, and I wasn't familiar with a single actor or actress at all, so that was a nice change of pace for once, to see a movie and not compare the actors in it to previous roles in other movies.

"Attack of the Herbals" is a good laugh and good entertainment. Just don't sit down to watch it under the false advertising as I was mislead by, then you will be sorely disappointed. And of course, being somewhat familiar with the Scottish accent is an advantage to watching this movie.
