It's a delightful and original mix of a slasher, musical, and horror comedy.
17 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is excellent - but it may not be for you if you don't enjoy both irreverent musical comedies -and- slasher films of both the serious and guilty pleasure variety.

So if you really enjoyed Pitch Perfect, Scream, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and have seen more than a few stage musicals, then this might just make your night.

The only reason this doesn't have a better rating (its currently at a 5, which to me is a crime) is because viewers come to it expecting a slasher, and hate the musical comedy, OR they come to it expecting a musical comedy, and don't like the gore. Or they come to it to see meatloaf - who here plays and sings very much against type, and feel cheated.

This is smart, amusing, and will tickle the right people in the right places.
