Not a runaway great, but certainly different
10 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this expecting it to be a regular old horror movie.

Holy cow was I wrong.

I'm not going to spoil any of the actual plot, but the blend of slasher-style horror, black comedy and Broadway musical really works. Once the first song got underway I was, to be honest, somewhat suspicious. I'm glad I didn't just give up on it, though. This was a real treat.

Although there is a fair bit of graphic violence (it is a slasher film, after all) there is still an inherent amount of a comedic element even in the murder scenes. The way that they interweave what would, under normal circumstances, be a reasonably good slasher flick with a musical is what really makes this movie stand out and be unique.

While there are certainly better ways to spend 90 minutes, there are certainly also worse ways too. Dive in with a willing suspension of disbelief and enjoy it.
