You'd think it'd be basically impossible to make a boring film when you've got Eugene Levy with a (pretty frickin' amazing) afro, Andrea Martin, the director of Ghostbusters, and a premise involving a trio of sexy cannibals, but what do you know, somehow they found a way.

Even though it's listed as a horror comedy, it's mostly just horror, with only a vague comedic sensibility. And even in the moments where the intentional comedy is clearer, it's surprisingly not very funny considering the director and screenwriter's comedic chops as evidenced by other films like Meatballs and Stripes. The tagline "These girls do exactly what you think they do!" is actually funnier than anything in the movie.

But man, that afro...
