A fun splatter movie on a budget
1 April 2004 | by basschickSee all my reviews

doom asylum does not take itself seriously, and if you accept it for what it is - a comedy/splatter movie without a major studio or bank loan in sight, it's pretty good.

true, the "blood" is mighty watery, but if you enjoy the typical teen slasher movie, this satire might keep you laughing at the stereotypes and good, clean blood-splattering fun. what better way to spend a saturday evening than hanging out with your friends watching people get hacked up in an asylum?

this movie is not for everyone, but if you either love movie send-ups or horror/schlock, i recommend it.
