User Reviews

Better than the first, and completely underrated as a genre flick.
28 June 2009 | by The-Evil-DeadSee all my reviews

It's not very often that you can catch a horror film that pays so much homage to the genre that is actually enjoyable and not completely painstaking. Whomever was behind the concept of this film and script were clearly have a good time, and personally I thought it turned out very well.

Despite the fact that it wasn't a huge budgeted release, everything holds up. It's the imagination that goes into the script ( Yeah, it's all a spin off of other films, but done very well. ) that really brings a cool energy to this film. It'll have you munching on the popcorn.

If you're a genre fan, you will get a smirk out of this film. If you don't, I guess you're one of the types that can't have a good time with the horror concept being tossed around into the realm of satire and comedy as it is in this film.

I'm really surprised there's not a bit more buzz about this film. I think it's a true cult classic and absolutely surpasses the first in every way. Do what is in your power to see this film if you haven't.
