I was a big fan of Chris Smith's previous film Creep and had heard this was even better so I had high expectations going in. They were completely surpassed by this superlative slice of hilarious horror action.
The way the film combines humour and horror is skilled and the script is smarter than average for the genre. The film works better as a comedy and there are some absolutely precious comedy moments that I won't detail here as I don't want to spoil any of them. Suffice to say that the audience were busily quoting them and some of the better of the fantastic lines of dialogue after the screening. I feel people will be quoting some of these lines for years!
On a more serious note, there are some seriously scary scenes in the picture and even a couple of deaths of some of the more sympathetic characters that are actually quite moving.
The cast is also perfect, none of them put a foot wrong. Laura Harris completely kicks ass as the heroine.
I sorta want to see a sequel but heaven knows where they'd go with it.
Overall, I loved the film - it's made by a writer and director who are genuine horror fans and it shows. They're also both very talented.
