A wonderful romp....if you're into film theory, you'll love it!
16 December 2013 | by amussehlSee all my reviews

This is a really interesting film. Dan Davies is a very special talent (writer and actor) and wrote a film where all of the musical numbers happen in Ed's head. That lessens the need to "water down" the story by making the fantasy "fit" a straight dialog film. You get the core of the story (the necessary amount of the "horror" without its being distasteful to anyone who might have had a personal connection to it!) but it isn't overdone like most exploitation films (which this definitely IS NOT); the result is a funny, poignant and well crafted film. I really liked this movie -- I went not expecting much and came away blown away with what this very creative and serious young film maker had created. I highly recommend this to anyone studying film!
