my review: 10/10
It hits the genre perfectly and nails all of the major nails on the head, psycho villain, the jocks, cheerleader and nerd tropes are done well.
I honestly couldn't guess how the movie was going to end, and I fell for a couple plot twists, so that was extremely well done.
For the more technical analysis - Camera work was very good especially considering the genre, too many suffer from shaky and/or fast moving cameras which are more likely to induce nausea than any of the gore. Thankfully this is not it, they used a stabilizing camera during chases so it can be enjoyed to the best. - Acting was good, they are not going to win any Academy Awards, but they are able to say their lines with the appropriate tone. The fact Swedes acted as the Americans despite their accents is a cherry on top for me. - Gore was okay, wish they could have changed from venal pump to arterial spray when appropriate.
Americans and burgers how stereotypical and true - yet here we get neither! Which is just wonderful !
Swedish and British actors acting like American teens is ironic and insightful .... there is just too much truth here. And then the burger factory and the burger meat harvest. You just have to watch!
It's silly and goofy but great fun - splatter made funny! Check out Benjamin Brook!
*spoiler alert* the BEST part is with Benjamin brook driving the bus and crashing it into a burger stand !
There was never a funny moment. However if you think someone getting urinated on (by someone who did not know they were doing it) is funny, then this movie may be for you. There was no real plot. The "horror" effects were stupid (not funny). There was no nudity (except for a couple of rear ends). Unless you are a 10-year-old who is into horror/comedy, stay away.
I gave this movie a 2 instead of a 1 because I did actually watch all of it without turning it off. Although I wish that I had done so.
