Successful, and quite decent for a genre - parody
8 October 2015 | by InDyingArmsSee all my reviews

Heads up to horror fans who are looking for complete, and utter seriousness in your horror films, skip this. However if you enjoy complete craziness; parody - themed horror movies, poking fun at the genre, "The Shashening" will give horror fans a hilarious, completely crazy time that actually draws it's point at poking it's fun.

This review will be quite short due to most reviews of mine actually having to do with elements featured with given emphasis - Not saying this film features no emphasis; emphasis revolving around a non - parody themed story. The idea of this film I felt was quite good. The idea of poking fun at the sub-genre of horror that features the most clichés, that being the slasher sub-genre. The idea of making fun of it, and drawing a point of what it mostly typically all is was honestly great. It's also lots of fun for us, audience to see all the mayhem and hilarious fun that was made toward making fun of the genre. I felt as if, as well, the movie had some really nice execution, especially with the fact of its micro-budget. The film managed to make the best of it with it's hilariocity, and over the top fun, and ridiculous nature. There were some funny scenes of which had some good humor, giving some small laughs, ranging from characters, character execution, dialogue, and simple scenes.

In conclusion, as, honestly there's not much to say in terms with serious horror elements. This film was actually enjoyable. It had charm, charm of which was carried out in a smooth, successful execution, drawing the movies parody genre point straight across the line. It succeeded by defeating its micro-budget with funny executions throughout the entire film, relieving it from being a parody of which falls under the mark. Overall smooth, decent execution for a smooth, decent film. I'd recommend for those looking for something funny; comedy, horror.
