First horror comedy I actually enjoyed
20 May 2016 | by pure_redroseSee all my reviews

The acting started out fake and the camera methods were not to my liking at first, but it actually turned out to help the movie in creating the tense atmosphere and the acting worked as well. Some jokes were not exactly laugh out loud funny but the majority actually were... while still blending with the fairly decent plot.

Overall it's more comedy than thriller, but still manages to make you jump in your seat at least once or twice and keep wondering what will happen next. It wasn't perfect but it's the only horror comedy that wasn't ridiculous and all about gore, and was actually to my liking in providing a thriller with a good story line, and with sensible jokes in between.
