Adequately entertaining, albeit generic...
29 June 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I hadn't even heard about "Cannibals and Carpet Fitters" before now in 2019 when I stumbled upon it by sheer luck. I looked at the movie's cover and it seemed that it would be a horror comedy, perhaps much akin to something like "Shaun of the Dead", if one was lucky.

So needless to say, I gave "Cannibals and Carpet Fitters" a chance. And it was actually an adequate movie. Sure, it wasn't outstanding or particularly memorable, to be honest, but it was entertaining and enjoyable for its simplicity and its ability to mix classic slasher / cannibal horror with comedy. But it just wasn't fully up to par with the likes of "Shaun of the Dead" or "Lesbian Vampire Killers".

The storyline in "Cannibals and Carpet Fitters" was straight forward. And while it certainly was entertaining enough, it suffered from being too bland and generic actually. The movie lacked originality and that special ingredient to make it unique.

The acting in the movie was adequate, and I must admit that I do like watching unfamiliar talents on the screen. So that was a major plus in favor of the movie.

The special effects used in "Cannibals and Carpet Fitters" were fair enough, and served their purpose. Just don't go expecting to see a grand spectacle of CGI and practical effects.

All in all, "Cannibals and Carpet Fitters" is a mediocre horror comedy, that ultimately failed to stand out as original. And chances are slim to none that this will ever find its way back to my media center again.
