Well I'm just paraphrasing of course. And the movie did not conquer judging from the voting so far. But comedy is in the eye of the beholder, so if you are not into silly horror comedy, you may feel insulted (by the movie and by my vote). But if you have a heart for low budget movies, who do achieve a certain quality and originality, then you will feel what I did when I watched this at the Fantasy Filmfest last year.
The acting is good, the script had quite some funny ideas and it's really something you can enjoy if you let yourself. I did not expect this to be as much fun as it turned out to be and I'm really happy with what they came up with. The story is not new and what the characters have to go through is not new either. And others have gone the comedy route when it came to this kind of horror ... but it does have a couple of ideas it has that really do work. And the effects are not half bad. So again, this may or may not be for you - but the movie gives it its best shot
