Absolutely weird.
11 October 2017 | by overveldeSee all my reviews

I tried describing this film to a friend. It's labeled a horror comedy, but I didn't find it scary or funny. The latter is not meant to be an insult, because there's a definite unique style that would work for some people.

The most apt analogy I can make is that it's a live action Beavis and Butthead world done by the cast of Shameless.

Characters that would be considered as a weird outlier in any other work seems to be par for the course here. Everything is weird, awkward, and unsettling but not in a creepy way.

I rate it a 6 because after I was done watching all I could really say was "Yup. I watched that." but it's very easily either the best film you'll ever see, or one of the worst, depending on what you want from it.
