Total Times Watched - Four
The first time I saw this movie, I had no idea what it was and no expectations. I thought it would be a generic horror/slasher. I was wrong. It is horror, but it's much more than that. It's a really funny movie with a somewhat obvious plot and a cute romance thrown in for good measure.
The romance is particularly funny when you see the two characters next to one another on a bench eating ice cream. When I say romance, think of that loosely because it doesn't play a huge part in the movie. In fact, the relationship between Brodie and Zakk is more important at very key times throughout the movie. The story has some typical misfit in a shit town beats, but it plays it with humor rather than woe is me and the movie is all the better for it.
In the case of horror, some people like spooky scares, some like stalking, and some like gore. This has a lot of gore. Jaws being ripped off, heads being sawn in half, guts falling out, vibrators being used as drills.. the whole lot. The kills are pretty creative and definitely take the movie up a notch. I don't want to give away too much more about it or it'll spoil things, so let's just leave it at that.
Do you like metal? How about horror? Comedy? Demons? Gore? Shit, I think this movie is for you.
