Low-key but really good filmBy a customer , 08 Nov 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Look past the deliberately... I'm not sure how best to put this... small-town (?) title... and (a poor opening notwithstanding) you get a surprisingly well-acted, well-written, well-plotted and even moving film. The horror element is pretty mild by conventional standards but I watched this with a large group of people and I think it'd be fair to say everyone was pleasantly surprised

Some film that's awfulBy LouW (8 reviews) , 14 Jun 2013Not a good film by any means. Whilst I've seen worse, the horror is practically non-existant, the comedy isn't funny and the whole movie is more like a slushy father-daughter reunion thing than anything resembling black comedy horror.

Don't miss!By a customer , 23 Apr 2013Surprisingly good considering the title; well acted, some great humour, a little shakes acting in places but the little girl is great. Four stars
Pure GeniusBy Chevez (4 reviews) from UK , 20 Apr 2013I'm a big horror fan and I like taking risks on less well known films . Occasionally I stumble across a film that is really worth a shout and this is definitely one of them. It's brilliantly scripted and acted, the horror moments are really punchy and the comic moments are genius. The sheriff in this is now one of my favourite new characters. If you like the tone of films like Slither, you'll love this. Great fun.
Brilliant gem of a film!By DrZazlos (7 reviews) , 15 Mar 2013If you are looking for a fun easy watching film, then you can do no wrong than to watch this. It's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but its a hell of a lot of fun, very funny and keeps you gripped throughout.
Average title great filmBy TheWatchman (745 reviews) from Suburbia , 25 Feb 2013If you can ignore the slightly cheesy title, youll find this is actually one of those rare hidden gems of films. It crosses many genres. It can go from grisly serial-killer flick to touching family drama in a matter of scenes, plus it throws in a good few black comedy moments (mainly courtesy of the Sherriffs dry humour). Its about a man whos recently been released from state psychiatric care (or simply the loonie bin as he keeps referring to it). He lives with his mother and gets a low-key job in an ice cream parlour. However, when hes not serving up cherries on sundaes, hes gruesomely hacking to bits a pack of high school bullies who he blames for putting him into care. He seems quite content with this until one day, by accident, he literally bumps into his long lost daughter who, in turn, seems to take HIM under her wing and invoke a daddy-daughter reunion. Not only is the film both violent and touching, but it also manages to do something that few films can, i. e. have a child actor that you actually like. His daughter is both brash and yet endearing and the young actress is certainly going to be one to watch in the future. If your sense of humour leans towards the black side you should enjoy watching the various relationships rise and fall. If you can stomach a small amount of gore and blood you will be rewarded with a funny and touching experience.
