This movie about Live Action Role Players (or LARPers) -- men and women who act out Dungeons and Dragons in real settings, in costumes -- is so haphazard it might have been thought up during a game of Mad Libs.

Clumsily edited, the movie is very uneven in tone... but the spirited cast emerge from the jokey carnage with dignity, if not all their body parts, intact.

A one-note joke and a whiff of a story that fails to offer a single reason - literal or metaphorical - why dressing up as a fictional character is enjoyable or rewarding.

This film had such marvelous potential to satirize and lampoon, but it really didn't measure up. There are funny moments in the film, but few of the jokes… More

Well well what have we here? a horror comedy in the same league as the cult Evil Dead franchise or American Werewolf in London?. In all honesty I had no clue… More
