A fun horror film that is full of gore, disgusting sight gags, and characters that seem fresher and far better constructed than the slasher and possession films… More

Excellent cheese-tastic B-movie horror. There is no story, there is just amusing 1 liners and a cast who know how to ham it up more than miss piggy. Nathan… More
