Release date: 2008
This was one of the films that I saw at the 2009 Bram Stoker film festival. At the time of writing the review it is awaiting the US DVD release but has seen a release in Germany under the title Legion Der Vampire.
Now this is lowbrow humour, of that there is no doubt. We have poop jokes, fart gags, more sexual references than you can shake a stick at and you know what… its all good, this is good ol’ redneck aimed (at) humour. It could have just been so puerile that it was pathetic but it skated that fine line and in doing so took a large sociological sideswipe at consumerism with some other sly social comments sneaking in – no mean feat in what might have been simply toilet humour.
Buffy). Con$umart is a vampire corporation, going into small towns and bleeding them dry until everyone works for or shops at their store. They have 90 such stores across America. Brendon is clearly having a fab old time in this and his cameo is worthwhile.
The humour is very often guttural, yet works and the film deserves a solid 6 out of 10. The imdb page is here.
