Release date: 2015
This was a film first seen by myself at the 2016 Bram Stoker International Film Festival and for me it was probably the highlight film of the festival – mainly because it is genuinely funny. Following the festival, I was lucky enough to be given access to a stream of the film in order for me to do this review.
Now, to be honest, I will have to give a little bit of a health warning that some of the jokes in the film are probably reliant on being a Brit of a certain age (the Krankies jokes might go way over many none-UK heads I suspect). A couple of the jokes also get a little close to the knuckle but we are more laughing at the main characters’ social ineptitude rather than the obvious gag content much of the time. The lore has its own unique twist to it and also manages to (deliberately?) self-contradict. And yet it is still a fabulous film.
