I recently invested in an unlimited pass for the cinema and have since tried to see as many films as possible. I can safly say that this is one of the best so far next to Scorcese's "The Departed".
Good performances all round, a good script and overall good pacing make this film never boring. It may be a tad predictable in the 'whos gonna die next' kinda way and the romantic subplot, but the fun is in seeing how it unravels. There are some genuinely funny moments which contrast nicly with some truely horrific ones. It is also very aware that it is a horror film underneath the comedy but nicely bypasses the pitfalls that so many horror films fall into.
The adverts claimed it was 'the best horror comedy since Shaun of the Dead' and there is certainly no lie there. Some people may even prefer this.
