A black comedy without the comedy,
This review is from: A Film With Me In It [DVD] (DVD)
This was a truely disappointing film. I only laughed about twice in the whole 85 minutes. The acting is good and the production fine, so I guess that the script just isn't very funny. I am surprised some people think it hilarious, I suspect just anyone dying is hugely amusing to them. There is a long tradition of trying to mix comedy and horror and to be fair, it is a difficult balance to get right. Sadly, the film gets it wrong. The comedy is to laboured and in too short a supply while the horror is both gory and hard to suspend disbelief. The film within a film ending is disappointing.
Save yourself some time and watch a different film. I can only suppose that generous tax breaks were used to make this film, otherwise it is difficult to see how it could have got off the ground.
