From the same people that brought you ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, a funny movie, this one was lacking quite a bit.  First off, I think they couldn’t figure out if they wanted to do a horror film, a mystery, or an action packed thrill ride.  They kept switching genres throughout the whole film.  It had some actually pretty gory scenes, that kind of reminded me that they had made a Horror film before, and I think that truly is their passion, but then they tried to get all campy and enter the action genre quite a bit as well.  Also, there was the ‘mystery’ going on, with the murders in the town, that took on a dramatic murder mystery type tone, somewhat like that movie ‘The Reaping‘.  There were some funny moments, there were some good scenes, and lines, but overall I thought this movie sucked and stunk of all the bad things about british films, and had none of the good qualities from them.  I give this movie one and a half stars out of five, for having such a disappointing, and stupid ending!  Kids?  sure … why not?  maybe they’ll get the director’s vision, cause I sure didn’t.  kidding… I wouldn’t let kids under 12 see it because there are some graphic death scenes in it.
