English- Horror Comedy
Rated “R”
Runtime- 85 min.
dir. Glenn McQuaid
 

This thing was weird, but it isn’t really what you would expect. It’s kind of one of those flicks that has to conform to certain popular trends in order to gain popularity, even if it kind of screws with the story.

Story/Writing: 1/2

A bunch of vignettes are related to the audience during a man’s last statement before his execution. It doesn’t always make much chronological sense.

Acting: 1.5/2

For an independent effort, they certainly bagged some pretty good talent. Ron Perlman takes a step away from his type-casting to try something fairly hilarious.

Photography/Set: 1/2

The independent part certainly shows through here. It almost seems like it was filmed on someone else’s set. Way too much fog.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

Pretty good effects, and a lot of visual gags involved in them.

Misc: 1.5/2

VERDICT: 6.5/10

Funny, but don’t pay attention to the stuff in between the jokes.
