An indie, low budget, Art House Horror-Comedy. Yep. Worth the watch? Sure. I just wasn’t a fan of the random stylistic jumps. It seemed like Folger was experimenting with direction and photographic styles, in this, his directorial debut, and mashed them all together in one film. Neat, but all over the freaking place. The story rather suffered for this, as in some places the story was over explained, and in others it was overly metaphorical. On the plus side, the cast is very talented, and there is all sorts of great kill scenes with plenty of good effects.
