It takes a lot for me to laugh at a modern comedy, but in the first 10 minutes of this film I was hysterical. Let me give you the run-down. A girl calls John who calls David (our main character) about a spirit in her home. David and John go to investigate, they discover the girl is actually the spirit, they shoot at her, a freezer opens up and an assortment of meat products assemble into Lady Gaga at the music awards, doorknobs turn to dicks, John calls a spiritual guru, Dr. Albert Marconi, on the cell phone, lets him talk to the evil demon personally – meat gets cooked!
From there it’s ‘down the rabbit hole” style chaos, and a comedic maze of a plot, that is somehow easy to follow. Some black drug from Planet-X causes David to see things that he shouldn’t be able to see and the tale escalates into a spiritual slugfest of good vs. evil. I can’t explain too much more because it would seem so ridiculous and you would probably disregard this film. You should watch this!
Directed by John Coscarelli (Phantasm) and written by David Wong, who shares the same name as the main character, it is filled with thought provoking existential questions, such as; Do you ever wonder why sometimes you see a single shoe alongside the road? And, What’s it like to go crazy? You just feel regular as the rest of the world goes crazy around you…
This is the funniest horror-comedy since Shawn of the Dead. It is a horror, subgenre: bizzaro, comedy, action, adventure movie, and a lot of fun to watch.
