Watch Trailer

"It's fast, it's funny, and it works."

— Ty Burr, Boston Globe

"Uses its reversal of the standard roles in rural horror to fantastic comedic effect."

— Ian Buckwalter, NPR

"Here's something you don't see every day: a genial, politically correct splatter comedy."

— Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader

"This is one of those rare genre comedies that near-perfectly balances its blend of grue, guffaws, and gag reflexes."

— Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle

"Takes common horror movie elements, pumps them full of absurdity, blood and even some heart, shakes them up and then hands over the result - a charming spoof that's a blast to watch."

— Perri Nemiroff, Shockya.com

"This movie is certifiably insane, that's a given, but it's also extremely witty, has far more intelligence than you might originally expect and has a grand time exploding clichés and playing with an audience's expectations."

— Sara Michelle Fetters, MovieFreak.com

"Clever horror/comedy hybrid of the kind that Sam Raimi used to make and that so many have tried to produce in recent years but have fallen remarkably flat. There's nothing flat about this clever genre flick. For the right audience, it's pretty great."

— Brian Tallerico, HollywoodChicago.com
