So ya, never heard of this, i know, im just as shocked as you, this movie is so up my alley i can't understand i never knew about it.
The writing is so fun, the story works and it stays simple, there is actual tension and chemistry that keeps you interested. Most of the jokes hit and they happen subtly and in your face and are of both the dark and light variety. Two things i wanted was it to have more of a horror factor, it is present but its not strong, also a Halloween thing would be nice. Ok three things a little more adventurous like they start doing stuff and then it just stops.
The directing is actually really solid, it has a super Edgar Wright from Shaun of the Dead vibe, but more peculiar Wes Anderson style, It also has a strong tone and great pacing.
The editing is top notch.
The acting is good, with Maeve Higgins, Barry Ward, Will Forte, Claudia O'Doherty, Jamie Beamish, Terri Chandler and Emma Coleman.
In conclusion this is a really good horror comedy that im sure is going to get overlooked for being Irish, dont sleep on this one.
