If we think back to horror comedies of recent past, such as Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell, there is a problem. For many people, such films are either too much a comedy or too much a horror film (or perhaps just trying to hard in either direction). This film is the pitch-perfect mix of both. It is a damn riot. I've not laughed this hard or had so many ohs (due to kills) in a single movie in a long while. Take note, those of you in Hollywood making awful satire. There is a right way to send up a genre, and this is it.

Happens to me all the time. I was surprised no one beat me to it. Looks like it might be a winner.

Looking at the web site it is not hitting a lot of theaters so VOD may be the way to go until they release DVD or Bluray. VOD should drop in price this weekend.

Set my DVR last night when I saw it was going to be on. Its getting great reviews everywhere I look.

I haven't been impressed with these sneaks that HDNet movies supplies us with. Keeping my fingers crossed, though.

Agreed.

I loaned it to a friend who is tiring of the same old formulas in horror movies. He loved it too. It was very funny, and the acting was just right.

Finally saw it tonight, and it was everything I was hoping it would be and more. Best comedy I've seen in awhile, and intelligently done. Definitely a must see.

For me, this was one of those movies where the trailer gave away every single good joke and almost all of the important plot points from start to finish. I felt like I'd already seen the movie by the time I actually watched it.

I probably would have enjoyed it more if not for the spoiler-filled trailers.
