    Do not let the negative reviews fool you - this is one for the fans !

    Bizarrely there is some quite interesting social commentary in this, but for the most part this is a full on gore-fest. Bravo !

    The last act has no right to be as powerful as it is.

    I swing back and forth on whether I prefer the 1st or 2nd - on this revisit I'm slightly edging back to the 1st.

    ★★★★

    It's a mixed bag. Often more on the nose than a pair of nostrils with its religious musings and with typically undisciplined Flanagan-esque meandering monologues.

    However, it does work far more than it doesn't. I think some of the religious aspects amount to zen level trolling! There's some very convincing acting and character development, and also effective classic monster moments.

    Overall I give Flanagan's Lot 4 out of 5. It'd be interesting to see if there could be a heavy edit for a film version - that might have been more to my taste.

    Teenwolf meets Allo Allo...

    I thought this had a surprising amount of charm for a small indie flick. The plot is a little thin, as is the actual horror quotient, but for the most part I did go along with it, and I think the actor playing Teddy is probably the main reason for this, as he puts in a watchable and entertaining shift.
