It promises funny gore, sexy shots and some tension, the contract is more or less fulfilled.

There is a lot of funny gore, but there could be more
the floating penis is a great moment still :yeah:
, there is some sexy shots, but there could be more
I even had the feeling that the film was being sponsored by the Vatican : sex remains constrained on screen, and all the porn actresses are eaten :tears: while the boring hero survives :angry: , unfair. This is a rule of this parody (?) of Z-horror movie, but it is still disapointing
, and there was no tension at all because of a total absence of empathy with the characters
for the exception of a few seconds in the underwater cave, where there is some suspens on when exactly the scubadivers were going to be eaten, but quite short :?


There is even poetry (was it in the contract ?) :absinthe:
is there poetry ? the underwater ballet of porn-naiads with silicon breasts on the Lakme music is outrageously cheesy, on purpose I guess (hope ?) :gj:


It is OK, I smiled while watching it, but didn t went for the big laugh or the big thrill; it is well shot, but I was expecting more (yes, I know, I already said it) :p
maybe because before watching it I queued a while in a chinese butchery shop buying meat, which gave me an idea of what a real gore comedy can be... Now I ll know these are not the best conditions to watch a gore movie :roll:


OK. I have another problem, I don t get the hype about Alexandre Aja. I ll have to look the Hill has Eyes again, I think now I watched it too quickly for I found it good but not that good (and hated the ending) I liked Haute Tension. But movie after movie I have the same feeling about this director : he is a kind of good pupil, by that I mean the teacher's pet (I don t know who s the teacher anyway :idea: ). So everything is smooth and clean, where it should be and what it should be. He delivers a good amount of gore, as it is what is expected from him in this movie, but I have the feeling he has no pleasure delivering it, he just delivers. Show us how good and obedient he is for the teacher's (gore fans ?) demands. So it is never crazy, never tense, never really original, not personnal. I cannot really explain that feeling, or is it that I expect too much ?

Saw it in 2D, no idea about the 3D being good or not.

I put a 3.
