Our Score
Mathew Horne and James Corden were still riding high from hit BBC comedy Gavin & Stacey when they collaborated on this horrid Hammer homage. However, their subsequent TV sketch show smacked of The Emperor's New Clothes, and this scatological traipse through Hammer iconography only confirms that assessment. Horne plays jilted wimp Jimmy, who goes hiking with priapic pal Corden to forget his ex-girlfriend and ends up in a village beset by Sapphic bloodsuckers, with only virginal Swedish student MyAnna Buring (Ripper Street) and sweary vicar Paul McGann to help them. Comparisons to British zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead are inevitable but that film succeeded in being both funny and gory. This smutty nonsense that's obsessed by bodily fluids, does neither. Despite the film-makers' obvious love for the lurid sauciness of 1970s Hammer, the titters here are so telegraphed and hoary, they would barely have passed muster in that decade itself.

Summary

Fletch and Jimmy head off on a weekend getaway and stumble across a town in which all of the women are cursed to become bloodthirsty vampires. It is not long before the men realise that in order to avoid becoming prey to the killers, they must become the hunters. Comedy horror, starring James Corden, Mathew Horne and Paul McGann.
