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 (Kill List) 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 Hammer in the 1970s, the titters here are so telegraphed and hoary, they would barely have passed muster in that decade itself.

Plot Summary

Comedy horror starring James Corden and Mathew Horne. Two friends hiking in Norfolk are invited to share a cottage with some female foreign students. But the remote village they are in is under a vampire's curse, and what seemed like the offer of a lifetime turns into a nightmare.
