A gang of unreconstructed males out to cheer up a divorced pal find their rural bolt hole's been swamped by "man-hating feminist cannibals" in this surprisingly entertaining romp. Although similar in outline to
Lesbian Vampire Killers
, this amusing splatter-fest has more going for it - Dan Schaffer's clever script unfalteringly sends up our heroes' chauvinistic attitudes to womankind in general, not just the scantily clad, virus-infected
thirsting for their blood. Even those averse to Danny Dyer's usual cheeky-chappie persona may be pleasantly surprised by his self-mocking performance here. Moreover, the fact the lads loyally stand by their gay pal (Emil Marwa) indicates the film's refreshing approach to often hidebound horror-movie conventions. True, it's not quite as satirically sharp as
Shaun of the Dead
, and director Jake West often times the gags with a thud, yet it's certainly a smarter outing than its premise would lead you to expect.
A man is plunged into misery by his divorce, so his friends decide to cheer him up with a weekend-long party in a country village where women outnumber men by three to one. However, when they arrive, they find a virus has transformed the female population into bloodthirsty cannibals, leaving them fighting for their lives. Comedy horror, starring Danny Dyer and Noel Clarke.
