Our Score
Where to start? Aaaaaaaah! has no dialogue, just grunts, groans and guttural sounds. Best to imagine it maybe as a movie from some parallel universe where apes have evolved with all the trappings of today, except language and social niceties. The film is the brainchild of writer/director Steve Oram, who you may remember playing one half of the serial-killer couple in British black comedy Sightseers. Julian Rhind-Tutt, Noel Fielding and former pop star Toyah Willcox also contribute to what passes for a plot, which sees alpha male Oram and sidekick Tom Meeten in a battle for supremacy with a community led by Rhind-Tutt and Willcox. The plot won't tax you too much, but what may take more thought is deciding whether this is a work of Pythonesque comic genius, or a movie take on The Emperor's New Clothes. While it may be a short-term novelty, one feels that public opinion will tend towards the latter.


In a strange parallel world, humans have developed all the trappings of modern civilisation, but have no language and still behave like apes. An alpha male, aided by his sidekick, tries to assert his dominance over a community. Comedy horror, directed by and starring Steve Oram, with Tom Meeten and Julian Rhind-Tutt.
