Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

What TV director Dirk Campbell's home-grown horror spoof lacks in budget, finesse, genuine scares and acting, it more than makes up for in a wealth of clever ideas that give a neat spin on formula undead mythology. After buying a possessed antique motorbike, which uses blood for petrol and won't kick-start during daylight hours, sleazy rider Neil Morrissey enlists the help of priest Anthony Daniels (better known as C3PO from Star Wars) to exorcise the splatter machine cutting a swathe through Birmingham's highways and hospitals. Cheesy gore, a garlic-breathed detective (Michael Elphick) and tasteless visual gags add to the lunatic fun in this unusually adventurous camp chiller.
