Trailer

Anyone besides me seen this? I just heard about it yesterday and was able to watch it on Amazon's Video On Demand last night. My wife and I both found it to be hilarious.

the premise is essentially a spoof of your typical "college coeds in the backwoods meet serial killer hillbillies" type of slasher flick. The twist (as seen in the trailer) is that the hillbillies are just regular guys and the college kids are so inept that they're killing themselves (and freaking out the hillbillies in the process). As the one guy puts it "It's like they've got a suicide pact and they're killing themselves all over the woods!"

All in all a big 2 thumbs up from me! I haven't laughed this hard at a movie in quite some time.

The premise was great, the actors were outstanding. The writing was . . . it could have been a little better.

All in all a fun movie, though.

I don't generally subscribe to or use online streaming services for films, and this isn't playing in a theater near where I live. But I thought the trailer looked positively hilarious, and I love Alan Tudyk in most of his roles. So, I'm probably going to pick it up once a DVD hits the track and then gets put on sale (because I'm a cheap skate). The writing did looked a little sloppy, but I figured the comedic chops of the protagonists would make up for it tenfold.
