This is the last of the Project Greeenlight films, and I have to say that after two lame ass coming-of-age flicks produced by the makers of that reality show they went out with a bang! The story of a group of random people who are trapped inside a bar because bloodthirsty creatures outside want to kill and eat them, and not in that order, is a total hoot! Firstly, this flick is hilarious! It's filled with off-the-wall humor that I really got a kick out of, and the director added some creativity in the mix by having each character, during their first moment on screen, get introduced by a biography that tells you their name (no one has a proper name, it's their "title" like "Hero" or "Drunken Loser"), their occupation and their life expectancy within the movie. Jason Mewes, who has a cameo as one of the patrons, plays himself with a bad perm and dies a particularly gruesome death (his life expectancy reads "He's already surpassed our expectations"). And those horny little baby creatures had me in stitches as they tried to hump anything with a hole. The gore is abundant, as is the profanity and such, but it's a fast and fun horror movie. Only the fact that certain sub-plots aren't brought to their full conclusion brings it down a notch. Check it out!
