Have you been to the movies lately? I have. Horror movies are getting pretty shit aren’t they? It’s as if they’ve run out of ideas in the English-speaking world, and need to get all introspective and self-referential in order to be entertaining. Whatever.

Horror used to be heaps of fun. Like this French offering. The characterisations are hilarious, with each character being almost like a cartoon they’re so full of absurdity. Then it’s all wrapped up in a winning idea that lampoon’s mobile phone culture at the same time as keeping the body count satisfying high. Make the effort to find this film, it’s much more worthy of your time than all that sequel crap.
