Review

This is one of that all-too-common breed of UK comedies - ones that simply aren't funny. Clever idea, but so s-l-o-w, so badly acted, and so unfunny. The special effects were mixed, some really obvious and stupid, others, like the hand pierced toward the end, really quite clever.

The best scene was probably the exorcism, but even that was four minutes too long, and rather too predictable.

As for horror, well, not really.

To enjoy this movie, you'd need a few mates and several pints. So why not get a decent movie
