It had some funny moments but most of the time it comes out to be as a really stupid horror comedy with a retarded level of gore and random situations. I like exploitation cinema but some moments went a little too far: Some scenes were just repulsive to watch. I know this film its not supposed to be taken seriously but this was just stupid. To be honest its only worth watching for the shock value and not much else.

I saw 2 girls with which I had relations and a friend of mine as extras. So there's that.
