The film is described as a dark comedy and it has Dylan Moran – my favourite stand-up comedian – starring, so I expected it to be a funny film. It’s not. It’s told in quite an earnest way, even the visuals are very un-comedy-like. But dark it was, and the macabre moments when everybody just starts dying were somehow “fun”, although I did not laugh. Let’s say I went into this film with the wrong foot.
