A bit rough around the edges, even for HGL. What makes this a pleasure, however is the addition of intentional humor and batty character work to the director's familiar splatter formula. Elizabeth Davis plays the deranged Miss Pringle with a drag queen's finely tuned sense of camp, while Gretchen Wells is a hoot as a lovably dim yet dauntless would-be Nancy Drew.
- - great prologue between two polystyrene heads - seemed akin to something I would create after 8 beers in my parents’ basement. Next Colin Farrell w/down syndrome kicks off scalpfest under the watchful eye of a stuffed leopard named Napoleon. Rather deliciously ridiculous.
