I went into this viewing cold having never heard of it before, wasn't really expecting much. I was completely blown away. First off you will want to get in the correct frame of mind for it so break out the tent and hiking boots because this is 100% camp from start to finish. Now imagine you are camping with Kevin Smith and Quentin Tarantino and spend the weekend frying on acid and watching Roger Corman and gay porn. So you get home, talk your aunt into loaning you 10K and hit a couple friends and a few strangers with the 'you want to be in a movie?' line and start filming. This would be that movie. The FX are what they are, the CGI adheres to the 'less is more' model and works very well. The stop motion is adequate much like the claymation in Evil Dead was but much better technically. This movie also boasts one of the best 'well what did you think was going to happen?' endings I have seen ever! I give it 10 stars from the shear amount of pleasure I got from watching (something I think gets lost in the mix at times). Is this for everybody? Most assuredly not. But if Hobo with a Shotgun sits in a place of honor in your collection this is an absolute must see!
On a serious note it is easy to see this studio/team has some genuine skills.. real quality work to the point of being sublime.
