Funny spoof of a horror film with a charming cast
This movie was exactly what I thought it would be and that's a good thing. A perfect mix of humor, suspense and a nice compliment of blood and weed. The movie starts out with a pair of lovable, down on their luck brothers dealing with their infamous father, played by the always wild and entertaining Tom Sizemore. The main lead, Trent Modine(played wonderfully by Shannon Brown), and his half brother, Joey(played by the raunchy yet hilarious Simon Rex) decide to move to the small town of Mooseheart to start a new life. This is when the story takes off and the roller coaster begins. As we follow Trent through the story he encounters some of the wildest characters you'll ever want to meet. The film is great for exactly what it is, a light hearted horror spoof. The cast is the highlight of this film. Tom Sizemore, Danny Trejo, Simon Rex, Ray Wise, Jason Mewes are all brilliantly cast for their respective roles led by Shannon Brown who carries the lead perfectly as the angst ridden, down on his luck ordinary guy that is surrounded by chaos and over the top characters. The chemistry between Trent and Joey and Trent and Madison is genuinely strong. The writing works well and the cinematography is spot on. I had a blast watching this and I'm sure you will too!
