| Average, so please overlook the 1 and 10 reviews !
"One Must Fall" is a combination of horror and black comedy but doesn't succeed in both genres. Reviews are either a 10 or a 1 but the truth is somewhere inbetween.
The story has an interesting premise: 2 friends in need of a new job both start at a crime scene clean up company. Soon they fall into the hands of a serial killer. Set in the '80's with fun references (posters of "Jaws" and "The Goonies", Janet Jackson, Reagan, house telephones and old computers) doesn't make it a comedy.
It also isn't scary, disturbing or creepy for a horror film. Mostly bloody crime scenes with body parts. The second half is where the story fails to keep you entertained. Especially when the unconvincing killer is introduced who talks so much that he'll put you to sleep of boredom. Some gore and a couple of brutal killlings can't save this even with the actors trying. The last half hour is basically a non scary "Hostel" where you check your watch several times.
It's not the worst out there, but not recommended either.
