TITLE & REVIEW

Benny Loves You (2019)

Benny Loves You (2019) This is a parody of Ted , made in the UK. The big difference is that Benny is evil!

Jack (Karl Holt, who also doubled as writer and director) is a lonely workaholic employed by a toy manufacturer. His cow-orker Richard, so named because he is a bit of a Dick, is his rival for promotion to the role of Creative Director. When Jack is inspired to make a serious of murderous dolls based on his kill-crazy buddy Benny, things begin to look up for him. The good news is that a girl at work, Tara ( Lydia Hourihan ), takes a liking to him. The bad news is that Benny's murder-sprees usually happen when he gets jealous of someone else being friends with Jack.

The climax, which features the survivors being chased around by a trio of murderous toys, seems to have a lot of references to other films. However, because this is played for laughs it is happy to call out the more ridiculous aspects of the sub-genre that spawned Chucky and so many other pint-sized terrors.

    Carry On Screaming (1966)

    Carry On Screaming (1966) This is a 1960s parody of the Hammer Horror movies that were popular in that period. Normally Sid James would have taken the lead role, but he was unavailable so they went with a replacement actor.

    The story is set in the late Victorian era. A young man (Jim Dale - The Spaceman And King Arthur ) takes his girlfriend for a romantic stroll in the woods, and she is abducted by a monster of the Frankenstein type. The local police detective (Harry H. Corbett - ) takes over the case.

    The woods are adjacent to the land of a local mad scientist (Kenneth Williams - ) and his vampish sister ( Fenella Fielding ).

    Chillerama (2011)

    Chillerama (2011) This is a portmanteau featuring a trilogy of cheap schlock movies, shown in a 1950s movie theatre. The frame story becomes a movie in its own right - A Zom-B Movie!

    A sperm sprouts teeth and keeps growing. It takes on random bystanders, including scream queens ( Tania Raymonde, Lin Shaye ). General Bukakke (Eric Roberts - Dr Who ) has to contain the threat before it destroys NYC.
  • I Was A Teenage WereBear
    In the original movie, the transformation was a metaphor for puberty. In this musical comedy version, it is a metaphor for homosexuality.
  • Diary of Anne Frankenstein
    Anne Frankenstein and her family are hiding from the Nazis. Hitler wants their family's secret research diary, so he can build his super-weapon - a Golem named Meshugannah (Kane Hodder - Friday the 13th ). This will not end well for anyone.

    The Cottage (2008)

    The Cottage (2008) Bumbling brothers Peter (Reece Shearsmith - League of Gentlemen ) and David (Andy Serkis - Lord of the Rings ) kidnap mouthy Liverpudlian Tracey ( Jennifer Ellison ). The plan is to extort money from her stepfather, a violent gangster. Naturally it all goes horribly wrong for them.

    The bad news is, the gangster sends a couple of Triad hit-men after the crooks. Even worse, the cottage is near a village filled with old people who wander around like a plague of zombies.

    The story has a genre shift at the midpoint, much like From Dusk Til Dawn , where it changes from crime thriller to straight-up horror. Actually this goes from comedy-thriller to slasher, but the comparison is close enough.

    There is an after-credits sequence with Tracey's stepfather (Stephen Berkoff - Werewolves Vs Strippers ).

    Freaks of Nature (2015)

    Freaks of Nature (2015) This is set in a small town in the USA where humans live in peace with supernatural creatures. For the moment, at least. However, there is a simmering undercurrent of racial tension.

    The protagonist, a teenage boy, wants to date Lorelei ( Vanessa Hudgens ). However, instead he gets stuck with Petra ( Mackenzie Davis ) when the race-war breaks out.

    Knights of Badassdom (2013)

    Knights of Badassdom (2013) The prologue explains the backstory, which is predictable enough. There is a magic book, and when the contents are read aloud it summons demons into the world. The only original aspects are that this time the book was created by Dr John Dee, the Elizabethan wizard, and that some LARPers ended up buying it on E-Bay.

    The hero (Ryan Kwanten - True Blood ) gets dumped by his girlfriend. His flatmates Eric (Steve Zahn - ) and Hung (Peter Dinklage - Game of Thrones ) try to cheer him up by taking him to a Live Action Roleplay (LARP) event. The rest of the team includes Danny Pudi ( Captain America: Winter Soldier ) and Summer Glau , while the Game Master is Jimmi Simpson ( Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter ).

    Our all-star cast go on a merry quest. Naturally, a demon gets accidentally summoned and predictably goes on a killing spree. However, this is well handled and the resulting film is an above-average effort.

    Man With Two Brains, The (1983)

    Man With Two Brains, The (1983) Dr Hfuhruhurr (Steve Martin - Bowfinger ) is brain surgeon, hyper-competent but arrogant - the opposite of Martin's character in The Jerk. He marries one of his patients, Dolores Benedict ( Kathleen Turner ). Unfortunately, she is a manipulative femme fatale - an exaggerated parody of Turner's character in Body Heat.

    The doctor is invited to a symposium in Vienna, so he leaves Dr Jones (Jeffrey Combs - Re-Animator ) in charge of the surgery and takes Delores along for a honeymoon. There he befriends the local mad scientist, Dr Necessiter (David Warner - Time Bandits ), who experiments on human brains that are collected from the victims of the local serial killer.

    The doctor, frustrated by his wife's manipulations, falls in love with one of Necessiter's brains. He decides to stay in Vienna permanently, and buys a house from the local realtor (James Cromwell - Star Trek: First Contact ). However, Dolores the femme fatale will not give up easily.

As in The Three Amigos they mistake an actor for the role he has played. Bruce Campbell ( Evil Dead ) is promptly kidnapped. He is confused, and thinks he is in a movie - like in Galaxy Quest .

    The film is filled with references to Campbell's earlier works in the Genre. Ted Raimi ( Skinner ) plays several roles, so you should know what kind of movie to expect.

Once there he discovers that he has wandered into a parody of The Cat and the Canary . Well, this is literally a William Castle co-production with Hammer House Of Horror!

    The family have to stay in their mansion every night, or else they will be deprived of their right to a massive inheritance. Uncle Roderick (Robert Morley - ) is a stock character who delivers exposition. Cousin Morgana ( Fenella Fielding ) is a raven-haired femme fatale, the kind of role that Fielding is best known for in movies like Carry On Screaming (1966) . The one who sticks out is Cousin Cecily ( Janette Scott ), an innocent-looking blonde.

    Paul Dood's Deadly Lunch Break (2021)

    Paul Dood's Deadly Lunch Break (2021) Paul Dood is a middle-aged man who lives with his mother in a suburb of Winchester in England. He works as a shop assistant, but his real career is as a live-streaming influencer on a video website named Trend Ladder. One day he gets the chance to take his career to the next level, by auditioning for an American celebrity. He even takes his wheelchair-bound mother, on what should be the happiest day of his life.

    Unfortunately the journey is beset with a series of encounters with some of the most terrible people imaginable. They are the most recognisable faces in the movie - a jobsworth (Steve Oram - ), a cultural appropriator (Johnny Vegas - ), a creepy priest (Kris Marshall - The Most fertile Man In Ireland ) and his bossy assistant ( Alice Lowe ). Finally, the celebrity is the American version of Simon Cowell - a stereotype at seeing peoples' worst traits and then mocking them horribly.

    The stress of the events that day basically destroys Paul's life. Driven beyond the edge of sanity, he sets out to kill everyone on his hit-list. The death scenes he fantasises about are a lot more successful than what actually happens.

    The police, led by an Asian female officer (the equivalent of Yaz in Dr Who ), close in on Paul. He gets stuck in a hostage situation with his love interest, Clemmie The Cleaner ( Katherine Parkinson ), and manages to stream a second audition piece.

    Slaughterhouse Rulez (2018)

    Slaughterhouse Rulez (2018) This is a British effort, the title a parody on High School drama Ciderhouse Rules. It evokes a world similar to Kingsman , where British Society is divided into aristocrats and paupers. The protagonist, a teenage pauper, is sent to a boarding school that is like a mixed-gender version of St Trinians. There is also an element of Hogwarts from Harry Potter . In fact, one of the Prefects even paraphrases Dumbledore, when he says that the wood are out of bounds to anyone who wishes to avoid a most painful death.

    The Headmaster (Michael Sheen - Good Omens (2019) ) is set up to be a bad guy, when he gives a Trump-style Make Slaughterhouse Great Again quote. His plan is to allow fracking in the forest, which will destroy the water table and polute the atmosphere. Luckily all it actually does is unleash a horde of carniverous beasties that start to devour the cast.

    There are a couple of familiar faces. A school-teacher (Simon Pegg - Mission Impossible: Fallout ) is obsessed with getting back with his estranged girlfriend ( Margot Robbie ). Meanwhile, a hippy (Nick Frost - Shaun Of The Dead ) is camping out in the woods to protest the fracking. Since the movie was not written and directed by their co-conspirator Edgar Wright , Pegg and Frost are just supporting characters.

    The protagonist and his room-mate (Asa Butterfield - The space Between us ) have to save the day. Yes, this boils down to a teenagers-versus-monsters story.

    Snatchers (2019)

    Snatchers (2019) This is a period piece from the far-off olden days of 2012. An American High School girl is obsessed with her ex-boyfriend, even though he is acting very strangely. She manages to seduce him, and lose her virginity to him. The next day she has symptoms of a rapidly developing pregnancy. Everyone at her High School is a judgemental gossip, so she has to seek help from a nerdy girl instead.

    The girls head to the Free Clinic, which is being picketed by a pro-birther so presumably it doubles as an abortion clinic. It turns out that the pregnancy is not a human foetus, and instead happens to be a deadly alien. The story turns from teen comedy into straight-up horror-comedy.

    The mutant foetus is the result of an ancient Aztec curse. It causes the biggest police station massacre since The Terminator (1984) , then tries to spawn itself across the whole town by possessing the town's population of horny teenagers.

    Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil (2010)

    Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil (2010) Tucker (Alan Tudyk - Serenity ) and Dale (Tyler Labine - Reaper ) are a couple of scruffy-looking thirty-somethings who buy a Cabin in the Woods . All they want to do is hang out, drink a few beers and do some fishing in the lake ...

    Unfortunately, twenty years previously the area was the scene of the Memorial Day Massacre. A group of college kids, familiar with the tropes of horror movies, think that our protagonists are bloodthirsty murderous hillbillies. The kids arm themselves in the way that horror movie victims ought to (but rarely do), spiralling down into a Lord of the Flies situation. And violently hilarious, hilariously violent mayhem ensues.

    The obvious comparison is with the above-mentioned Joss Whedon film. However, this is played entirely for laughs. It is original insofar as the film is from the hillbillies' perspective. Every survival movie from Deliverance onwards has a set of tropes that are mocked here.

    Rather than straight-up horror, this takes Jekyll-and-Hyde in a comedy-thriller direction. Since Teddy Hyde is a master of all skills, he becomes a one-man burglary crew and steals a priceless jewelry collection. When his brother (Jon Pertwee - Dr Who ) finds out, he makes Henry return the jewels before the cops can find out. Unfortunately, Henry has lost his teddy-boy super-skills.

His pets (voiced by Reynolds himself) give him advice - the evil Scottish cat gives devilish tips, while the big dopey dog tells him to Beee Good like E.T. .

    Our protagonist works with a handful of young women. Anna Kendrick takes a liking to him, but Gemma Arterton is the one he wants to be with. However, she does not reciprocate.

    It turns out our hero is haunted by a dark past. This is basically a comedy about a seral killer. It has very dark subject matter, but manages to pull the comedy off quite well.

    The dynamic duo, along with the lawyer and the butler (Michael Gough - Sleepy Hollow ), are locked in the dead man's mansion overnight with the other heirs named in the will. Glamour is provided by Shirley Eaton , who went on to become a Bond Girl the next year in Goldfinger (1963) .

The director, Jason Flemyng, is an actor best known from mockney gangster movies ... and his old pal Jason Statham ( The Transporter ) is credited as the fight consultant.

    Once every fifty years the Vampire overlords of Great Britain meet up.

    The vamps are trapped in the farmhouse, surrounded by the mercenaries. Neither side has the upper hand, in a nasty stalemate. The human hostages, including the farmer (Dexter Fletcher - Kick Ass ) and his wife, are in a tough spot.

    Werewolf Comedy Movies

    American Werewolf in Paris, An (1997)

    American Werewolf in Paris, An (1997) Two decades after the original classic by John Landis comes this overly comical effort. The original had a sense of gritty realism, with elements of actual horror. In contrast, this is a poor follow-up.

    A trio of American extreme sports lads visit Paris. While bungee-jumping off the Eiffel tower they meet Seraphine ( Julie Delphy ), who has a dangerous secret. The protagonist, Andy (Tom Everett Scott - Z Nation ), becomes obsessed with her. Then he and his friends fall foul of a gang of skinhead werewolves.

    Seraphine wants to find a cure for lycanthropy, although all she did was create an instant-transformation inducer. However, it turns out that there is a magical cure ... just eat the heart of the werewolf who turned you. Unfortunately, Andy spends the night with Seraphine and wakes up with a werewolf bite ...

    This movie hits a lot of the same plot points as the original, but it has a much more comedic tone. Characters like Amy ( Julie Bowen ) are introduced, but we never care if anything happens to them. This is not helped by the unconvincing CGI, which replaced the original's ground-breaking practical effects.

After all, he has supernaturally granted superhuman strength and speed, while his victims are normal humans who only broke a few laws. In real life, people often get a trial before their execution.

    Millionaire businessman Sidney Swallows (Jannik Bisson - Murdoch Mysteries ) moves to town, and sets up a brewery to make and distribute chicken milk beer. He and his minions are alien shapeshifters, so at least the wolf-cop can take on someone his own strength and speed now. They build a frankensteinian monster, so the police are distracted.

    The town's new mayor, Bubba (Kevin Smith - Mallrats ), supports the new brewery because it will bring jobs to the area. Also he is corrupt and on the take. Unfortunately the aliens are using the beer as part of their plan to infect humans and conquer the world. This is a more gross-out comedy version of Halloween 3: Season of the Witch .

    Anna And The Apocalypse (2018)

    Anna And The Apocalypse (2018) This is about a teenage schoolgirl named Anna ( Ella Hunt ). She attends a High School with the regular asortment of cliched characters, including the token nasty teacher (Paul Kaye - Dracula Untold (2014) ). The kids have a tendency to break into song, like in High School Musical.

    As in that other great British zombie comedy, Shaun of the Dead , it turns out that a zombie apocalypse has started when nobody was paying attention.

    The musical numbers are quite impressive, but the fight scenes are rather less so. The zombies are of the Romero kind, slow-moving brain-eaters

    Burying The Ex (2014)

    Burying The Ex (2014) The protagonist (Anton Yelchin - Star Trek (2009) ) is a nerdy twenty-something American who works in a store that sells magic goods. He has a hot girlfriend ( Ashley Greene ). Unfortunately she is a crazy obsessive - like the Amanda Peet character in American Woman AKA Devil Woman . She cannot stand his best friend, who may not be played by Jack Black but is still the living embodiment of the seven deadly sins.

    The girlfriend from hell dies in an accident, and the boyfriend moves on with goth-chick Alexandria Daddario . Unfortunately there is a cursed idol nearby, like in Picture of Dorian Grey . This one raises the girlfriend from the dead, as a zombie.

    Directed by Joe Dante , this follows his usual path of combining horror with comedy. While the comedy is funny, the horror aspect is played with seriousness and full-on gore.

    Cooties (2014)

    Cooties (2014) Substitute teacher Clint (Elijah Wood - The Faculty ) turns up for his first day at work. The school crossing guard is Hurley from Lost , and he is more interested in smoking weed than doing job. This should be the first sign that something is wrong, although it is completely unrelated to the main storyline. Nevertheless, it tells us a lot about the characters.

    Some of the chicken nuggets in the school cafeteria are infected with a zombie virus. The good news is that anyone who has hit puberty is immune. The bad news is that the school's pupils are mostly pre-pubescent, so by the end of the lunch hour they are a raging band of Fast Zombies.

    Clint manages to hide out with a few of the other teachers. They include his former High School crush ( Alison Pill ), her boyfriend Wade the gymn teacher (Rainn Wilson - The Meg ). The other TV actors in the cast are Tracy (Jack McBrayer - 30 Rock) and an annoying Xian woman named Rebekkah ( Nasim Pedrad ). Horror director Leigh Whannell rounds out the cast as Doug the brain-damaged biology teacher.

    This is a shockingly violent film when one considers the antagonists are pre-pubescent zombies. Presumably Elijah Wood was still on good terms with the Hobbit stunt-doubles from Lord of the Rings , and found a willing team of child-impersonating stunt-zombies.

    Little Monsters (2019)

    Little Monsters (2019) Jeff is a struggling musician in his thirties, who earns a living as a busker in Australia. His girlfriend kicks him out, so he sleeps on his sister's couch because her five-year-old son has the spare bedroom. While attempting to earn his keep he takes the kid to kindergarten, where he meets the gorgeous teacher Miss Caroline ( Lupita Nyongo ). So far, so rom-com.

    Luckily, this movie has something to set it apart from the others. The children are taken on a day-trip to the petting zoo, where they can meet childrens' entertainer Teddy (Josh Gadd - Pixels (2015) ). Unfortunately the zoo is right next to a US military test-site. Yes, the US military is testing a zombie formula … although for safety's sake they are not doing it on American soil. Lucky Australia gets to play host to the test site.

    The zombies escape and overrun the petting zoo. Caroline and Jeff must save the kids, without actually letting on how dire the situation really is. And hilarity ensues.

    Night of the Living Deb (2015)

    Night of the Living Deb (2015) The story starts in Portland, Maine, on the night before the Fourth of July. Debbie (who looks like a shorter, perkier version of Felicia Day ) has a one-night stand with a generic pretty-boy (Michael Cassidy - People Of Earth ). Next morning, after an embarrassing walk of shame, she discovers the town has been hit by a zombie apocalypse.

    The bickering pair head to the boy's family home. His father (Ray Wise - Twin Peaks ) runs the water treatment plant. It turns out that the company's environmentally unsafe procedures have contaminated the water with a brain-eating parasite.

    This is an indie movie crowd-funded by kickstarter. The result is a pretty decent rom-zom-com, not the usual SyFy-type garbage.

    Office Uprising (2018)

    Office Uprising (2018) The protagonist, Desmond (Brenton Thwaites - Oculus (2013) ), is a slacker who works for the US military-industrial complex. The first act is basically a day-in-the-life, as we meet his love interest ( Jane Levy ) and his token ethnic friend (Karan Soni - Miracle Workers ). We also get a lot of generic office-worker humour. The company is about to be merged with a rival, which means that excess staff members will be trimmed from the payroll.

    The next day Desmond turns up late for work as usual. Unfortunately he does not realise that his cow-orkers have been dosed with an experimental energy drink that makes everyone hyper-aggressive. For example, the regional manager (Zachary Levi - Shazaam ) wants to take over the company. The sad fact is that he has the ambition and the talent to actually make his plan work. He also has an army of minions who are basically Fast Zombies.

    This is most like a comedy version of The Belko Experiment , down to the casting of Gregg Henry as the man in charge.

    Scout's Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse (2015)

    Scout's Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse (2015) This starts in a scientific laboratory, where a lone scientist is at work with minimal safety or security protocols. The janitor, while messing about, discovers that the experiments concern a Fast Zombie. Naturally, the zombie contagion gets out.

    The protagonists in the story are a trio of boy scouts who live in small-town USA. They look old enough to be venture scouts, but they are in High School so this is just another example of twenty-somethings cast as teenagers.

    The scouts' main concern is to get in with the cool kids at school, like Halston Sage . Their typical teenage boy problems continue through the zom-pocalypse.

    The main thing that stands out about this film is the zombies themselves. Most of the time they are slow-moving Romero zombies, so the good guys can run away from them with minimum hassle. However, whenever the plot demands it the infected are Fast Zombies. The virus can also jump species, since a deer and a house-cat both get infected. In other words, it would be practically impossible to control the epidemic.

    In the climax, the scouts use the skills that earned them their merit badges to macguyver up some home-made weapons. Will they be able to save their town?

    Stalled (2013)

    Stalled (2013) It is the Xmas party in a British office building. The janitor is hard at work, fixing the womens toilets. The good news is, he gets to spy on girls in skimpy outfits making out. The bad news is, there is an outbreak of zombie-itis and people start to eat each other.

    The movie is a horror-comedy with some camera shots inspired by the works of Sam Raimi . The protagonists are trapped in a confined space, and the tension slowly ramps up as the bathroom gradually fills with more and more zombies.

    There is also an after-credits sequence, although it does not really add much to the story.

    Zombeavers (2014)

    Zombeavers (2014) A couple of truckers drive some barrels of toxic waste along the backroads of rural USA. Unfortunately the driver is one of the title characters from Clerks , so they end up losing a barrel. It drifts downstream, until it gets stopped by a beaver dam.

    Later, three sexy tweenage girls go to stay in a Cabin in the Woods . As always, it is right next to a lake. The good news is, it is not Crystal Lake or even Lake Placid . The bad news is, it is the lake that the beavers created with their dam.

    This parodies a few different movies in the horror genre. However, it is not just a parody - it is more of a horror-comedy, like Gremlins . Rather than just endlessly mock genre films, it is both scary and funny in alternate turns. Perhaps this could be the Critters for the new century. Unfortunately, those movies had teenage boy protagonists so appealed to a more adventure-loving audience.

    This effort clings to horror movie tropes that became cliches long ago. However, it adds a new twist. If you get bitten by a zombie, vampire or werewolf then you turn into the thing that bit you. But if you get bitten by a zombeaver, it turns out that you become a were-beaver.

    Scary Movie Franchise

    Scary Movie 3 (2003)

    Scary Movie 3 (2003) Cindy ( Anna Faris ) has moved on from the last Scary Movie. She is a TV journalist, but now her new boyfriend's family is being harrassed by supernatural occurrances. There is the creepy videotape from Ringu , and the crop circles from Signs ...

    The President Of The US (Leslie Nielsen - Spy Hard ) has to keep everything together.

    This is the first in the series that is not written/produced/directed by the Wayans Brothers. They handed the reins over to Zucker (a parody veteran from the Airplane series), who still managed to include a high representation of African-Americans.

    Scary Movie 4 (2006)

    Scary Movie 4 (2006) This is the fourth in the series, and the second Zucker effort, so if you've seen the previous film you should know exactly what to expect. Seriously. The plots are remarkably similar.

    Cindy ( Anna Faris ) has moved on from the last Scary Movie. She is now taking care of an OAP lady who lives in The Grudge House. Her new love interest is Craig Bierko ( Long Kiss Goodnight ).

    Aliens invade. AGAIN. This time it is Tr-Ipods! Bierko takes the kids to safety (like Homer/Cruise in War of the Worlds (2005) ) and ends up in a basement with Michael Madsen ( Sin City ).

    POTUS (Leslie Nielsen - Forbidden Planet ) dithers, insults the entire United Nations and parodies George Walker Bush in other ways too. He also provides the most eye-catching screen nudity since Misha Barton in Closing the Ring.

    Cindy goes in search of the solution. She teams up with Regina Hall , who has come back from the dead as a super-horny journalist. They visit Bill Pullman ( Independence Day ) in an homage to The Village , where he lives with Carmen Electra (who died in the first movie, but who is keeping count?).

    The Aliens' plan for the human race is to torture them to death. But they do not use just ANY torture chamber - it is the one from the Saw series.

    This starts with Charlie Sheen ( Being John Malkovich ) and Lindsay Lohan enacting a parody of supernatural shocker Paranormal Activity .

    Cindy ( Anna Faris ) has moved on from the last Scary Movie, and been usurped as female lead by the younger (but still comedically talented) Ashley Tisdale . She finds herself the reluctant stepmother to a couple of feral girls. This leads on to mockery of recent ghost stories - specifically Mama . There is also a sub-plot that parodies Black Swan .
