Great original Surprise story for a film. Great Actors and characters. Storyboard well thought out Only thing lacking in concentration was definitely the Audio needed more dynamics less cheap orchestral and more old remix related tunes.

Over the top, ultra-violent satire horror flick

A fun satire that appears more expensive than it really is. The performances are solid and everyone knows what type of film they're in. The bride goes on an entertaining journey and takes us all with her. The film is very violent but so is class hierarchy and oppression. the commentary about whose lives matter are especially chilling. A great set up and the film delivers even to its nutters conclusion. A hearty time had by all. The jokes are unexpected but land well. The arrogance of the rich and of those that support them is on display and when the comeuppance comes for them it is bombastic and tone perfect.
