Just reviewing the blu-ray disk, not the movie itself.
In case you are put off with the over inflated North American price for this movie.
Buy it direct from Amazon.co.UK, it is a fraction of the price, and the blu-ray being sold is an all region version.
Good quality version.
Death to Region codes.

4.5 out of 5
A group of friends head out to the town of Moodley for a "boys only" weekend in an attempt to get away from their significant others back home and also rediscover themselves. All is well and good. Drinks are had before they left, a fun roadtrip, jokes, ribbing--but everything changes when they find the town of Moodley deserted.
Soon it is discovered the only folks left are the women--and they have a deadly appetite for human flesh. Grotesque female monsters send the boys on the run and into a battle for survival in this throwback to classic horror.
And that's what really sums up this flick for me: classic horror. Prosthetic monsters, excellent makeup, and good old-fashioned blood and guts, along with a storyline that carried with it a sense of depth ala Shaun of the Dead.
This is one of those flicks that are worth watching again because the writing is quite good, with each line feeding off the other--whether subtly or overtly--references to earlier lines/comments, objects and people. Extremely well done.
Not only that, but the cast also had great chemistry and created a buddy-horror flick that reminded me a lot of hanging out with my friends back in the glory days of all-night partying and crude jokes (minus the cannibalistic women, of course).
The '80s-style soundtrack gave this flick an eerie mood that reminded me of the old Nightmare on Elm Street stuff, really setting the tone.
Really happy with this film, and would recommend it in a hot minute.

this is a fun film about a group of buddies who go on a weekend get away to console their friend who just got divorced and find themselves in a town full of crazy zombies. This is so good. It's like monty python mixed with george romero and harold and kumar (plus 2). It able to go from funny to (kinda) scary in an instant, and then back to funny again. If you like the zombie genre at all, you'll love this film.

I saw this before it was announced to be released in North America and finally my wait is over! Pretty funny and great twist on the zombie genre. Gotta love men-hating, female zombies. This movie has the gore but also doesn't take itself too seriously (eg. watergun full of lighter fluid). Highly recommended from both a horror obsessed fan and zombie lover!
