Storyline

There is a place... a place called Grockleton, wherein, high on a hill-top stands the lonely Beesley's Manor, governed by the villainous 'Landlord' and his lowly male counterparts (Pooch, Pike and the diesel-swilling Dobbin). Always on the look-out for new female company to help carry on the Beesley name, the Landlord keeps a watchful eye over Grockleton and anyone who dares to enter his land. When three improbable heroes stumble unsuspectingly into the Beesley's realm they are cruelly snared into a menacing hunt and an unstoppable frenzy of heart racing mayhem! Will the Landlord triumph and collect his 'trophies' (and maybe even a future bride?), or can the unlikely trio be victorious against him in his own game? Written by Official Website

Transgression
27 August 2011 | by ttapolaSee all my reviews

This is a transgression. Not only is this movie stupid, but the people who made it are too, and *I can prove it*. Read on.

At the time of writing, there are *nine* 10/10 reviews. There's just the fact SIX of them are totally fake, two of them are possibly fake and the ninth, unless fake, is completely wrong. The proof? Well, out of the group of six fakes, there are *three* from UK, submitted between 27 Jun 2008 and 4 Jul 2008, and the other *three* from US, submitted between 7 Apr 2011 and 4 May 2011. ALL SIX reviewers have reviewed *only* this movie. That amounts to just too much convenient "coincidental" timing to be believable, the logical conclusion being that these six reviews are written by people affiliated with this "production". Occam's Razor, people! Of the two possibly fake reviews, one reviewer has only three reviews on IMDb and the other one has six. The ninth reviewer has 30 reviews, but then again, they may not understand the concept of a review. My question to the group of six (or three with two IMDb accounts each) reviewers is: How stupid do you think people are?

OK, I now actually get to do the review proper, but it will be short. The "script" is primary school grade. The "acting" is primary school grade. The term "directing" doesn't even apply here. The "cinematography" is just a crime against all proper cinematographers and the almost omnipresent blue-screen work is atrocious. It's so incredibly horrible that at least once a minute one has to watch away before it becomes unbearable, since the "editing" is so sluggish it offers no variety. As someone who doesn't judge anyone hastily, I did indeed endure this "movie" from start to finish. If you haven't, for your sanity's sake, please avoid this garbage. A rare *true* 1/10 "movie", with no redeeming values whatsoever. Watch Bad Taste instead to see how Classic ultra-low budget horror comedy is made.
