A new cut of the film is being completed in 2011 for international distribution and domestic release in September or November of 2011. Several scenes were consolidated and additional scenes and footage was added or restored. Also music was added and changed in the new cut. The old, (2009) cut is now considered the "Festival Version," and should properly be considered the "alternate" version, the "Official version" will be released theatrically in 2011. See more »
What fun for any horror lover. I must say I am truly surprised! Most other horror/comedy flicks are absolute dreck and not worth the time. But this brought back memories of An American Werewolf in London, and Evil Dead II without being a ripoff. Not bad company for this writer/director/producer. I can't wait to see what he does next, as well as the two male leads who were absolutely, hilariously brilliant! And I've seen some comments here that some thought the ending was probably not the smartest thing to do, but when has the military thoroughly thought out the ramifications of their tactics such as invading Iraq, which turned out not to have WMDs, just being the first blunder and the ingenious setup for the plot. I personally thought the ending was perfect. A soldier who at the beginning is so morally conscientious it gets him killed, becomes the perfect killing machine at the end which comes full circle. The anti war/gun mentality is deftly embedded. The script is witty, ironic, and very, very funny with a balanced dose of pathos thrown in for good measure which made the characters much more believable and human. Overall great entertainment for those of us who love this deliciously twisted genre when it's done right. Two thumbs way up!!
