    Are there any reviews available on this. I presume it's a horror comedy given that Simon Peig is involved.

    Saw a trailer on it this evening. Thought I read he was working again with nick frost, but didn’t know it was a finished project. All the same, I’d be interested in seeing it. Good chemistry between the two them on and off screen

    Looks like it could be good fun. Odd to see that Simon Pegg seems to be turning into Robert Bathurst in this...

    I wouldn't bother to be honest. If your going for Simon and Nick they aren't on screen together and is almost like cameo roles. It's not really a horror, comedy or action, it's just plain bad mess. The 'monsters' look like
    komodo dragons

    3/10

    I caught this last night and it was ok, but somewhat forgettable - some fun bits in it (Pegg's character and somenof the other background/minor characters) but a slow start and a few too many jokes not quite landing. The horror stuff takes a while to manifest (though when it does there are a few great comedic scenes in the vein of Evil Dead 2) and the schoolcstuff never quite earns its place, falling far short of the likes of 10 Things I Hate About You.

    All in all, it's not particularly bad but also not particularly good.

    I saw it on Tuesday evening, and I thought it was very funny.

    Did Simon Pegg and Nick Frost write/produce this?

    Just acted in it AFAIK, it was co-written by the director with someone else. I looked up the producers and have never heard of them - Pegg & Frost are listed as exec producers, but there's no indication as to whether they were involved in a hands-on way.

    Having said that, Stolen Pictures is the production company set up by Pegg and Frost and this was its first project. So..m maybe?

    Thought it was pretty poor, expected a lot more from it with Pegg and Frost involved.
