DOUBLE DATE

DOUBLE DATE

A gem of a debut feature, Benjamin Barfoot's Double Date is one of the best British horror/comedy icks since Shaun of the Dead. Broad humour meets situational comedy, populated with likeable characters and a streak of bloody crimson. You can clearly see the heart that's threaded through every frame of Double Date. It shines like a beacon, and helps solidify the film as an instant cult classic. As long as you don't expect the horror to outweigh the comedy, Double Date is going to take you out for the time of your life. It really is that good. (Gareth Jones, DreadCentral.com)
