Dude Bro Party Massacre III

Dude Bro Party Massacre III ★★★★

This affectionate homage to goofy 80s slasher movies is maybe a bit on the long side but that would be my only criticism. There are a tonne of gags throughout and, sure, while not every one of them lands, most do. There is always something going on so if you’re not being amused at any given moment, it won’t be long before you’re guffawing at some absurdity or other.

All the characters are so likeably silly that it’s hard not to succumb to the charm of the performers and their sheer glee as they attack the material for all its worth.

All art is subjective, of course, and humour perhaps most of all but DBPM III tickled my funny bone more times than I can remember. To my mind, it’s worth a million Scary Movies but, sadly, it'll never be seen by as many people as have watched any one of those films.

Oh, is it just me or is Mother Face actually quite creepy?
