Movie Info

Two luckless stoners begin a truly awful evening when they discover they have a dead girlfriend on their hands in this black comedy from writer and director Allen Moyle. Dexter (Scott Speedman) and Royce (Wes Bentley) are a pair of half-bright slackers living in a nowhere town in Northern Ontario. Dexter and Royce's lack of ambition is compounded by the fact they're both heroin addicts, and they support their habits by dealing dope for Omar (Raoul Bhaneja), a ruthless dealer who's not to be

The paper-thin characters make it feel less like a rounded feature and more like a TV pilot with the promise of more adventures to come.

I kept wishing for a rewrite that sent the Satanists packing and pulled the love story hiding within Wennekers' script to the fore.

Half-funny and half-obvious, Weirdsville gets a little tiresomely silly, but Bentley still has a glare that burns through metal, and his rapport with Speedman is agreeable.

You don't have to be stoned to watch Allan Moyle's latest small-town escapade, but it might help.

Dark and devilishly clever, director Allan Moyle's Weirdsville is a twisted caper comedy.

If there was more vision on the front end, with more thought put into shot composition and less adherence to trendy, attention-deficit filmmaking, Weirdsville might have been an innovative indie gem

Chainmailed flail-wielding midgets chasing Satanists chasing druggies - Allan Moyle has gone for the grown-up panto approach.

November 16, 2007 Full Review Source: thelondonpaper

It's wacky, it's zany, it's loopy, it's freaky, it's daffy - but alas, not the most important one, which is "funny".

Only a trio of bungling Satanists prevent it ending up in routineville.

Anarchic and low budget, make sure you take along your bong.

Allan Moyle's stoner heist movie is a meandering dud.

It's pretty amusing stuff - though it could have been a lot funnier if they had resisted the temptation to shoehorn in quite so many plot twists.

A pleasingly gonzo black comedy pitched somewhere between Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead Stoned and Dude, Where's My Crack?

A quirky, amusing caper that shouldn't work, but somehow does.

Weirdsville is an enjoyable screwball crime thriller with a witty script, inventive direction and superb comic performances.

Director Allan Moyle travels a quirky road too often trod by aspirant indie pics.

The script has the substance and the slacker leads have the chemistry, but the execution fumbles the tourniquet, failing to find any rich vein of wackiness.

... it's piffle, but reasonably entertaining piffle, which ain't nothin' to sneeze at nowadays.

I was laughing well into the film's third act, when most films stop being funny.

Audience Reviews for Weirdsville

Two junkies, who are planning a safe heist to pay off the mobster they owe $8000, clash with Satanists when they interrupt a ritual while burying an overdosed friend. At times this stoned black comedy from the director of PUMP UP THE VOLUME flirts with BIG LEBOWSKI-esque greatness, but some questionable contrivances and forced quirkiness put it in the merely entertaining range.

As the title implies this film is kind of weird, in the same line of comedy as usual suspects. 2 potheads are in debt to a drug dealer, so we have a intertwining story with cults, midgets, and a teenage wanna be. Enjoyable and funny at times. A Canadian Comedy but no more the 3 1/2 stars.

DIRECTED BY: Allan Moyle

When stoners Dexter and Royce mistakenly assume their friend Matilda has overdosed, they can't call the cops because she's OD'd on stolen drugs. So, they decide to bury her body themselves. Good news is she's not dead. Bad news is she wakes up just in time to interrupt a Satanic cult performing a ritual sacrifice in the same place the guys were going to bury her. Our heroes end up on the run from the Satanists, the drug dealer they stole the stash from, and a gang of angry little people all while trying to pull off a heist of their own. It's one crazy night in one crazy town!

The title of this movie totally fits it. It is my kind of movie. I love these off beat movies and all there weird quirks. Loved Wes Bentley in this movie. He was very different from other roles I have seen him in and very funny. The heist to me is the funniest part in the film. I also loved Scott Speedman. Great seeing him do different roles. Just a fun movie with some laughs and some weird situations.

This is a funny and atmospheric dark comedy; it's NOT a horror remake of the classic "Race With the Devil" - it shares two plot incidents, but that is it.
This movie has the gritty indie feel, and since it's Canadian, I'm guessing that the "Trailer Park Boys" series was a big influence for this movie as well as some characters and the set design aesthetic are similar.
This is a "drug adventure" movie as its creators describe it. And that's damn exact. This movie is funny (so rare) and light yet loaded and morose as well. Great indie flick.
NOTE for "Good Stoner Movies" list: This movie is not a strict marijuana movie; the characters are junkies without boundaries and they consume a variety of hard drugs, but they occasionally relax with a joint.
