The generally likable performers do what they can with thinly drawn characters whose traits are limited to "virgin" and "ditz," but it's hard to care much about what happens to them even as generic archetypes.
Attempts scares and yucks in equal measure and fails to deliver either.
This movie wants to be a gory, silly love letter to horror and horror fandom. It wants to be fun, and fun it is.
Watching it, you imagine Egerton and Co. patting themselves on the backs after every take.
At best, it's just lukewarm genre fodder.
Horror's goal is simply delivering fun. The thrill of constant frights releases rollercoaster-level endorphins the fans can't get enough of the rush. Blood Fest shoves it right in our faces and then some.
Though never particularly scary, 'Blood Fest' is entertaining and gives genre fans the opportunity to feel clever as they spot the references to a wide range of horror films.
Demands simplification, and when Rooster Teeth feels comfortable enough to goof around in a theme park setting, their work comes alive.
Constantly pointing out what happens in horror movies is not clever. Characters repeatedly saying "This is usually when something bad happens!" is not funny. And having your heroes recognize that they're in a horror movie is not a novel idea.
Extremely gory horror comedy gleefully lives up to its name.
The frustrating thing about Blood Fest is that it can't seem to decide what kind of film it is.
If you're able to look past [the] flaws, or simply accept them, Blood Fest should certainly please a great many. Played right, it could become the party horror film of the year.
