Double Date Reviews

October 5, 2019
Director Benjamin Barefoot's Double Date, a hugely satisfying comedic thrill-ride. Danny Morgan and Michael Socha share great chemistry as two friends eager to get laid - but they get more than they bargained for from two murderous sisters.

Seductive, hilarious and deviously disturbing, with Double Date Barfoot and Morgan have burst onto the British movie scene with a brilliant blend of horror and comedy. The 40-Year-Old Virgin meets Fatal Attraction.

British horror comedy Double Date comes across as Dennis Wheatley meets Mike Leigh. The mix of laughs and scares don't always come off, but there's much to enjoy here all the same.

Overall, Double Date is a riotous low-budget gem and everything that a lazy genre comedy offering like Lesbian Vampire Hunters should have been.

More spoofy than spooky -- although the nod to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is fan-boy gold -- this flippant frightener is agreeably lowbrow B-movie fun.

For an independent low-budget production, this really punches well above it's weight.

For all its boisterousness, it takes far too long to get to the action.

Crude, unsophisticated but enthusiastically bloody, this British comedy horror feels a bit like The Inbetweeners Movie with multiple stab wounds and cranial trauma.

It's all done with vim and it doesn't take itself too seriously; just as well given the lurid violence and black-magic subplot.

Double Date is a fitfully amusing British comedy-horror.
October 11, 2017
It feels weirdly nasty, unfunny and lame - like a homegrown, humourless Baise-Moi for a 90s ladmag audience.

Comedy and horror don't always get past first base, but debut director Benjamin Barfoot and actor/writer Danny Morgan are capable match-makers in this hilarious skewering of lads-on-the-pull culture.

If the dialogue lacks some snap, the fight scenes are a heady display of fury and fun and Barfoot really gets into the action, whether he's filming revellers partying to Big Narstie or a lengthy, blood-spattered brawl between the sexes.

It is certainly great to applaud a brand-new British entry in the horror genre and one that combines the spirit of Brit-cinema with an age-old appreciation of what FrightFest can offer.

the sort of genre hybrid that is as charming and funny as it is brutal. Meanwhile its feminist serial killings - committed, paradoxically, in the name of a patriarchal 'daddy' - slyly turn the tables on our expectations of both genders.

Double Date is a fantastically entertaining comedy, that had me laughing from beginning to end.

A straightforward but consistently entertaining plot driven by smart dialogue and varied permutations of character interaction, Double Date is a rare fusion of genres that does justice to each.
