A low-budget British vampire comedy with more bark than bite, Eat Locals feels like a school reunion project for survivors of Guy Ritchie's early gangster films.
...any movie where a granny vampire lets loose with a machine gun to the strains of The Damned has its heart in the right place.
There is enough ability here for sure to make this worth a look. But somewhere between page and screen, whatever it was that attracted all that talent has evaporated into the night.
It's an energetic but unsurprising film, with Flemyng's most obvious contribution being his gathering of an above-par cast that includes old colleagues such as Charlie Cox and Dexter Fletcher.
Be warned, the wittiest thing about this bite-sized-budget Brit horror is its misleading title.
Nothing works in the directing debut of noted character actor Jason Flemyng.
An ambitious film that suffers from a visibly stretched budget, Eat Locals fails to live up to the promise of its wonderful title but does have some great moments.
A vampire film without any bite.
The special and visual effects are too frequently deployed and also desperately unconvincing, and it's a shame the script isn't just a shade or two funnier.
combines the tropes of vampire films with the Little England satire of Royston Vasey to show the accidental centrality of small-town British parochialism to a global economic scene where religious and national interests are trumped by corporate ones
Parallels with everything from Shaun of the Dead to What We Do In the Shadows go down a treat. There's even a nice little bit of social class dialogue bubbling under the surface that results in a final and very wry political money shot.
Neil Marshall's Dog Soldiers did much the same thing with far more wit, energy and innovation.
