Chainmailed flail-wielding midgets chasing Satanists chasing druggies - Allan Moyle has gone for the grown-up panto approach.
| Original Score: 3/5

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

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.

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

Funny, well-acted nonsense. The best kind of quirkiness.

... 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.

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.

At the very least, one would hope that enough of the talent agents, managers and producers currently using heroin properly tap the vein of Bentley's terrific performance.

Director Moyle (Pump Up the Volume, Empire Records) keeps a sure hand on the proceedings as the film blends comic events with surreal visions and adrenaline-fueled action (and editing).

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

Moyle is as deft a craftsman as ever, utilizing the widescreen frame to create a number of elegant, vibrantly colorful images that give the film a bright, bubbly energy in spite of the violence at its core.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Moyle shows great control over most of Weirdsville, taking joy in Willem Wennekers's screenplay by submerging the action in accelerated colors and embracing the slapstick nature of it all.

A cleverly constructed, capably crafted and often uproarious shaggy-dog black 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

Neither as funny nor as serious as it ought to be.
