A micro-budget movie made with love

One look at the trailer tells you exactly what kind of movie this is - a low-budget horror comedy made with love by people who love horror and comedy. The budget is lower-than-Troma-movie low - something like $5,000 - and the actors and directors and writers are the same people. This can be a recipe for disaster, yet somehow in this movie, there's a lot to love. Landing someplace between Evil Dead, Shaun of the Dead and Dude Where's My Car for stoner shlockiness, the film offers goofy fun for the kind of people who can enjoy Troma movies. (It's no surprise that Lloyd Kaufman has a cameo in this.)

It's not for everyone - the characters are clueless Gen-Z stoners who probably shouldn't be allowed near a car, let alone a gun, and the deer-monster is gloriously fake. But the movie lampshades its failings, turning them into a shared joke. And the dopey characters are fun to cheer for - and easy to mourn when things go south as they inevitably will. If this sounds like the kind of thing you'd enjoy, smoke up, laugh along with it and enjoy the ride.

Made with love of the horror comedy genre...

Stumbling upon the 2024 horror comedy "A Most Atrocious Thing" by random chance here in 2024, of course I opted to sit down and watch it. In fact, it being a horror comedy that I hadn't already seen was sufficient to make me sit down and watch it. But I have to say that I was definitely also lured in by the movie's cover.

Sure, I had zero expectations to what writers Christian Hurley, Ben Oliphint, Dylan DeVol and Max Shepardson had to offer. So you could say that they had every opportunity to entertain me here.

The storyline was actually good, because it was a mixture between "Evil Dead" and "Cabin Fever". I have to say that I actually enjoyed the script and the narrative in the movie. Sure, it felt like a homage to "Evil Dead", but it worked out nicely.

I am usually skeptic about movie that also star the writers and/or directors. But it played out well enough in this movie. Why? Well, because "A Most Atrocious Thing" was made with a lot of spirit and love of the horror comedy genre. It was very obvious that the writers and directors were fans of the genre and brought their own spin on the horror comedy to the screen in an entertaining manner.

Needless to say that I wasn't familiar with the cast ensemble in the movie. But the actors did put on good performances throughout the course of the 75 minutes that the movie ran for.

The deer in the movie looked so fake that it was hilarious to look at. It actually worked out well enough in favor of the movie, since it was so fake that it added to the overall enjoyment of the movie, provided you don't mind questionable creature effects. It should be noted, though, that the special effects in the movie were otherwise actually good for a movie of this caliber.

My rating of directors Christian Hurley and Ben Oliphint's 2024 movie "A Most Atrocious Thing" lands on a six out of ten stars.

Started bad, got worse, then I quit.

I had a rough start with the movie. The dialogue and acting were weak, and the costuming and CGI for the deer were downright ridiculous. The narration at the beginning was absurd, with a voice that didn't fit at all. This was all before the opening credits rolled, and I was amazed at my own persistence in continuing to watch. I've never been tempted to stop watching a movie so quickly-I considered quitting three times before the credits even finished.

The sound effects and soundtrack were a huge miss. The audio created a sense of dread and gloom that didn't match the dialogue or the on-screen content, which felt like a lame attempt at a party vibe. It was as if the music was made for a horror film while the acting was out of sync.

The evil deer character couldn't have been worse. The costume looked like it was made by my six-year-old brother, and the acting was just as bad.

By the time I reached chapter two, I was completely baffled as to why I hadn't stopped watching. It wasn't even "so bad it's good"-it was just bad.

Wasn't able to finish this one. Made it 20 min into the 70 min runtime. Not sure how it ended, but it never started.
