Summary: This movie is a blast!

I saw the movie in a theater and it is pretty clear that it deserves the theater even though it is evident that it had a low budget. I was really satisfied! I enjoyed the film for the whole 80 minutes and it had not a one boring spot. One crazy idea is followed by another (the most obscure is entrance of jehovist who happens to be blue movie actor, skating on a livers or scene with the eye are good ones as well), one witty line goes after the other and makers have put in it a good measure of gags. Yes, Choking Hazard is low budget, but so what? It extremely funny. Every fan of good (not only grim or zombie) comedies should attend as this movie. Choking hazard is absolute in its own way. I mildly recommend it!!

Summary: This movie is a blast!

I saw this at the Tribeca Film Festival and it was great fun. Bloody, funny, and smart. An intellectual twist on the "secluded retreat" idea - a group gathers at a hotel to do a weekend course about the meaning of their lives. And of course, they're overrun by zombies.

I especially love the way it weaves between existential exploration and hilarious gore-fest. It works on so many different levels - while your first reaction to it may be mostly visceral, the more you think about it the more you notice how clever the jokes are, how interesting the characters are, and how joyfully it plays with film conventions.

This is a rare and unusual film to come out of the Czech Republic. If you get a chance to see it, I highly recommend that you do!

Summary: Awesome Movie! Great up and coming director!

I just saw this movie at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York and it was awesome! I had a terrific time discussing this movie with the director, whom I think has an excellant sense of humor and definitely has his fingers on the pulse of comedy / horror films. I thought the movie was well shot, particularly with the budgetary limitations he encountered. The actors were well laid out and had just enough background to make me care about what happened to them. The movie included some film/story tricks I haven't seen used so effectively before (such as the slow-motion close ups and the rewind effect at the end of the film - hope I didn't spoil it for anyone!).

All in all, a great film that should be watched by anyone and everyone who even vaguely likes comedy/horror. A true classic that will certainly go down in history with other comedy/horror greats, such as Evil Dead 2. 5 stars out of 5!
