Original Review:

Dare you descend into the chilling netherworld of Garth Marenghi?

This demonic master of the horror novel threatens a maxi-terror journey through the darkest reaches of the soul.

The devilish Marenghi will surely play merry hell with your emotions. With the emphasis firmly on merry.

For this is a splendidly over-the-top spoof gorefest, getting plenty of laughs from hammy overacting, ridiculous plots and laboriously melodramatic lines.

Relentlessly piss-taking, but never cynical, it's a thoroughly enjoyable slice of inspired silliness.

Many of the laughs are as cheap as the props, but there's a keen observation behind every gag ­ with guffaws of laughter from the slightest change of facial expression or fractionally mistimed cue.

Do yourself a favour and get yourself a ticket to watch this Grin Reaper at work. You'll die laughing
