Excerpt: "...After the screening, Hill asked the packed crowd at the Hollywood to name their favorite kill of the film, eliciting an array of responses. The audience simply couldn’t decide on which of the part gruesome/part comical demises it preferred. The film is at once a loving tribute and a biting critique. The actors were clearly older than the characters they portrayed and the practicality of murder was often sacrificed for creativity.
