Cannibal Flesh Riot (2007, USA) B&W-33m. n/r D: Gris Grimly. Starring David Backus, Vince Buckley, Bud Campbell, Erik Campbell, Shanna Fleischeiker. Horror comedy short about two ghouls who are on their way to a graveyard where they want to exhume (and possibly devour) a recently deceased billionaire. A few too many wisecracks in the lengthy dialogues, but film is surprisingly well-made and atmospheric. Grimly shows an eye for detail and makes great use of stop-motion elements. Black-and-white cinematography suggesting worn-out film material helps immensely. Recommended to horror fans.
