Rapture-Palooza (2013) Review

Rapture-Palooza (2013) may very well be the worst movie of 2013. I recently saw this horror film on Netflix and thought what the heck, let’s check it out. There are many great comedians making guest appearances in the horror comedy, so I kept waiting for the redeeming moment of the film. After half way through the movie, I thought "I already saw half of the movie, the ending must be the spectacular part."

The film has so much cursing and extremely vulgar language that I thought they were trying too hard to make the film over the top. Anna Kendrick plays Lindsey Lewis while Craig Robinson plays The Beast. Lindsey gets duped into dating The Beast in a ploy to kill The Beast. He commences to drop hint after hint about wanting to get Lindsey in the sack; he even tries to persuade her to have a quickie in the bushes.

I love horror comedies and enjoy the silly over the top jokes that they come with, but this film sucks. Maybe good for a late night horror comedy on Netflix when you do not have anything else to watch.
