MURDER PARTY [2007]

Director Jeremy Saulnier's debut Murder Party is an over-the-top comedy that is just a taste of the disturbingly violent films he would thrust upon us.
An awkward loner finds a Halloween party invitation on the sidewalk and decides to attend the mysterious soiree, foolishly unaware of the horrors that lie before him.
The movie has a difficult time smoothly bouncing back & forth between comedy and violence but still manages to make both effective.  It offers enough surprises and shocks to please the twisted movie-goer searching for something well off the beaten path.  It might take it's time picking up steam but once it does it turns into a wildly funny bloodbath that has a surprising amount of tension.
