R icky Gervais famously said that our comedians shouldn't follow up TV success by doing some naff British film that's "all over the sides of buses for two weeks and you're meant to think it's huge". Sadly, this is the move now being made by James Corden and Mathew Horne, two talented comics whose new TV sketch show incidentally takes a bit of a pop at the great man for his perceived pro-Hollywood snobbery. Corden and Horne have made a silly, broad sex comedy about a couple of blokes who go hiking in the forest, and do battle with, erm, lesbian vampires: St Trinian's meets The Descent in the pages of Nuts magazine. It's mostly pretty awful, but there are one or two crass laughs, largely provided by Paul McGann playing the potty-mouthed priest who is the only one who knows how to slay the Page-3 vampirettes.
Lesbian Vampire Killers — Film Review
Lesbian Vampire Killers : Reviews : Chortle : The UK Comedy Guide
But, while the homage to Hammer horror films of way back when is about as scary as a granny wielding a piece of Battenberg cake, it took me back to my childhood I was brought up on a staple diet of Carry On films and left me with what can only be described as a big measure of happy. The opening scene of the celluloid girl-on-girl bloodsucking was reminiscent of Carry On Screaming. And the rest of the film carried on in a similar vein with cheesy lines, titles and characters. But cheese can be good for you. In moderation. And so to the plot.
