Pitch black comedy about a boyfriend and girlfriend that go on holiday (British) and kind of sort of become killing spree multiple murderers. This really surprised me. I liked it a great deal. I missed Kill List but only thought Down Terrace was OK. This was really good. Hilarious, captivating, surprising... everything you'd want in a movie like this. Really fun stuff.

Oh, this was the first secret screening of the fest. They also showed it in two theaters so more people could see. I like both trends of having fewer secret screenings and making them more accessible. A lot of the logistics and mechanics of the fest (except for the usual bevy of small things and the goddamn PA seating announcement lobby lining up nonsense) were better this year. They're baby steps but I feel like each year gets a little better in terms of no headaches or major pains in the ass.
