Reviews Review: ‘Cannibals and Carpet Fitters’ is a Lighthearted But Grizzly British Horror Comedy Published 3 months ago on February 12, 2019 By Gareth Paterson Share Tweet Cannibals and Carpet Fitters is a lighthearted but grizzly British horror comedy that’s not for the squeamish. It opens with a found footage sequence featuring Alex Zane in an extended cameo. He and his girlfriend are out camping when they lose their bearings and are attacked by a family of cannibals. Sometime later, employees of a carpet fitting company are sent to the family’s isolated rural house, unaware that they are next on the menu. The bumbling but likeable team must escape while armed only with staple guns and their wits. The focused and sharp script is peppered with character based comedy and well constructed death scenes. Interactions between the unfortunate carpet fitters feel very real and organic. The protagonists seem like everyday, relatable people which contrasts well with the cartoonish and over the top cannibals. The impressive, realistic looking gore effects are expertly done, especially when compared to other low budget horror films. Heads are split open, necks are impaled and brains are splattered all in a way that looks seamless. There is a gleefully gross celebration of dismemberment that is sure to make viewers both laugh and squirm. A lot of attention to detail clearly went into the practical effects. For instance, we see slit throats all the time in horror but in this film you get a small glimpse of layers of grisly yellow fat underneath the bleeding skin flap. Much of the violence is complemented by a great, exaggerated sound design that emphasises the many stabs, punches and bone crunches. This movie is a lot of fun and is worth seeing if you’re into new British horror. Just don’t watch it before dinner!
