The latest and most outrageous in a wave of UK comic horror films like Shaun Of The Dead, Doghouse is a raucous, balls-out funny spin on male insecurity over their own masculinity and vengeful women. A group of guys (including Danny Dyer of The Football Factory and Severance and Stephen Graham of Snatch and Public Enemies) head off for a boys weekend to buck up a friend still depressed over a painful divorce. Unfortunately, they end up in an isolated town infected with a bio-weapon that has turned all the women into the man-hating monsters the lads always suspected women were at heart. The guys spend less time bonding and a lot more time fleeing from hairdressers, nurses, schoolgirls and other iconic female figures all looking to snip away with scissors and swords and literally do what the guys have been fearing for years. Deftly satirical, witty and just bloody good fun, Doghouse is the most original battle of the sexes in years.

The film starts out as a bit of male wish fulfillment. To support a friend going through a divorce, a group of guys decides to take a "boys only" vacation. The joke is that they decide to go to a remote town where women reportedly outnumber men four to one. Even though the logic of this escapade is a bit sketchy, the guys are eager to take a break from their everyday lives (it helps that all their introductions present cloying spouses and unpleasant situations). So maybe this vision of a town with randy and willing ladies seems perfectly reasonable. Traveling via bus (in scenes eerily reminiscent of "Severance"--check it out as well), the guys eventually discover things all but deserted--until they start finding body parts and bloody remnants. But that's not all--the women have been turned into ravenous zombies!
A military/government experiment has gone awry and the resultant virus affects only the fairer sex.Read more ›
Instead regardless if you knew these cannibal women you'd be filled with horror and not take this lightly. But this does have the actors act that way to a degree which lets us all know that this is a comedy to a degree. Still it's a fast moving flick and if you don't take it seriously you'll have fun watching it.Read more ›
Unfortunately, it is a poor substitute for "Shaun of the Dead," or "Cockneys vs Zombies."
Here is one of the most hilarious Zombie spoofs to come digging it's way out of the grave! 2009's, "Doghouse" is an absolutely original take on the way over used & abused Zombie sub-genre.
A group of friends take off for a boys weekend of boozing, bonding, babe hunting, & all out good ole fashioned debauchery, as their trying to cheer up a buddy who has just went through divorce. They hire a mini bus with a hot female driver, & off they go into the English countryside to a village where another friend lives.
Right off the bat you know this is going to be a funny affair, as one wife or girlfriend gives each of the guys the third degree for taking off together for a weekend of fun. Yes, these guys are hen pecked, & ready to fly the roost. Little do they know that the hens in the village are ready to peck them to death, as their all Zombies looking for that special guy which just happens to be any guy who crosses their path. Yes, these hens have sharp teeth & claws, & rooster is on the menu!
What ensues is mass black comedy hilarity as our group of roosters try to get away with all their feathers still intact. The female Zombie make up is first rate & diverse! We have a hooker Zombie, a Grandmother Zombie, a barmaid Zombie, a beautician Zombie, a young bride Zombie, a teenage girl Zombie, a woman butcher Zombie, & maybe the most hilarious of all, a hugely obese housewife Zombie dressed in a huge tent of a bathrobe & hair curlers that loves candles on her cake made of men's fingers. Instead of having her cake & eating it to, she just likes to munch on a finger or two, or three, or four...
Yes, it is revenge of the hens, as the roosters are crowing for help & trying to fly away with clipped wings!Read more ›
