For a killer, getting rid of the corpse is a necessary part of the experience, and the greatest risk of discovery. But on Halloween, corpses would be par for the course, right? Such is the idea behind The Body, directed by friend of Frightfest and really very tall Paul Davis (Him Indoors, Beware the Moon).
Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones) is the murderer (referred to in the credits as The Man) and anchors some very dark but very very funny comedy that is at times worryingly believeable. It feels like Paul Davis and co-writer Paul Fischer are secretly members of the League of Gentlemen, and it’s probably inevitable that at some point it will be cross-credited on video sites as a LoG sketch. Mind you, the League would be proud of the association to something as punchily hilarious as this! ****
