What I liked

The cast has incredible energy, plays multiple parts and are talented, baby. The story takes turns that completely caught be off guard and amused the hell out of me. So if you see some hell in the theater, that’s mine and please return it.

And I like the spattering blood. But who doesn’t?

What I didn't like

Occasionally the sound effects drown out the dialog, and the dialog is too funny to miss.

My overall impression

Shitty Awful Everything is exactly not that. It is an hour that will have you laughing, even as you’re drenched in blood. Or at least moistened by blood. It is, well, what is it exactly? Imagine a play, Orpheus and Eurydices performed in the 1920’s, cast with the Marx Brothers and other vaudeville veterans heavily influenced by Monty Python, Tchaikovsky, Bunuel, Animaniacs, and directed by Sam Peckinpah during a weekend Meth bender. And did I mention blood? There is blood. Like The Wild Bunch, only funnier. I loved it.
