What I liked

There were some great character/directing/design choices that made the goofy tale amusing throughout.

What I didn't like

It was too long and so ended up dragging in places, with scenes that didn’t help anything—even with the jokes within. There were also some jokes that are either inside-jokes for Serial Killers or just don’t make sense to people who don’t know them and for a Fringe audience, those might want to be removed.

My overall impression

Goofy, funny, late-night absurdist parody of the fantasy genre. Quite a lot of fun.
