Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? 

Lock, Stock actor Jason Flemyng makes his directorial debut with cheap and cheerful horror comedy Eat Locals, but he probably won’t be giving up the day job just yet. Indeed, scares and laughs are in fairly short supply as a coven of vampires (including Freema Ageyman and Charlie Cox) come under siege from a special-forces squad (led by Robert Portal’s cynical officer and Mackenzie Crook’s pious chaplain) while holed up in a remote farmhouse. Still, Flemyng does treat us to the sight of Annette Crosbie as a grandmotherly vampire who goes into spirited action clutching a Zimmer frame and a submachine gun.

Certificate 15. Runtime 90 mins. Director Jason Flemyng

Eat Locals available on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital from Spirit Entertainment.
