Movie Review: “SLAUGHTERHOUSE RULEZ” needed the Wright stuff - 05-17


Don’t be fooled by the presences of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in the cast of SLAUGHTERHOUSE RULEZ; the only reason this film will be “compared to SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ,” in the words of the publicity, is due to their roles in it, not because it has anywhere close to the wit and laughs of the Cornetto Trilogy. Though Pegg and Frost were also executive producers, the movie seriously could have used Pegg and his Cornetto partner Edgar Wright on scripting duties, and perhaps Wright at the helm as well.
