Yes, you read that title correct. It’s a film about a killer coat. It’s pretty much exactly what you’d expect it to be, roughly half an hour of a coat killing people in elaborate ways. My wife bought this film from the Wales Comic Con last month and it took us a while but we got round to watching it. It’s ridiculous, over the top and a lot of fun.
The story is pretty much the title, there’s a killer coat on the loose. A group of friends see someone walking through the street and they’re wearing a coat, that one of them likes. The next morning he finds the coat in his room and one by one it kills and eats his friends.
The premise is silly and you know from the title alone whether you’re going to like this one or not. The coat kills people in various different ways. It lands on people, throws scissors, and even pushes someone’s batter covered hand into a deep fat fryer before eating the battered hand. It’s laugh out loud funny at points.
To be completely honest, I did start to zone out towards the end on this one. It is fun at the beginning, but even at 36 minutes, it’s a stretch to keep it up. I also spent a long time looking at the books and DVDs on their shelves to see what I could spot. They’re clearly a Farscape and Clive Barker fan.
Sadly, I don’t think this film is readily available. We got it at a convention and I’ve searched online to see if it’s available anywhere else, so I could buy it as a Christmas present, but couldn’t find it other than on YouTube. If you’re a fan of b-movies and silly horror then it’s worth checking out. It’s pretty fun.
