NOTE:  I have no qualms about the seriousness of the holocaust and no prejudice against gender identity or obesity.  Be warned that some people may find the dark humour in this film a little over the top.

Well, my friends.  It appears we have come across a little gem here. A half-vampire, half-human, completely sarcastic, segway-riding, and definitely overweight nazi killer is on a mission.  To kill nazis, of course.

All it took was the opening scene of a 300lb woman epically wielding samurai swords through the air, and I was sold.  The film embraces it's b-movie status and puts a god damn ring on it.  The comedic creativity is hilarious, with concentration camps equipped with "clap-on/clap-off" lights, along with a homosexual nazi resistance member known by the name "Vag" (German play on words here, I assume), but who everyone fondly refers to as "Vagisal".  Even  the onslaught of cliche "fat jokes" don't put a damper on this one.

The story-line is a little confusing, mainly due to really weird dream sequences involving heart-to-hearts with Hitler, but if you watch it through to the end it generally makes enough sense.  There are also a few random scenes here and there that are completely irrelevant to EVERYTHING, but it works (somehow).  Luckily, it's not much of a thinker.

I was actually quite impressed with some of the special effects despite the b-movie factor.  There is not much in the gore department, just some vivisecting and heart stabbing.  It suffices, though.  The "beatings" are performed in such a manner that the movie actually mocks itself, showing different angles of an individual supposedly getting his head smashed into a wall wherein he is simply "headbanging air", for lack of a better term.

This is a goofy horror movie and the humor absolutely keeps it going and makes it so fantastic.  The acting is great (probably due to skill-level=genre) and the cast pulled it off wonderfully.  Can you tell I'm a fan?  Of course, these types of goofy movies are not for everyone.  I myself am very wary of such a genre and tend to avoid the stupid looking spoof horror films.  Perhaps this is just a diamond in the rough, who knows.  It's fucking awesome though.

Grade:A fucking PLUS

Moral of the Story: Obese vampiric women are hilarious.
