Can you believe this is the 4th year of 31 Days of Halloween? This year I am taking the reins with some help from Susan Harris. Things might look a little different but I guarantee one thing - Lots of "different" Halloween options!
Day 12 - Boys From County Hell (2020)
Susan Says -
I stumbled upon this movie when I was doing research for Own The Night, because I was looking at Irish vampire lore and to be fair, it looked hilarious. I'm planning on watching it once I have a few hours to spare cause I can justify it as research.
The movie centers around a crew of hardy road workers, led by a bickering father and son, must survive the night when they accidentally awaken an ancient Irish vampire.
I'm not sure that the legend of The Abhartach was ever meant to be used in such a silly way...but there ya go...
This one is defo a must watch!

So as I was watching the trailer Greg heard and then we decided to watch it. I will say the comedy in it is very dark and it is SUPER Irish - there were times I really needed the subtitles and I lived with Susan and never had an issue lol. (I will also say there are times when the subtitles are just totally wrong and quite obviously added by an American but I was able to figure it out).
This almost has the feel of the older movies like American Werewolf in London. Obviously not a high budget production with use being made of whatever they had around them, but it worked! The father and son dynamic was hilarious - there is one line, which I won't spoil for you, that had me laughing ridiculously because it was just SO perfect, but so not what you would ever get in a normal horror movie.
If you enjoy horror movies like Shaun of the Dead, then this is one for you!
