Downton Abbey meets The Evil Dead in a fabulously funny and delightfully gruesome British romp set in a crumbling mansion in the 1930s.

I say now, what the Dickens is this? A tip-top comic horror pastiche, I’ll be bound! The awfully good debut by director Jack McHenry and co-writer Alice Sidgwick unfolds in a classic Old Dark House. Cravat-wearing toff Victor just bought the decrepit pile and has invited his chums for the weekend. Delightfully drawn archetypes in attendance include acid-tongued socialite Christine, dishy tennis player Teddy and his nervous new girlfriend Elizabeth. The thing is, you see, Victor’s new digs are supposedly haunted, and he thinks it’d be simply capital fun to hold a séance. What follows is wonderfully witty and bloody entertainment with a jolly good bolt of modern girl-power lightning, to be sure.

It looks great, the cast manage a perfect balance of period-apt woodenness and hints of deeper feeling, and there’s a charming period score from Ben Pearson.

Here Comes Hell is perhaps the most entertaining cinematic romp of the year so far, in any genre.
