Yoga Hosers (2016)

Rating: 8.5/10

Two high school girls working at a Canadian convenience store called “Eh-2-Zed” discover that they’re working on top of a secret nazi bunker filled with tiny Hitler-sausages. They have to stop them before their charged with murder for the evil sausages’ victims. Teaming up with eccentric detective Guy Lapointe (Johnny Depp) these young Canadian girls are going to try to stop this army of “Bratzis” (Bratwurst-Nazis).

Something I may have forgotten to mention in my review of Tusk was that Johnny Depp as Guy Lapointe basically comes in the last 40 minutes and steals the show, but his part is a small one in the last movie and he gets a much bigger role in this one. He’s hilarious as the French investigator and does a great job of keeping things silly. It’s a pretty silly movie overall that’s definitely more fun than it is deep or memorable, but as a horror-comedy that almost feels more like a parody, this had a lot of laughs that made it worth the watch, even if it was more style than actual substance.

Also, I want to applaud our two leading ladies, Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp. Though their fathers are more famous I think they do such a great job in this film that I’m disappointed they aren’t in more films together (yet). They hold this film together as best friends doing what they can in a bad situation and provide a lot of comedy while doing so.

Oh, and I forgot to mention Ralph Garman as the evil Nazi living under the convenience store is hilarious. He makes a very long-winded expositional scene what could be the most enjoyable part of the whole film. He also gets to show off his impressions quite a bit.

SCORING:

+6.5: A very enjoyable B-horror movie. Though B-horror movies made on purpose tend to try to hard or just be too weird, or just fail as films, this one is held up with it’s good dialogue, characters, and just being flat-out fun. Not for everyone (as what film is?) but if you like the humor of Kevin Smith or campy horror movies, this is recommended

+2: considering this is just a campy horror film, the acting throughout the flick is very good, also I hope that Johnny Depp can return as Guy Lapointe at least one more time
