Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch The Met choose to get rid of an over-efficient sargeant by assigning him to a quiet country town, where the inhabitants seem to die frequently in bloody accidents, and even when the florist dies of being stabbed in the throat with a pair of shears no-one does anything. But despite setbacks he keeps on the trail.
Content Much blood and gore as people are murdered, some sexual references and quite a bit of swearing.
A View It is fun trying to identify some of the famous faces, many disguised behind beards, but it is not a laugh out loud film. I would say “gentle” comedy if it was not for all the violence.
