There may be spoilers the rest of the review

 

Verdict: Oh Dear God!

 

Story: Hans Crippleton Talk to the Han starts with Barnaby Hunt (Hankins) on the latest episode of Horror Hunts in search for the latest paranormal mystery. This week’s episode involved meeting Hans Crippleton (Ward) who is known as the judge of all things horror being a collector of the horror merchandise.

Hans lives with his family on a farm along with his redneck family and we watch how Barnaby interview Hans and his family about the origins with how they just live with zombies around them.  

Hans Crippleton Talk to the Han tries the hardest to be a mockumentary which works to a certain level but after that this story just comes off insulting to everyone involved. We get to see the family deal with their personal issues on camera in what really comes off uncomfortable. While I do understand this is meant to have a satirical side which is a type of comedy I do like, this just doesn’t reach the levels required to reach the funny levels.

 

Actor Review

 

Kevon Ward: Hans Crippleton is the leader of the Crippleton family that has become famous leaving his roots to struggle with the zombie infection, he becomes more selfish without worrying about his family. Kevon gives us a very annoying performance in this role with a much disappointing character.

Andy Hankins: Barnaby Hunt is the host of the Horror Hunt who is trying to figure out the curse behind the Crippleton family. Andy does what he can with the performance without really excelling.

Heath C Heine: Cousin Bumpkin is a member of the family that comes off less intelligent but also envious of Hans success. Heath is the funniest of the character involved in the film.

Irene Leonard: MaMa Crippleton is your typical redneck mother bigger than the rest of the family but the boss of the household. Irene does a basic job in this role.
