Horror-comedy is not an easy genre to get right. Shaun of the Dead was great, while Lesbian Vampire Killers was dire.

Infestation doesn't quite hit the heights of Shaun, but it has enough gasps, gore and gags to hold the interest, and in its lead, Christopher Marquette, an amiable loser who tries to lead a group of survivors across a giant-insect-strewn America. Wonderful support by Ray Twin Peaks Wise and nice little nods to horror forebears from The Mist to The Fly.
