Review: Oh, the meta-horror of 'Knights of Badassdom'

A monster flick set amid a medieval festival, "Knights of Badassdom" appears to pay homage to the Troma brand of comedic horror.

When stuck-up Beth (Margarita Levieva) dumps ne'er-do-well Joe (Ryan Kwanten), his roommates Hung (Peter Dinklage) and Eric (Steve Zahn) promptly pass him a bottle of whiskey and a bong to help nurse his heartbreak. He awakens in full armor at a campsite that medieval reenactors have descended upon for a cosplay extravaganza.

While chanting magical poppycock during a wizard ritual, Eric unwittingly summons a demon that takes the shape of Beth and snacks on the hearts of unsuspecting players.
