A highly enjoyable horror comedy and an original twist on the common slasher...
18 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Welcome to Willits isn't a perfect film, but most of its flaws come from clear budgetary constraints. The film itself is at times laugh out loud funny and can also be tense and very frightening. While it won't win any awards I found it to be one of the more entertaining horror films I've seen so far this year. If you like insane horror comedies like Tucker and Dale vs Evil or even stuff like Edgar Wright's Cornetto Trilogy give this one a look. It plays very much like a low budget version of those films.
