Zippy Rapture-Palooza Should Please Those Who Own Shaun of the Dead on Blu-ray

Apparently, heaven's clerks do indeed keep track of who goes to church on Sunday, because when the Rapture comes, Lindsey (Anna Kendrick) and her boyfriend, Ben (John Francis Daley), fail to rise. They take the news pretty well, but then the torments begin, which include skies that rain blood, crows that cuss you out as you pass by, and the emergence of the Antichrist (Craig Robinson), who wants to marry Lindsey and raise a family of little beasts.

Always amusing, if never screamingly funny (there are worse things), this zippy little flick from director Paul Middleditch and writer Chris Matheson (Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure) should please those who own Shaun of the Dead on Blu-ray, and can quote one-liners from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (the novel, not the film).

Those same folks will surely relish the ace ensemble of not-quite-famous (and proud of it) comic actors who portray the hapless fools whom Lindsey and Ben enlist in their plot to foil the Devil. These include John Michael Higgins, Rob Corddry, Thomas Lennon, and Ana Gasteyer, who's very funny as Lindsey's hypercritical mom. She makes it to Heaven, only to be thrown out a day later. Clerical error.
