The producers of this celluloid calls this a horror movie.It's really more like a satirical mockery of the fact that neither political side of voters and supporters in real life are on the winning team.The fact that the majority of political slaves in real life are consciously supporting the Covid-19 Hoax,is really the only receipt you need for my comment to make sense.

Complete and utter fantasy, but enjoyable if you can stomach the gore and the ham-handed social commentary. There's ALOT of suspension of disbelief here, so much so, that I often found myself saying, "come on!!!" out loud. If you watch it, because you heard that this is the story of a "deplorable" sticking it to liberal elites, then sorry to disappoint, but it is not that. Worth the watch for Betty Gilpin alone: one of the best actors currently working. If you like her, watch "Glow" on Netflix.

This was a very good move that had some good twists and turns. For us it was one of the best we have seen recently. Watch it you will enjoy it too.

Ultimate ruthless elitists vs likeable deplorables.

Cheeky humor, abundant gore and biting political satire...this movie has it all. Betty Gilpin steals the show!

Very violent and bloody. Very entertaining.

This movie was much better than expected. I missed reading Animal Farm in school but feel I must read it now.

It was good for some laughs, but they didn't quite get the Animal Farm references. Anyways, at the time this movie came out I don't know how many people could've foreseen how many privileged white leftists would be running around trashing minority communities and claiming to make the world a better place.

It's alright. I found it mildly funny. The social commentary aspect seemed pretty fair, though not terribly profound.

Much more enjoyable than expected.

The beginning of it is funny enough, but it is the ensuing few scenes which are riotously HILARIOUS and make it worth watching- I literally laughed until I cried.

Toward the middle of the film, there is a wide gap where the laugh-out-loud moments are slowed and further and further apart, but still bring a smile or giggle here and there. The ending while good, is overshadowed by a preceding fight scene that is one for the books. It was really, really well done.

The best part of the entire movie though, and what makes it stand out, is that if a person watching has more than two brain cells, the dialogue is spot-on close-to-perfect in mocking BOTH SIDES of the political divide. And here, is what I think people are missing: NEITHER side is depicted as being 'better' than the other. Or worse. It has fun at the expense of everyone and it doesn't do it in any overtly mean way, but in a way where we can nod and nod and nod and laugh ... at ourselves ... no matter who we are or where we stand.

Lastly, a horror film - it is not. Somewhat gory, yes. A "horror" film? no.

Only 6 quotes in IMDb but with the Jack Rabbit story in full. This site has extensive quotes from the film and includes both the JackRabbit and Snowball stories.

However, neither includes this between the two femme fatales in the middle of a life and death fight:

Athena (Swank): One second. No more glass.
Nor this reference to bigots:

Woman: Deplorables.
Man: It's... charged.
Athena (Swank): Well, I initially typed fucking rednecks, but then I decided that wasn't specific...
Man: Hey, come on.
Athena (Swank): What? What would you prefer I call them, Paul? Gun-clutching homophobes?
Man: Hey, stop, please.
Athena (Swank): Academically challenged racists?
Man: Hey. Hey.
Athena (Swank): What about tooth-deprived bigots?
