Cannibals and Carpet Fitters – UK, 2017

‘Never work on an empty stomach’

Cannibals and Carpet Fitters is a 2017 British comedy horror film directed by James Bushe (shorts: Predator: Dark Ages; Secrets of the Dark House) from a screenplay by Richard Lee O’Donnell. The latter stars, alongside Darren Sean Enright and Zara Phythian star.

The feature film is based upon James Bushe’s 2014 short film of the same name.

A group of carpet fitters is sent on a job to an old country house in the middle of nowhere. However, they soon discover it’s a trap set up by the savage, cannibalistic family, The Hannings. The carpet fitters are forced to fight for their lives or risk ending up being evening dinner…


“The real triumph here though is that despite a short running time (just over 80 minutes) the carpet fitters are given enough to flesh them out to make you care about them when they’re in peril. There’s some very entertaining, gory and action-packed set pieces…” Paul Downey, Bloody Flicks

Cannibals and Carpet-Fitters is a great ensemble horror comedy with plenty of shocks, ample and deliciously gross-out gore effects and a good (not perfect) sense of comic timing. Regardless of a few minor reservations – it’s a very good time with no “pursed lips” to be found at the film’s conclusion.” Michael Klug, Horrorfreak News
