Empire Online has premiered the first ten minutes of Jake West's battle-of-the-sexes horror/comedy, DOGHOUSE. I've been waiting with breath that is baited for the film for well over a year, so does it live up to my expectations? Well, West's first film, Evil Aliens, was a zany low-budget gore fest and, while Doghouse has a similar vibe and will no doubt deliver in the violence department, it's definitely a more soberly made film.

The film starts with the introduction of each character as they leave their bitchy significant others and head out for a blokes only road trip. The first couple of scene start out a little shaky but the film is quick to find its rhythm and left me wanting to see more by the end.

Danny is handling his divorce badly. He’s depressed. Gone to pieces. But his mates aren’t giving up on him. Struggling with their own mid-life troubles, they drag him off for a boy’s weekend in the country... which goes horribly twisted when they find themselves holidaying in a village overrun by psychotic, homicidal women.

Doghouse opens in UK cinemas June 12. With any luck we'll get one of our amazing correspondences there to give us a full review. Until then you can watch the first ten minutes here.
