This Week on Netflix: Knights of Badassdom

Live-action role players conjure up a demon from Hell by mistake and they must deal with the consequences. -IMDB

Knights of Badassdom was actually a movie I had been wanting to watch for a while prior to it being released on Netflix but never got around to it. Listen to these 4 main actors/actresses in the movie and you'll see why: Ryan Kwanten (Jason Stackhouse from True Blood), Steve Zahn (from Sahara), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) and Summer Glau (Arrow & Serenity). Not only did I want to watch this movie because of these actors but when was the last time you watched another movie about LARPing? Probably never! 

You follow Joe (Ryan Kwanten) on his reluctant journey through the Kigdom of Eliphaz as his roommates force him to tag along in their LARPing adventure. Eric (Steve Zahn) unknowingly releases a demon during a ritual they perform and they struggle to undue what had been done.

Things do get a little weird when the demon starts to make its presence and begins killing off those partaking in the event. However as I said before Summer Glau is in the movie so if LARPing actually has women like that involved... where do I sign up? 

All in all its a fun movie... should you watch it? Eh... you could probably skip over this one and live a full and happy life. I give it 1.5 Turtle Shells our of 5. The extra half a point was because it was about LARPing!
