Plot Summary: An over-achieving police officer is exiled by his employers to a seemingly crime-free village, but soon suspects a vast conspiracy of violent elitism beneath the surface.
Note: Jimmy returns to discuss this sometimes-awkward but highly entertaining send-up of the action and slasher genres. We talk about the misuse of a red herring, themes of arrested development throughout Edgar Wright's work and overshadowing a narrative with excessive foreshadowing.
