Laugier needs another idea than just taking a couple of actresses and punching them in the head for 9 minutes
How about taking a couple of actresses and punching them in the head for 10 minutes?
should have read 90 minutes obviously!

Re: Anna and the Apocalypse

a bit of a curate's egg. The zombie stuff was actually pretty ordinary and i could feel some strain to keep away from Shaun of the dead. Imean a film about getting a group of disparate slackers back to their loved ones during an zombie apocalypse has been done a zillion times hasn't it? Overall they...

Re: He's Out There

Very dull and predictable. Why do serial killers always stand still, menacingly in middle distance? Couldn't they wave or do a little dance?

Re: Incident in a Ghostland

Could have done with less hysterical treatment. The cartoon serial killers were stupid. all the cliches present and correct.She drops the typewriter on his head and obviously fails to finish him off etc ad nauseum.

Re: One Cut of the Dead

I saw the additional screening and thought it was absolutely brilliant. You need to stick with it through the 1st act. Immensely clever and finally heart warming

This was very weak. Straggly haired women running up and down the same corridor shrieking

Re: Strong Year?

Far too many weak, derivative slashers in main screen. He's out ther, fell asleep in that one. They need more non-american or brit films given bigger chances. one Cut of the Dead saved it for me, an absolute gem. Was it in the small screens just to save us from subtitles?

Re: What happen to the hygiene guy?

I thought that was a bit unforgivable. i'm a teacher and have dealt with this stuff. You don't call out the smelly, neglected student in front of the whole school for fucks sake! its a tricky one but needs talking to quietly. The poor guy must have been absolutely traumatised!

Re: Replace

I thought this was ridiculous but entertaining. The make up effects were weak letting it down a bit. it just looked like porridge spread on the skin. unfortunately BC was a bit hammy

Re: The Bar

I loved this. Another one-set and mobile phone film, the theme of this FF. It got lost in the sewers slighly but overall very smart.

Re: Victor Crowley

You need a FF audience with a charitable nature for this stuff. I enjoyed it but i can't imagine watching in any other circumstances. The broad, jock humour misses quite frequently. Adam's way with comedy dialogue and pace has been improved by his lame sitcom experience. another one-set movie which ...

Re: Devil's Gate

I liked this. It was a bit cliched but there aren't enough Monster movies at FF. I thought it had an H P Lovecraft vibe. Color out of space or Dunwich Horror are both backwoods creature stories
