With the caveat that I walked out after half an hour and didn't see it all, I'm still baffled by all the fuss about this
That's perfectly understandable. The third act is the key to happiness.

I didn't really understand the effects of the energy drink.
My interpretation was that it made them fixated on doing whatever they'd been into in the first place - so the users craved drugs, the dancers wanted to dance... and they'd go postal on anyone who got in the way of their thing.

Spoiler:
Did anyone else interpret the ending being that the girl dies, or do we just put the final shots down to being part of the fantasy?
Spoiler:
That really annoyed me. I didn't interpret it as her death, but I did think that it was horribly cheesy... (cf studio versions of Brazil & Blade Runner)

Climax

5/10 - arthouse nonsense. I didn't care who lived or died... and it's just as well because I couldn't tell who did - indeed, the arty upside down final shot didn't even tell me who the villain was. Maybe a script and some actors would have helped... but I'm pretty sure this plot was doomed to failur...

One Cut of the Dead

9/10 - horror themed comedy. The second act is slow, but it's there to set up the hilarious third act, so stick with it.

The Dark

7/10 - some interesting ideas here, but it didn't go in the direction I'd have preferred and too much was left unexplained (for a change). In particular... why was Josef going to Devil's Den in the first place?

Re: BRING BACK THE Q & As

From the Newsletter : We have decided that having a flood of people walking out in front of the visiting guests when they are being interviewed due to other films starting or limited scheduled breaks is really not a good look. This is understandable... but another thing causing that flood is that t...

The Field Guide to Evil

1/10 - Melonheads raised a chuckle, but everything else here was turgid and awful. If, in future years, you are offered a free DVD of this, slap your 'benefactor' soundly and cry, "Be off with you, charlatan!"

Open 24 Hours

5/10 - I might have liked this more if half the film wasn't just a delusion. Shrooms again.

Tigers Are Not Afraid

8/10 - liked it, but didn't love it... I didn't really connect with the characters. Pretty sure I'll be in the minority with this one, though - the room seemed smitten.

Re: He's Out There

Can anyone point me in the direction of whatever the two people who were up the front, before the film began - with the prosthetic Paul head and dog head - they were talking about something on kickstarter and something something. Anyone have any links for info?? https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...

Terrified

9/10 - Argentinian take on The Grudge. Hopefully any sequels will avoid the same trap, though... and hopefully we will see a continuation (and expansion / exploration of this mythos). Subs could use some polishing.
