And the most ludicrous bit (other than Jules' hilarious shagging confession) was where Mel says 'He's been protecting us all night'. Like when he rammed head first and full speed into the car that Jules was in when she tried to escape you mean ? And he was apparently prepared to let his pretend-acc...

I always skip the late-nighters but I've seen the film before and I'd have been happy if it had been on earlier in the day!

(For anyone trying to find it on DVD, it's called Escape 2000 on region 1 and has also been available as Blood Camp Thatcher)

OK, fair enough... just some dedicated existing fans then. I'll leave 'em to it.

What was the recent film Alan thought it resembled?
Five Across The Eyes, or Hush maybe.
Yeah, I could only think of Hush (except that was excellent, big difference!). Only because of the "white slavery" aspect... but I guess that's enough.

Haven't seen Five Across The Eyes.

Shuttle

OK, no-one's started a thread for this one, so I suppose it ought to have one. For what it's worth, I thought the basic idea of a late-night airport shuttlebus driver with evil intentions had some potential. But the plot was such a completely illogical mess it really tried my patience.... What was t...

It had some interesting images, but what a complete shambles.

As my brother pointed out, everyone in the fim - especially Coffin Joe - talked like Mr Noisy. "I WOULD LIKE A PIECE OF MEAT. AND A WOMAN TO CONTINUE MY BLOOD."

I was expecting the worst, not being a fan of Corden and Horne, but it wasn't bad at all. Not in any way a "horror movie", but I don't think that's the audience they were going for - unlike Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, who seem to genuinely appreciate the horror genre. But as a comedy, it did the jo...

It was all made worse in my opinion by the director's attempt to make it into a cult movie. Cult films happen over time from years of word of mouth and to see an attempt to 'force' it straight away into this status was a bit lame I think. Yeah, that annoyed me and made me skip the Q&A. You can't te...

Great stuff, I'll be buying it on DVD to use as a checklist for films I want to see.

I already have a few like Long Weekend, Turkey Shoot, Thirst and Patrick (plus Picnic At Hanging Rock which doesn't deserve the gentle ribbing they gave it!).

Unless the theatrical version has been somewhat trimmed from the one we saw? He did say it wasn't really finished.

Felt like nothing had happened after an hour had passed That's because nothing had happened after an hour had passed! I know, because I was asleep for most of that hour and apparently I didn't miss a thing. Unless there were a whole load of extra rednecks, hippies and/or pigs who appeared during th...

Fair enough - I find Who Can Kill a Child? quite powerful and thought-provoking, whereas The Children was really just a bloody good laugh. Like 'em both though.

It was interesting reading the interview in the little programme for the day - most of the people involved in the film weren't particularly horror fans, and it showed. They thought they were being original but it was all very predictable and boring, bloody awful acting too. Thank God it was only abo...

I got REALLY fed up of the screaming children and happy families. I did too, in fact I found the first half hour or so pretty hard work - didn't like any of the characters and I thought they all looked/acted irritatingly "American" despite it being a British film. Plus, I loathed wΔz so my expectat...

I've always loved the film - and I have seen it on the big screen before, so I must be older than Neil Marshall.... But I do think it's starting to show its age - it seems a bit plodding and the fight scenes don't have much "impact" compared with modern actioners. But I don't normally find that an i...
