I had to leave straight after this film so didnt see the Q+A. I left thinking I had seen a great modern horror film - not a reinvention or a new genre, just a well constructed horror film. I think some other have already said it but it put me in mind of a Clive barker idea. There were two quite magn...

Great fun, made with love and knowledge. A really great start to the day.

Did anyone else notice the brilliant but subtle russian joke after the guys grabbed tools from the shed to fight the zombies?

A complete and utter disgrace. Terrible on every level, the direction, the acting the .....why bother. There were numerous films in the discovery screen that could have been shown instead of this garbage. Struck me as a film made as a business venture rather than out of a love for movies. A film mad...

Good fun, B movie schlock but perfect for a late night movie.

Reasonably well made, but ultimately derivative and for me did not have anything to make it stand out from the other 84 million slasher movies of the last 20 years.

Thought this was a well made film with an interesting idea. I am trying not to overanalysis it but it seems that that is impossible to avoid. I think the difficulty is in trying to establish when the cycle begins but after much thought I am not sure you can identify exactly when it began. The whole ...

Wasnt this just a retread of jacobs ladder?

Not a good film, felt like the director was just looking to find something to wrap his torture porn up in, but instead of something original he took the premise of another movie.

I am totally with you on this Streetrw. Perhaps the forum should promote an announcement everytime some is spotted using a mobile - perhaps we could shame this morons into stopping. How about everytime someone is spotted using a mobile whoever spots him or her shouts 'MOBILE W**KER' at them. The org...

for me the most shocking scene ever in a film is the kerb scene in American History X and you dont even see it.

Wholeheartedly agree with baby jane, it is a brave and important film and thats why it provokes such extreme responses. And Grindhouse, you made a point that should have been obvious to me but didnt click until I read your post. It is a beautiful film. I hope it does get a UK release uncut. People s...

Most important film of the weekend?

I thought I would wait a couple of days before posting to see if martyrs did generate the expected divided opinions. I think it was the most important film of the weekend because it did what all truly great cinema does, it provokes discussion and divides opinion. If you check the forum you will see ...
