Kept me entertained but I preferred Orphan as it was darkly comic and nastier overall.

Bit disappointed this director has 'sold out' to Hollywood as I thought Antibodies was excellent and would have hoped for something similar and less mainstream from him.

Didn't do it for me so I left after an hour.

It didn't engage me from the start but that could have been the tiredness and the lateness of its start time.

Had seen this tons of times in my youth as it's one of the main 'behind the scenes' films which convinced me I wanted to become a make-up artist.

At this time of night though it didn't feel nostalgic and could have done without it to be honest.

Hated this, my worst of the festival - OK so I fell asleep during Zombie Women Of Satan and left an hour into Black but I really could not wait for this to end. I had completely forgotten who had directed it and I hated Autopsy last year. So that was a bad start for me made worse when the director s...

A throw back to the days of Fatal Attraction.

Quite enjoyed it but wanted it to be nastier. As it was it felt very mainstream.

Lead actor was great though.

Left me feeling underwhelmed as did last year's Book Of Blood.

Agree with others that it didn't feel realistic that anyone would continue participating in anything with such an obviously psychotic guy.

Loved it! Was expecting this to have some great special effects to show off the shock concept but didn't think for one minute it would also be a great thriller! The story kept me gripped as well as occasionally making me go 'Noooo!' Like someone else mentioned I too wanted the bandages to come off t...

Skipped this for Salvage as had seen it already and it didn't really float my boat.

Can see why it may play well as the first film of a FF day though.

Very disappointed with this one but that explains maybe why it got the late night slot.

Just found it quite boring and proved that lots of blood does not automatically mean a thrilling film.

Would still watch the short it was based on just to see if that worked better.

Really enjoyed this. Zombies felt truly nasty and managed to feel slightly different to those in other zombie films.

Felt like a thrill ride with some great sequences.

Thought the humour provided by the older guy really worked and didn't harm the intensity of the rest of it.

Firstly, welcome to our newly signed up forum friends - it's always great to hear your completely unbiased views on films. Thought this was well shot etc. and quite liked the mountain bike chase scenes. The villain at the beginning had a silly fake cockney accent (I think) and was impossible to unde...

One of my favourite horrors but like others would have preferred the doc after the film.

Sync problems very distracting but I'm sure everything was done to try and fix this.

Otherwise great to see it on such a big screen and in its new print.

Loved this. Well acted (the lead was superb), well written (albeit unoriginal) story and great and realistic fight sequences.

One of my top films of the fest.

Really enjoyed this. Great late night movie with good special effects and witty humour. Lead actor was great too.
