TORTURE PORN LABEL UNJUSTIFIED

The sheer clinical, detached and emotion-free way that Anna is tortured is for me is much worse than torture where someone takes pleasure from the act. From my perspective taking pleasure from the act recognises that its a living, breathing human being tortured wheras the clinical approach reduces ...

Re: Most important film of the weekend?

[quote="steve806"] I am uncomfortable that some have considered it torture Prawn. I believe it has an clear distinction from that sub genre in that in martyrs nobody takes any pleasure from the torture, the torture is a function of an experiment and the torturers give no hint of emotion, positive or...

Re: SHORT FILM PLAGIARISM AND LOSING THE WILL TO LIVE !!

[/quote] I said exactly the same thing to a friend. I remembered 'Panic' while watching the short and thought it was indeed a complete rip off! I was 8 in 1978 when 'Panic' was the pre feature short before I can't remember what film. http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0844746/[/quote] Glad someone else noti...

MIRROR PERVERTS

Looking back on my life, I have tried to remember when I consciously went out to buy a mirror. I did buy one once in a pound shop in Hounslow as I needed one, but didn't give a hoot about what it looked like as the purchase was born out of necessity rather than a serious furnishing purchase. I have ...

ONE OF THE BEST

One of my favourites of the whole festival. This film was so well put together, acted and filmed. My attention was held from start to finish and the occasional injection of humour was welcomed in contrast to quite a depressing story. I felt genuinely afraid for for Mi Jin Kim and her daughter. The s...

NEEDED A BETTER SCRIPT

This film had a great story line and the South East London council estate setting was a brilliant choice for a horror film. It was good, but for some reason I could imagine it as a 3 part TV series more than a movie. It didn't quite blow me away. I think the script was the weak link to be honest and...

TWISTED SISTER, BROTHER, MUM AND DAD

Had a good feeling about this film when considering which ones to see before buying my tickets and I am really glad I went with my instincts. One of the best films of the festival. Very twisted, brutal, grim and gorey with excellent performances. Only one small gripe is the main characters Polish ac...

NORMA FOR FIRST FEMALE/ZOMBIE US PRESIDENT !!

NORMA FOR US PRESIDENT !! This was everything I was expecting. Bags of fun, humour, gore, craziness and the characters were great. The film was well done and the director understood the spirit of this kind of horror movie totally. Norma kicks arse or ASS as she would say in her southern accent. This...

SHORT FILM PLAGIARISM AND LOSING THE WILL TO LIVE !!

Yes, I was so bored, I did a remarkable impression of Bagpuss on more than several occassions during "The Broken". I tried so hard to stay interested, but it just wasn't happening. The story was poorly put together, the script was dull, the acting was lame, it terms of cinematography it was bland, t...

OUTSTANDING

Martyrs for me along with The Chaser were the two best films at FrightFest this year for me. Although Martyrs is difficult to watch, I didn't feel that the violence and brutality wasn't necessary to instill in the viewer the repulsion that you feel for the people who are guilty of these terrible act...
