Re: The Woman

It's just the way I watched it, I compared to a lot of family roles I've seen within my own family, the alpha male who goes to work and comes home expecting tea on the table with the woman staying at home tending to the house and raising the children. That's a very simple way of looking at it though...

Re: Urban Explorers

I found this to be quite terrible, the lack of subtitles didn't bother me it was the way it ripped off Frontiers/Creep all in one movie.

Re: The Innkeepers

I really do love Ti Wests films and this was just excellent, it had some great character building and I'm even willing to let go of the fact that the "Ghost" looked like something out of Goosebumps. (Not that there's anything wrong with Goosebumps!)

Re: A Night In The Woods

The character build up was working perfectly but then became ruined with the obvious amount of Blair Witch style scares and visuals. Sad really.

Re: Troll Hunter

I love my monster movies and I loved this beyond thought possible, truly funny and witty in places with some great sights to behold.

Re: Fright Night - 3D

The 3D in this film is pointless and a let down at the same time, the movie itself was a good bit of fun. It doesn't add anything to the Original movie nor does it take anything away from it either.

Re: Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark

Good opening movie, the atmosphere was dripping with tension in some places. A little let down by the performance of Guy Pearce and the CG Creatures, though they still looked good. The original is much more creepy in my opinion.

Re: Sennentuntschi

A surpsie hit for me, some excellent editing in this movie with an interesting mixed premise to confuse the audience. Excellent movie.

Re: Kill List

This movie was a HUGE let down for me, the first two thirds of the movie are brilliant and do a good job of getting you to sympathize and like the characters but the third act ruins it. Such a shame.

Re: Trailer Trash!

I preffered these over the mind numbing John Carpenter inspired shorts, at least these where funny.

Re: The Divide

I found this to be truely engaging throughout, mostly. I'll have to forget about the oddness of the bald guy in the dress and the weak jealous french man. A lot of people around me seemed to be disgruntled when the lead woman left Biehns character and her partner. Why? Shes just witness the brutal r...

Re: Detention

I'm not sure why this movie was at the festival, it just didn't fit at all. While I found the premise at the start to be engaging and somewhat funny the third act was totally stupid and pointless.

Re: The Woman

One of my personal favourites of the festival, a good portrayel of the domestication of women and an ending that perfectly fits. Brilliant.

Worst film of the festival for me, nothing short of stupid and downright trash.

Re: Chillerama

As much as I LOVE Joes and Adams enthusiasm for horror and the festival I found this movie abysmal, the comedy felt so forced and silly.
