Re: Inbred

I was thinking that my one sentence review would be enough, but this piece of shit film has provoked feelings of anger and resentment in me. I've seen bad films before. I've felt like I've wasted my time and my money, but I've never been angry after a film before like I was after this piece of shit....

Re: Rabies

This was a good film and I enjoyed it a lot.

I did like the spin put on the stalker/slasher idea and the play with the title, as talking to people who hadn't seen it, did indeed assume it was would be a flat out splatter fest.

Re: Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark

Yep, Tony Hatch's theme was in my head when Guy Pearce's 'boss' came round for dinner.

Creepy yet somewhat disappointing, I did like the 'under the covers' scene and again there was some good acting and Katie Holmes didn't irritate me half as much as I thought she would.

Re: Sennentuntschi

A nice dark fairy tale and very well acted by all.

Credit too to the director in the Q&A for getting in a Fritzl reference.

Re: The Theatre Bizarre

I can only concur all the previous posters.

Though I did 'enjoy' the one with all the sweets and cakes in it.

Re: The Wicker Tree

Wicker Carry On.

This film felt like Robin Askwith should have had the lead role in it.

Like the Star Wars prequels - when the highlight is Christopher Lee against green screen you know it is a bad, bad film.

Re: Final Destination 5 - 3D

Great deaths, saw the ending coming a mile off (and I've only ever seen 1 and 2 and they were on TV).

If ever this was made for a festival crowd and the audience reactions hightened the enjoyment of the movie then this was it, but it was rollocking good fun.

Re: A Lonely Place to Die

I found the music to be very distracting and unnecessary. When shooting in the outdoors (especailly the river scenes) I think just natural sounds would have been better than a bombastic soundtrack.

Unevenly paced too but it was an ok way to end the festival.

Re: The Holding

I think in the Q&A after the writer (director?) suggested that drafts were changed based on a supernatural element should be in or not.

Well acted and well paced but I found this to be rather dull and disappointing.

Re: Vile

I hate to say it, but this film would have been better if there had been more violence and gore in it.

Apart from the idea of collection vials this did nothing for me other than sing Therapys? 'Dopamine, Seratonin, Adrenaline' song (which, like this film, there a far better example of their 'genre').

Re: Fright Night - 3D

3D is pointless for this film and in general.

Aside from that I only saw the original when it first came so I can't and won't do a direct comparison.

It was entertaining enough but Chris Sarandon's cameo was the only thing of any memorable note and only that is from a film geek perspective.

Re: The Divide

They dropped the 'child experimentation' and 'external threat' very quickly, to the point of it being pointless being there, but I suppose this was about how people act in trapped situations and to that end I felt it could and even should have been even bleaker. A bit too average for me, though it l...
