Thought this was a bit overhyped (bloodiest FF movie ever? Really?) and there were far to many "oh they're not really dead" moments. But, it's pretty enjoyable even and nice to see a movie from a relatively unfamiliar locale.

When it came up in the subtitles "When will this be over" and "I just want to go home" it echoed my sentiments entirely.

Not bad but not great either

I loved this film, but then i do like alot of blood with my horror!

Agree though it was a shame it wasn't shown a bit earlier, to a larger crowd.

Loved it towards the end when everyone not dead was slipping around on the bloody floor!

I am also an Inside fan, but think this one topped it on the bloody scales.

Will defo be buying the DVD.

That's probably for the best

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.

Solid, but not the bloodiest movie ever (not even the bloodiest of this festival - Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl?), had some good moments and hilariously inept police - something that seems to be a theme this year!

Liked the crazy mother and the way she said 'Astrid' (Aaaaaastriiiiiiiid), but after a while theres only so many times that you think someone can be dead before they suddenly jump up to save the day / attack unexpectedly before it gets a little tired. Having said that, a film with excessive amounts of blood late at night is always appreciated.
