Salvage

Post by kimblebee » Tue Sep 01, 2009 4:29 pm

This film is another one that seemed to go down really well in the discovery screen - i found it quite tense once it got going and there is a really stark contrast between filming inside the house and on the street before the chaos breaks out and afterwards! Like Pontypool, again this is a film that subscribes to the 'showing less is more' school of thought and it works. I thought the lead actress and young girl in it gave fantastic performances and added a sense of realism to a rather surreal situation.

I enjoyed this too. A tense low budget British thriller which had a 'Right At Your Door' feel too it. Well worth catching for anyone that didn't managed to see it.

Gladded I missed Dead Snow for this...

Although it was very similar in parts to Jack Kilborns book Afraid.... think that's the authors name :D

Yeah have to say I really enjoyed this too, very very tense, I could could feel an almost constant sense of menace, would love to see this made with a bigger budget, some of the performances were superb, the lead lady especially.

The only film I caught on the discovery screen over the weekend and it was great - should have replaced one of the pap films on the main screen :)

I enjoyed Salvage apart from the 'monster' and the ending. I actually chortled a little bit at it.

I went in expecting it to be bad and was pleasantly surprised. Would have preferred if it was a zombie though :)

Liked this and a really diffrent experience being in the smaller screen.
Shaun Dooley is an excellent actor as well.

Enjoyed this. Should have been on the big screen instead of Zombie Women Of Poo...
