The Diabolical

7/10 - Fun to watch, but full of plot holes on later inspection... Nicely made, and good performances from the kids.

An entertaining haunted house story that takes a left-field turn half-way through, which makes it different albeit it didn't 100% convince me, even if does make sense in the context of the movie. Ali Larter did well in the lead role. 7.5 / 10
No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.

Another film that started really well but once it revealed it's 'twist' became stupid and ran out of steam.

I've still got no idea why they were sending the guy back in time or what the point of it all was.

The exposition scene with the 2 orderlies/guards in the future was really clumsy and still didn't make sense of what happened unless i'm just being really thick....

I really liked this one. My 4th fave of the festival after 1.Nightfare 2. Bait 3.Howl.
Always liked "transporter" horror ever since the malfunction in Star Trek The Motion Picture, and of course The Fly.
One of the scarier horrors as well of the weekend as well
