Pet

Post by jonbly » Fri Aug 26, 2016 11:55 pm

8/10 - More twists and turns than a twisty-turny thing. Liked the bedroom decor :). Didn't quite buy the ending, which glosses over a mountain of logistical difficulties...

My favourite of the films I saw over my two and a half days at the festival.

Strong performances. Grisly in the right places. A thoroughly entertaining watch. The least known about it going in, the better.

Same here. Best film so far. Loved everything about it and never saw that main twist coming. An easy 9/10

Best Film so far of the festival. Sick twisted and very well acted.

Agree with all the positive comments above.
The two leads were perfectly cast and had great chemistry.
Nice to see nobody's posted spoilers. If you missed it, go see it and make sure you do avoid spoilers

A terrific tale of obsession with a twist. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and the two leads were great in playing their intriguing characters.

I won't say too much as this is one of those films where it is better to know as little as possible about it before you see it.

I had a few minor quibbles around logistics and locations as mentioned by others, but other than that this was great tantalising fun. 9 / 10
No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.

My favourite of the festival before Train to Busan, and a real cut above the main screen films I'd seen up until this point on Friday. I didn't see the main twist coming and despite the logistical problems already mentioned it was suitably dark, convincing and very well made. Definitely a winner.

I found Dominic Monaghan's intro more entertaining and him appearing on a Saturday morning talk show the next day to be more surprising than any "twists" in this film.

Well acted though.

You see the twist coming? That is impressive...
