I hold this film in very high regard. It is quite hard to categorise. It's a dark and brooding tale of a teenager, it's packed full of interesting relationships and it's a real film about people. It has elements of fantasy and Horror but the mix makes it almost stand-alone. It's a film for thinkers. It works on so many levels, the cast is superb and all performances are deep and extremely believable. The story follows Jake Gyllenhaal's "Donnie Darko"…
This is one of my most watched Vampire films. David Slade's 30 Days of Night is a fantastic comic book adaption. It's a rewarding little vampire shocker, set in some great locations, with an effective use of colour and sound that sets a real creepy tone. It's set in Barrow Alaska, the northernmost town in the United States. It's the beginning of 30 days without sunlight and the towns remaining residents are about to be hunted down by a group…
Serenity is Joss Whedon's feature length debut. His previous work was the very successful TV series Buffy, Angel and Firefly. More recently he has been propelled into super stardom with Avengers Assemble.
Serenity is a film set 6 months after the series Firefly ended. It's a futuristic space adventure focusing on the crew of the space ship Serenity captained by the charismatic Mal, played brilliantly by Nathan Fillion. It is a great adaptation of a TV series to feature length…
The hand-held camera style of shooting suits this film down to the ground. This is found footage done very well indeed. It's a fast paced, tense and rather scary Spanish horror which has unfortunately and shamefully been remade in US under the title: Quarantine. [REC] has a small cast and unlike the mass infections of similar films in this genre, the outbreak is contained within one building which heightens the scares and there's a real feeling of claustrophobia throughout. You just really want to get out. Like horror - Like this.
