    Nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said before. A truly visceral but not gratuitous (without being fully sanitised) look at what can only be described as a living hell. A hell that is fortified by an immense soundtrack. For me though the true hero of the piece is the Spitfire. The sections with it in are simply breathtaking.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Enjoyable if a little too long but when the plot got a little baggy I happily passed the time spotting the less obvious Easter eggs from my childhood. I would warn potential parent and child viewings that there is a very faithful reproduction of the scariest scenes from The Shining. My 10 year old daughter was non-plused by it but I absolutely papped myself!

    Brilliantly uncomfortable from almost the moment it starts. Never have a bunch of old white people been so stoned-faced scary. Frightening and funny in all the right measures. Loved it.

    One of the first horror movies I ever saw and I'm not sure how much of the fear generated by this movie comes from my adolescent brain but it still chills me to the bone. My favourite Goldblum performance by far.
