A large dose of artistically-mounted gloom porn rather than the truly explorative piece of work that it might have been.

Rudd and Coogan manage to build up enough goodwill with their double act that its hard to resent the film’s shallow approach to its more serious aspects.

While there are a few shortcomings in terms of overall storyline construction, the quality of the performances and central character development do much to offset this.

The script and performances deepen and broaden the story considerably, lifting what could have been a simple “in the moment” adventure thriller to another level.

The Devil Outside

The dramatic conflict here is so unsubtle and lacking in nuance that it ends up being more hilarious than believable.

A Punk Daydream

There are a number of particularly startling and moving moments here.

Ultimately isn’t quite the musical answer to Shaun of the Dead that it should have been. Nonetheless, it’s worth seeing for sheer novelty value alone.

Both authoritative and softly-spoken in that unmistakable Mark Cousins style.

If you are fully prepared to take jokes which possess genuine wit while traipsing gleefully into decidedly taboo territory then this will be right up your alley.

The raw energy and anger on display will leave the viewer walking out of the cinema suitably shaken by the experience.

The characters here come across like how human beings really should.

A film which seems to lack any consistent tone or purpose.

One of the most uninteresting films that could conceivably be made about such an endlessly enthralling subject.

This sense of vulnerability heard peering out from behind that giant rock star ego successfully creates a deeper connection with the viewer...

Viewers who a fully prepared to wallow in the gritty, gruelling and gory will be in their element here.

Director Palmer maintains an impressively solid grasp on the suspense throughout a relatively long 110-minute runtime.

Funny, poignant, inventive, exciting and perfectly paced.

While the comedy is often misjudged, Toby MacDonald still manages to convey the romantic tension of the original story pretty well.

Poster for Blood Fest

Blood Fest

Won’t go down in history as any kind of seminal horror masterpiece but, nonetheless, it’s undeniably entertaining.

These ordinary people feel real and complex. We spend time sharing their joy, humour and sadness but Marc Turtletaub never handles it in a forced or overdone manner.

Poster for Erik the Conqueror

Erik the Conqueror

A quintessential and highly entertaining example of how sheer in-camera ingenuity and imagination can triumph over the kind of financial constraints...

Stamps its own monochromatic imprint on the vampire movie landscape.
