DVD: Paintball

A team of thrill seekers are cuffed, hooded and abandoned in Redball
Woods. They then embark on a game of survival in this surprisingly good action horror.

Quickly subjected to a violent ambush the eight strangers suddenly realise that what they thought was a game is something far more sinister.

This is a simple idea and we have been here many times before in films like Surviving The Game and Southern Comfort but it is very well executed.

The production team behind The Machinist and Quarantine serve up a fast paced atmospheric treat here as the hunter stalks his prey. Alliances form and break as everyone realises that their lives depend on each decision they make.

The acting from a cast of unknowns is a bit below par but that is a small complaint in this type of film. Recommended for action / horror fans that aren't too fussy.

  1. This is the sort of thing that sounds interesting to me but I can't actually watch... I have a very limited tolerance for horror flicks! I need minimal violence and a happy ending, both hard to find.

  2. Check my top lists elsewhere here Guinevere, I'd recommend that you try Seven Pounds with Will Smith and The Jacket with Adrien brody if you haven't seen them already
