DVD: Heartless

Sometimes I get the feeling that I'm watching something different from everyone else...
Every review I have read heaps praise on this British horror film, I'm not going to.

There is a moment in this film where we get to see monsters in hoodies and I'm afraid it's all downhill from there. Reminded me of the moment in Jeepers Creepers where the bad guy sprouted wings, I just couldn't take it seriously from then on in.

It had a promising start too as we join a young man living with a "strawberry" birth mark, constantly hiding his face behind his hood. He lives with his Mum and starts to see an increase in violence all around.
Unfortunately it becomes a jumble of mental illness and supposed Demons on the loose and I found myself reaching for the fast forward button just to get to the limp conclusion.

  1. You never know Alex, maybe you'd agree with all the people who seem to love it. It just didn't work for me.

  2. Well done review, Ric. Until movie studios realize that special effects and pretty people are no substitute for a good story and strong performances, we will just have to continue to wade through the muck of this type of B-movie fare, or not.

  3. Hi Tom,
    Yes this one was unintentionally hilarious at times. I've got my fingers crossed for a couple of movies this summer though. Let's hope they're decent.

  4. Don't you think that if a study of mental illness, it made perfect sense, and was superb? If it wasn't, then I agree with you.


Let me know what you think. I value all comments and fully intend to reply.
