This wine glugs. A good sign. Have to say, I’ve been looking forward to getting a screener of this one. Just seen the name around and fancied it.
Dude. You just flicked past Turtles. I pray you get your comeuppance.
That Rugged comic looks a bit like Crossed. I wonder if it’s supposed to be a version of it.
Emo kid has a local accent. He said “munny”.
Younger kid is old enough to play in his own room by himself.
Professor Dad has a very odd delivery. Like he’s reading from a script. I don’t think this film is the one I’d been hearing about.
Does Professor Dad really keep zombies in his basement? I take work home with me, but that’s taking it too far.
Italian Killer is like a younger, more deranged, Italian Werner Herzog (sober edit – he really wasn’t, but hell…). Love Herzog, both for the films and the mythos he’s built around himself. His cameos in Rick and Morty and Parks and Recreations are brilliant. And the collapse scene in Nosferatu is one of the most haunting things ever.
Pretentious kid spouting about GTA on the PSP. It wasn’t written to help understand violence. There’s no overarching polemic, it’s just about blowing things up.
Professor Dad wouldn’t be put of place in Doctors. As I’m off work today, I’ve had the joys of daytime TV. Which reminds me. Why did nobody tell me that Dion Dublin was on Homes Under the Hammer?
This film is the first I’ve seen since the start of Corking Movies that actually harms the pizza industry.
Is that kid the ghost kid from House on Elm Lake?
Greg Wallace’s tattoo is like the talisman from the board game of the same name.
Ooh, just remembered. Whoever did the audio rocks. When they are loading guns earlier, the clunks and clicks were beautifully crisp.
Do people playing villains like this ever struggle. Playing someone this vile can’t be easy, and, I think, if you’re playing the victim, you’d have to trust the aggressor. And sadly, you can tell they’re not intimidated by the aggressors (and Testemento does play a decent nutcase).
I think with the home invasion genre, foreign language films have an advantage. The language barrier causes the viewer to be isolated from the killer. I think having too clean a film quality has a negative effect too. Look at the scene in Henry. It feels real because it’s filmed on a camcorder. This doesn’t have any of the alienation. We’re too obviously in a fiction and this genre needs that not to be the case.
The gore is better than I’ve seen for a while.
I think the internet has taken some of the mystique away from this sort of film. For example, when I was young, the story was that the hillbillies in Deliverance were real mountain men and security guards were on set with guns in case they got carried away. IMDB says otherwise.
There seems to be very little in the way of security at this facility.
“Here we are at Suarez’s house.” Are they looking to get bitten?
Back to the security thing. I suppose RE2 was just as bad. There’s a huge facility just sitting under a police station. You’d think these things would be in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by barbed wire and stuff.
Are we going to get a zombie flesh eaters ending? Hopefully a zombie fighting a shark too.
It’s Nemesis! My RE2 reference counts! I loved RE2.
That’s some good head stoving.
Jesus. Are these special forces guys doing an homage to Resident Evil with this acting?
We did get the Zombie Flesh Eaters ending.
Is the film a metaphor for how America turned the UK into a base for its nuclear weapons? As a lot of anime did (sober edit – I appear to have just stopped mid sentence here. I was rather drunk though).
