“brush you to death?”
Any film that uses a yappy toy dog as a weapon has got to be one to watch!
Very British and with tons of fun Alien references (and one for Donnie Darko I think), it’s a tiny cast that do a very good job. No one is superflouous and everyone has a dimension to them, you know? Not just a vehicle to deliver lines. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen most of these guys in British TV series so they’ve had some training and Noel is a good linch-pin without taking over.
Nicely set in a maze of corridors – sorry, containers – and played for some laughs without removing the scary element, I think the only thing they could have done better with this was to hide the monster a little more, make it a bit more creepy. Good monster though.
All the horror elements are there including Alien type music and even though this isn’t a bum-wetter – for Americans you can substitute ‘fanny’ as long as you don’t say fanny-wetter to anyone else – it’s clearly a solid piece of low-budget work.
DVD Extras: A nice group of odds and ends. I always like to see outtakes and gag-reels and there’s none of that here, possibly due to finances but you do get a couple of personal vids.
No, Fun but not enough.
Watch if on TV?
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
A bit of a snog behind the storage units. One time fling, that kind of thing.
