Dumb idea. All the problems of violence and terror lumped into one night a year. Like that’s going to work! Just encourage people that are that way inclined! Also ruin the economy, social structures and any sense of liberty, this then causing full scale riots across the entire world.

So, putting that aside, is the film any good? Well, it’s got nice production, acting isnt bad and there’s a certain sense of depth to the characters but to put it bluntly, the only reason it exists is this shock value of allowed crime. There isnt much going on that makes me care about anyone or anything in the strange world being examined.

It’s not even a very good horror although I have to admit to some scenes that were a bit creepy with that what-will-happen-next feeling. Not enough though.

BLURAY EXTRAS: Making of. That’s it. Maybe there’s different levels of bluray?? Anyway, an interesting feature but not worth the extra.

Keep DVD?

Watch if on TV?

Snog, Marry, Avoid?
