There are enough loud colours and noise to make it bearable to watch.

Haha. I am sometimes tired enough that I just want to turn my brain off and veg out in front of something totally naff and trashy. I've downloaded it.
Nightmare on elm street 5 was the last film I watched like that and surprisingly it was nowhere near as shite as I expected!

Good luck. Anyway, anything with Jeffrey Combs appearing is always worth a gander.

Block Island Sound on Netflix.
Yeah. Good stuff. A nice take on the alien abduction genre.
Atmospheric. A bit creepy. Nice.

Everything's a bit up in the air at the minute. I'm split between two houses, looking after my sister who's had an operation and my nephew who's off school. My dad's had an op as well and I can't drive and they live miles apart and my teeth are all falling out.

I'm definitely knackered of a night time but the rickety chair I've got at my sisters pc, there's no way I'm sitting perched on that watching a relaxing film for an hour and a half!
If I get a spare moment, I just have a quick blast on my daft shooty game.

I'll bump it up the top of my "to watch" list and I'll definitely give it a go when stuff gets a bit more back to normal or maybe even one night where everyone turns in early, but honestly, mate, I wouldn't be expecting too many spellbinding insights.
"Me likey" or "me no likey. Me smash telly now!" is much more my style! :D

"I like the bit with the arse tits" is probably gonna be the extent of my review.

Hope you sort your teeth out. Going through the same thing. Faust can wait.

Good luck to you too, brother.
Yeah, shag my teeth, the flimsy pillocks. Sooner I'm shot of the lot of them, the better.
I'll just grow a nice hairy proboscis like yours.

Thanks for the recommendation, and apologies to brundle fly for bumping faust down the list as I was in the mood for something newer.

Felt like it was trying a little too hard a lot of the time with the snazzy editing and stuff, but sometimes it all came together quite well and everything worked, feeling nicely cartoony and strange and queasy.
Particularly when they first get to the house. From 20-50 minutes in, that half hour was great. The over the top performance of the old woman starts off fun and it all looks nicely flat and distorted and the weird vocal incidental music makes everything feel icky.

It ran out of steam halfway through and never seemed to get back on track, and like you say once it's shown it's cards, you knew the surprises were over.

A swing and a miss, but you've got to give them extra points for having a vision and going for it. Yeah, will be interesting to see what they do next!

Against my better judgement I watched The Power on Shudder based a the first few reviews underneath the video.  It's a pretty paint by numbers affair; kindof like if Hollyoaks made horror films (in fact sure it's got someone from Hollyoaks in it).  It's set in a London hospital back in the day(1970s?) and has some commentary on some dark things; but I couldn't help thinking it resembled "The Bureau" at several times with all the god awful laboured cockney accents (guv).

2/5 bit of a snoozefest.
