Movie Review by Zara
May 16th, 2008

Favorite Movie Quote: "You've got to be kidding me."

What a weird little flick. Kind of a good thing, kind of a bad thing.

If you're into dark British humour, then you're probably going to end up liking this movie. That is, IF you can stomach the foul language and gruesome blood and guts that come with the horror half of the film.

If you're a horror fan who has a very solid history with the genre, you'll love the film's initial opening, '70's style credits and all. But you'll also be frustrated with the slow beginning and droll storyline of a basic kidnap/ransom duo.

I queued this up mainly for Andy Serkis because he's a rather undiscovered genius who is known mainly for being the inspiration and voice behind Gollum in the LOTR trilogy. His range might astound some people.

If it weren't for some DVD issues we were having with the player, this might have had a slightly better flow to it, transitioning from one genre into another and melding the two at some point. IF it even was there. I'm not sure there was a definitive point where they did it.

I WILL say that the ending rocked. I love great exit lines.
