Let Us Prey (2014) Film Review. Creative Scotland,Fantastic
Films,Greenhouse Media Investment,Irish Film Board. Directed by Brian
O'Malley. Distributed by Kaleidoscope Entertainment. Certificate 18,
running time 92 minutes.
A great little indie chiller,from Scotland with Liam Cunningham as a strange drifter who just appears one night. It just so happens to be Pc Rachael Heggie's first night as a constable,in a small remote rural Police Station,with Sgt Macready as her gruff and not very welcoming boss.
Thing is none of the constables make Rachael welcome,and almost makes my assumption that most Coppers are ignorant,full of themselves ego maniacs. The thing is Rachael arrests a local trouble making youth for dangerous driving. The strange thing is by chance other people are arrested at around the same time,including the drifter,who's record say he has been dead since the 1970's.
Is it some coincidence that he is there,the same as 3 others.Who each have dark secrets,the Wife Beating Teacher, the Doctor,who may have just gone a little crazy,and killed his family,and the youngster who might have been involved in another hit and run,leaving a young lady dying in a ditch somewhere. The thing is the drifter has a way of corrupting the prisoners,who all confess to their sins. In all fairness I was not expecting much from this,but was actually pleasantly surprised,also it was very violent,in places,with violence coming from nowhere.
A quite disturbing little tail,of bad people,some how congregating in the same place at the same time. With one man almost pulling their strings,like puppets. With an outcome, that in fairness you could guess a while off. It is still an enjoyable little Horror,about the Devil finally coming to earth to claim the souls of very bad people with PC Rachael caught up in the mayhem. Although this is not particularly that original,the acting is surprisingly good,especially from Liam Cunningham as the Drifter and Pollyanna Macintosh as Rookie PC Rachael Heggie.
The absolute genius of this film,is the opening credits,that puts most modern films with huge budgets to shame,that is so intriguing,you cannot wait to see what happens next,without cleverly giving nothing away. A fabulous way of grabbing your attention straight away,that sets the scene for a very disturbing violent film,that is maybe not shocking,but still a fantastic horror thriller. With parts of the film reminding me of Event Horizon,but obviously not in space. A fantastic British horror.
I came across this trailer on YouTube yesterday, and it is doing the rounds again on social media, a trailer first showing in 2015, that got everyone talking " is this for real" " this can not be a film can it?" As it turns out no, it is a trailer that is well made, but certainly is not going to be a film anytime soon.
A one joke trailer about a randy ghost intent on jerking men off, using handjobs, I'm surprised the tag line wasn't "Cumming soon".
This was obviously made by men with a running narrative that women cannot give a decent handjob, and having them do the deed is worse than death, instead you have a ghost who wants to jerk all men to death.
It is as awful as you'd expect it to be, but I still found myself chuckle a few times, it is rude, crude, insinuating, and in fairness harmless fun, a film if made I would actually probably watch, it certainly looks better than the recent Cabin Fever, Evil Dead 2013.
Tree is about to have a very bad day, again, and again and again.
College Grad Tree, a self centred bitch, who you take an instant dislike to, who is foul to everyone.
Treats everyone like dirt, then wonders why someone would want her dead. With a groundhog Day loop thing going on every time she is murdered she has to live through the same Monday the 18th, until she can find out her wants her dead, solve her own murder, and maybe become a better person in the mean time.The thing is I really wanted to hate this movie, but I couldn't, because of the performance from Jessica Rothe as Tree, in her first scream queen role, starring previously in La La Land, and Netflix's Parallels.
She is so likeable and believable in the role, although playing the bitch perfectly, she is deep down a damaged soul, still mourning the death of her mother, and her grief is her anger towards fellow People.
With some inventive kills, and no matter what Tree does, the day always ends in her death, with …
A film that strangely has been long forgotten, from 1980, and a film that has no mention about any remake or reboot. That is how this good film has been left on the shelf, compared to other slashers of that decade. Strange as it has possibly the best onscreen kills, with amazing practical effects from Gore master Tom Savini.
A jilted soldier returns home from world war 2, hearing just before that his girlfriend has replaced him with another man. At the graduation ball of 1945, Rosemary is brutally slain alongside her new boyfriend. Shocking the town, that another ball has been postponed for 35 years. It is now 1980 the ball has been agreed once more, and the jilted soldier is not happy and decides to slay the party goers once more.
Formally known as the Prowler especially in the States, but changed to Rosemary's Killer in the UK. The film apart from the great Gore effects is quite average though, and probably why it has never been remade. With the jilted soldier in…
