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.
I really had high expectations for this movie especially as it covers something that affects me and millions of others that is extreme nightmares and sleep paralysis, a condition where your brain thinks your awake yet you are still dreaming, yet you cannot move your body, and you feel like something else is in the room with you.
Plot summary, the Morgan's who are already suffering from grief, after losing a child to cot death, and their oldest son Daniel (Lucas Bond) is suffering night terrors, and a nightmare of something trying to suck the life out of him. They go to a Sleep expert Alice Arnolds (Maggie Q) who's own life suffered a tradegy when her brother died as a young child in a sleepwalking accident. These are resurfaced again after coming in contact with the boys family, who she is trying to help, with nightmares of her younger brother tormenting her once more. With her visions and nightmares getting progressively worse, and the boys life is in serious danger as these…
A rarity that a sequel surpasses the original, but to actually better it, and out smart it, is an amazing feat. I cannot put into words how good this movie is. A film that Ryan Reynolds was born to play, a natural comedian, the one liners, the piss taking of Marvel and DC, the whole X Men theme is ripped apart again, with Wade whizzing around the School for gifted, in Professor Xavier's chair saying it smells like Patrick Stuart. The action set pieces are bigger and better, the car, moped chase scene is worth the admission price alone. A film that was so naturally funny these days are a rarity alone, it is without doubt easily one of the funniest scripts ever. With spot on casting from the inclusion of Josh Brolin as Cable, cameos from Bill Skarsgård, to Terry Crews, Rob Delany as Peter. With outstanding performances from Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Hunt From The Wildness actor Julian Dennison as Firefist. This film is as close to perfection as any movie I'll ever go and see. …
