Robert (2015) Film Review. Production Company North Bank Media.Distributed by 4Digital Media UK. Directed by Andrew Jones. Certificate 15 UK.
Now I'm a lover of independent cinema,I like to give all films a decent chance,and this film could have been a shining light of British independent film making,with better,believable actors this film could have been fantastic,as the director uses the Doll very well,we never see it move,but we know he has,there is a genuine sense of dread in some scenes. And the Doll is used perfectly,it is just the script could have been better,the film maybe shorter by 10 minutes off the running time,this then could have been a decent film,the fact it is based on a true story,and the haunted doll rests in a sealed glass unit in America somewhere. As I said earlier the film showed real promise from the start,then it changed,with an unbelievable family unit,which ruined the whole film. Shame as I was really looking forward to watching this,to have my expectations a little ruined.
