Spiderhole

Saddled with a head-scratcher of a title and a limp front cover endorsement, Spiderhole is predestined to be a bottom-shelf item. Yet Daniel Simpson's film displays talent behind the camera almost from the on-set, smartly investing in unnerving set design that improves on a well-worn plot serving mostly to get our young adult victims into a single setting. Loosely identified artists Zoe (Amy Noble), Molly (Emma Griffiths Malin), Toby (George Maguire) and Luke (Reuben-Henry Biggs) cruise around London for a place to squat. Familiar with their rights once settled down and looking to score a nice new home, the girls and boys luck out on a sizeable and seemingly abandoned mansion. They settle in, have the requisite hook-up and find a batch of bloody clothes.

A Title Like Spiderhole Hardly Baits: A Movie Review

Director / Writer: Daniel Simpson.

Cast: Amy Noble, Emma Griffiths Malin, Reuben-Henry Biggs, and George Maguire

Spiderhole might as well be pigeonholing itself in a genre of torture porn. Just how many viewers can really emphasize with the gang of four mates? Molly (Emma Griffiths Malin), Zoe (Amy Noble), Toby (George Maguire), and Luke (Reuben-Henry Biggs) think squatting is an exciting adventure. And not enough time is spent developing the reasons on why they decided to be homeless. Their need for independence from family is mentioned and that already signals their downfall.

When they can’t be bothered to ask for familial help, at least they have a closeness between one another. But even between four people, they should have an income so they can afford a cheap room. At last during the day, that can be shared amongst themselves.

Even with an ominous intro, where a girl awakes to a decrepit moth-riidden room,

Spiderhole and Becoming Trapped in Tragedy : A Movie Review

Spiderhole UK ArtworkDirector/writer: Daniel Simpson.

Tagline: "Forgive us our trespasses."

Spiderhole is an Irish shot horror film, which released on DVD in the United Kingdom March 21st. The term spiderhole, in nature, is a trap used by arachnids to lure unwary prey for feeding. In director Daniel Simpson's film, an abandoned house in London is used in much the same way, to lure unsuspecting victims. Then, the feelings aroused by this horror film are fear and pity, with Spiderhole showing its story to be partially sourced from tragedy (genre).

Identifying will four break-and-entering squatters is not an easy task. Zoe (Amy Noble), Molly (Emma Griffiths Malin), Toby (George Maguire), and Luke (Reuben-Henry Biggs) soon find themselves trespassers, as they drink themselves into a stupor. They awake to find a house which has trapped them within. Simpson's writing constantly keeps the tension and the suspense up, through mystery. The

This week's new films

The Kids Are All Right (15)

(Lisa Cholodenko, 2010, Us) Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Mia Wasikowska, Josh Hutcherson. 106 mins

Double lesbian motherhood proves to be no less messed up a family set up than any other here, although it does give two great actresses meaty roles, and open up a fresh set of complications when their teenage children track down their biological father (Ruffalo). Sexual politics play a distant second to character dramedy here, and even if it gets mushy, it's a funny, observant study of real, flawed people.

Burke & Hare (15)

(John Landis, 2010, UK) Simon Pegg, Andy Serkis, Isla Fisher. 91 mins

The well-filmed tale of Irish bodysnatchers in Edinburgh gets a Laurel and Hardyish treatment courtesy of Pegg and Serkis, with a dash of romantic comedy and plenty of celebrity cameos amid the irreverent corpse-mongering.

Involuntary (15)

(Ruben Östlund, 2008, Swe) Villmar Björkman, Linnea Cart-Lamy, Leif Edlund. 102 mins

Overtones of Östlund's compatriot Roy Andersson in this penetrating,
