‘Eat Locals’ Review

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Charlie Cox, Billy Cook, Freema Agyeman, Robert Portal, Mackenzie Crook, Eve Myles, Vincent Regan, Tony Curran, Dexter Fletcher, Ruth Jones, Annette Crosbie | Written by Danny King | Directed by Jason Flemyng

The directorial debut of actor Jason Flemyng, this low budget British horror-comedy has a solid cast and a moderately intriguing premise, but it can’t quite decide whether it wants to go for scares or laughs and ends up falling awkwardly between the two.

Written by Danny King (Wild Bill), Eat Locals (originally Eat Local, with an ‘s’ being added in the marketing stage) centres on a coven of centuries-old vampires – including Daredevil’s Charlie Cox, Doctor Who’s Freema Agyeman and One Foot in the Grave‘s Annette Crosbie – convening for their semi-centennial meeting at a remote country farmhouse. Also present is naïve orphan Sebastian (Billy Cook), who thinks he’s on a promise with vampish Vanessa (Eve Myles,

'Eat Locals': Film Review | FrightFest 2017
A low-budget British vampire comedy with more bark than bite, Eat Locals feels like a school reunion project for survivors of Guy Ritchie’s early gangster films. The director is one-time Ritchie regular Jason Flemyng, the cast includes cameos from his former screen comrades Dexter Fletcher and Nick Moran, and the main fight sequence was guest-directed by breakout action star Jason Statham. But a much more obvious influence than Ritchie on this affectionate horror parody are the genre-spoofing comic-book antics of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, whose tongue-in-cheek signature style looms large enough here to invite some unflattering comparisons.

Poster and trailer for horror-comedy Eat Locals starring Charlie Cox

Ahead of its UK Premiere at this year’s FrightFest at The Prince Charles Cinema on 26th August, The Movie Partnership has released a poster and trailer for Jason Flemyng’s (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, X-Men: First Class) directorial debut, the horror comedy Eat Locals, which is described as “Assault On Precinct 13 meets Interview With A Vampire“.

In a quiet country farmhouse, Britain’s vampires gather. They come together once every 50 years to discuss territories, disputes, threats and food stocks, and the approval of new members. On this night, a new face will be meeting them for the first time, and – if the vote is unanimous – could be the latest member to join their fanged ranks.

This new face, however – local lad Sebastian Crockett – merely thinks he’s on a promise with sexy cougar Vanessa.

Unluckily for all, Sebastian’s not the only guest who’ll be dropping in tonight.

Review: My Name Is Lenny (2017)

My Name Is Lenny is a sport drama which deals with the darker side of unlicensed boxing in the 70s focusing on Lenny McLean (Josh Helman) and his three fights with the undisputed heavyweight champion Roy ‘Pretty Boy’ Shaw (Michael Bisping).

Although the film is based in the world of unlicensed boxing, the film goes beyond the fighting and looks back at some of the events that created the man Lenny was to become. Most notably his relationship with his violent stepfather, played by Lenny’s nephew Martin Askew, who is also one of screenwriters. Through flashbacks you get a glimpse of the violence of his childhood and the drive he had to fight his way out. The film doesn’t make excuses for some of his actions, but it does give you an insight of why it was so important to be known as ‘The Guv’Nor’.
