Ah.... the good old days..
26 November 2005 | by (Southampton, England) – See all my reviews

The good old days, when horror didn't have to be a) Ironic b) Overtly gory or c) Pychologically damaging. The good old days when a horror movie could make you laugh out loud at it's plain stupidity and low budget. In fact if it didn't say 1992 on the label you'd swear this was a vintage 80's comedy horror. This is a film that revels in it's low budget; in fact it doesn't so much revel it basks in it, bathes in it even.. Yes the acting is suspect but then I'd be worried if it was up for acting awards. The tongue is firmly stuck in the cheek. In short, Lost In Time is fun. It won't cure cancer, it won't win Oscars but it'll make you laugh and it'll take you back to a time when horror could be fun. Ask yourself, when was the last time Horror did that intentionally? 8/10 And a special mention for director Anthony Hickox. Just why isn't he doing bigger films?
