Underrated B-movie with an edge. Ahead of it's time.
15 December 2006 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

Oh how I like this little, low budget movie. The plot is somehow interesting and something I haven't seen much in any other movie.

The serial killer premise mixed with reality t.v. really got me hooked in. Also, the movie somehow deals with some kind of mental illness in the likes of "Memento". So there you go, you have an interesting plot and some really well done scenes of action and mystery.

The acting is pretty good. Those British are really good actors. I love the accent. Sadie Frost delivers a sexy, sassy performance. She was tremendously sexy in this movie with all those mini skirts. Sorry, I had to point that.

"Crimetime" is an underrated Thriller with some Sci-Fi influences. I dug the Reality T.V. situations because it's a topic way ahead of it's time.

Watch "Crimetime" with low expectations and you might enjoy it. I did.
