genuinely scare-inducing
6 February 2002 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Okay, I think everyone will admit that recent British horror films ain't been up to scratch when compared to the State's output. 'Long Time Dead' goes some way to closing the gap.

Probably the first film in a few years that have made me actually jump out my seat in shock, the film's fright's don't stop and end with shock-factor. The most frightful moments come from unseen forces being at work - similar to 'Final Destination', but a lot more 'real' due to the enemy being spirits/ghosts/demons rather than 'death'. Some very tense moments come when nothing can be seen, only felt - you can actually feel the fear.

The acting in the main is pretty poor apart from the actual 'fear sequences' that are very believable (far more so than Blair Witch). I think the problem lies with some shady dialogue as opposed to the actors talents. The one problem with the film is that when the demon manifests itself it just isn't as scary as when it was invisible.

If you love classic horror along the lines of 'The Exorcist', the hammer horror series, and 50s b-movies, you'll love this. If not, avoid it. Pure popcorn fodder.
