Storyline

A gruesome homage to the cult Amicus anthology Asylum, Cradle of Fear unfolds four screamplays all linked by the unspeakable need of an incarcerated child killer to wreak vengeance on those responsible for his imprisonment. Helped by deranged angel Dani Filth, who leaves a trail of charnel house death in his crimson wake, the cannibal convict forces two Goth vamps to endure a one night stand from hell, two tough female robbers to see through each other, an obscenely rich coke-head to chop up more than a few lines and an internet surfer to descend into madness when he uncovers the ultimate web depravity.

Detective Neilson: Bollocks.

Better than the majority of horror movies these days
31 October 2004 | by (Rainham, England (the worst place on earth)) – See all my reviews

When one of my friends lent this to me I didn't really know what to expect. I knew that it was low budget and extremely gruesome. But in my eyes, low budget horror movies are better than high budget ones (Resident Evil anyone?). The storyline as a whole, I think, is really good (although a little disjointed at times) and the characters were really diverse, the acting wasn't the best I've seen but when is it in a horror movie! although Dani Filth played 'The Man' brilliantly, I couldn't have thought of a better person for the job. It makes you wonder though whether he was really that evil because the people he killed were not exactly nice people. Another thing that added to it's horror movie quality was the low budget special effects, they weren't awful, but you could tell at times that they looked fake. This just makes it better though in my opinion. So on a whole I think this movie is brilliant and it makes a change from the really poor horror movies that have been coming out recently.

9/10
