...and from the writer of my second favourite book series is - DEAD BODIES
I wanted to see this because of the simple fact that I wanted to know what Derek Landy was like as a scriptwriter in comparison to a novelist (I adore Landy's books - I'm in the middle of reading Skulduggery Pleasant 4 at the moment, my fav book series being the Harjunpää books). Needless to say that in comparison he is better as a novelist.
The premise of the film is that a guy is forced to get back together with his girlfriend, he doesn't like it one bit - they fight one day and the guy pushes her and leaves - after getting back into the house with his friend he finds his girlfriend dead - as soon as possible he bury's the body and coming across another at the place he bury's her then he reports the disappearance and they find the bodies.
Then after that it gets extremely complicated after that. I won't say any more though because to say more would show some of the twists and turns that happen within. It is also obvious that Landy wanted to make a sequel because of the open plot line at the end.
I did think that when watching that I wouldn't know anybody from it but I did, you will see Kelly Reilly in this who played Mary in Hollywood's Sherlock Holmes. Anyway this is decent entertainment, from the dialogue you can tell this is the writer of Skulduggery Pleasant.
