I saw the first screening of Reverb at Bafta a few months back and you could really feel its effect on the audience as the tension mounted. These days most horror films rely on gore to try and make the audience feel something, and while this film does have its fair share of the red stuff it expertly uses old fashioned suspense to make you squirm. It also manages to make you care about the characters which really adds to the suspense. Visually the film is very different to most British horrors I've seen (and American ones come to that) and manages to go beyond its Far Eastern influences to create a hybrid I haven't seen before. The central idea behind the film is really strong and never once makes you question the reality of what is happening on screen. The performances are strong too, especially Eva Birthistle (who we last saw in State of Play) and Leo Gregory of Stoned fame. Go and see this when you get the chance, you won't be disappointed.
