Thought I would be supporting Melbourne film-making...
27 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

I thought that by spending 30 dollars on a locally made film, I would be supporting the Australian Film Industry - but if films from Melbourne are all like this - I'll never buy another. In fact, I don't think I will ever buy a locally made film... such a shame. This film has shaken all my faith in Melbourne. Shaken my faith in film in general. My eyes weep. My heart bleeds. It hurt so bad.

It's as if the director started with the intention of going through every single film filter in history. I think this film would have been not bad if not for the ludicrous pretentious use of stock AVID and Premier filters littered, with no real reason, throughout the film. The writing isn't horrible, the make up is quite good (as far as B grade horror goes) and the story is interesting enough - but beside all that Hard work, the director literally pulled down his pants and defecated all over the canvas with the filters, colors, bad computer generated effects, bad day for night shoots and editing, annoying monochrome -for-no-reason, etc etc etc. It's like watching somebody back when VHS video camcorders were released playing around with all the transition settings. I'm a fan of all film for the main part - from B grade and Z grade 60's and 70's exploitation horror all the way to Oscar fodder, and there was nothing in this that I can say I enjoyed. Nothing. It is a great film to watch if you want to see what not to do if you're a filmmaker, but only if somebody pays you to take a copy of the film.

I feel very sorry for the actors, who after 3 years of production, had to sit through this film at the premier and see there performances mangled under a pile of bad transitions, annoying over the top filters etc. It is such a shame.

And the fact that this won an award locally just goes to show how bad our industry is. I would usually never go out of the way to derail a film, but whoever wrote the last review was an inside man, and that's just cheating.

Watch if you enjoy: Gouging out your eyes. -0/10
