The 7th Dimension (aka Beacon 77, 2009) Movie Review

Originally titled “Beacon 77”, low budget British science fiction conspiracy thriller “The Seventh Dimension” is an imaginative affair written and directed by Brad Watson. The film is certainly ambitious, attempting to tackle grand themes of science, technology, religion and the supernatural, despite for the most part only taking place in a small, nondescript flat. Having enjoyed a successful run at genre festivals, the film now arrives on region 2 DVD via Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment, coming with a making of documentary. Set in London, the film begins as a young woman called Sarah (Kelly Adams, who recently appeared in Nicolas Winding Refn’s awesome “Bronson”) accompanies her friend Zoe (British television actress Lucy Evans) on a mission to declare her love for her tutor Malcolm (David Horton) at his flat. They are somewhat surprised to find his living room filled with computers, which he and his fellow hackers, the disabled Declan and the

This week's new film releases

Predators (15)

(Nimród Antal, 2010, Us) Adrien Brody, Alice Braga, Topher Grace, Laurence Fishburne, Danny Trejo. 107 mins.

Twenty-three years and three sequels after the original, the sub-Alien sci-fi movie at last gets a proper follow-up, and even if Brody barely has the bulk to fill one of Schwarzenegger's combat boots, this serves up the semi-guilty action pleasures you'd demand. Brody is one of a gang of random human badasses who wind up in a strange jungle and realise they're now training material for apprentice alien badasses. So who will survive to be the, er, worst ass?

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (12A)

(David Slade, 2010, Us) Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner. 124 mins.

Another teen-conquering exercise in sexless erotica, but at least there's an actual film around it this time. A new vampire threat and Bella's love triangle won't be enough to entice newcomers, but fans will enjoy the unconsummated fantasy thrills they crave.

Hackers unleash hell in new indie horror BEACON77

The first thing that attracted me to Brad Watson's feature debut, Beacon77, was the intriguing poster which hints at something intense and cosmic going down in a London housing block. Then I noticed that the credits list Tim Wooster as the project's cinematographer.

Dp's are rarely household names so you may have never heard of Wooster, but he's long been one of the best eyes in the business having worked second unit on Babylon A.D., Wanted and most recently two films I'm highly anticipating, Michael Basset's Solomon Kane and Stuart Hazeldine's dystopian thriller Exam.

Synopsis:

Two young women arrive at a curious penthouse apartment, led by one’s crush on her tutor. However, her love interest doesn’t live alone. He’s part of a trio of computer hackers about to embark on the ultimate job on the world’s most mysterious mainframe. Whilst doing so, they unlock more
