Storyline

In England, the teacher of the Wittering College Robert Anderson is hit in the face by a student and is forced to take three months vacation to avoid being sued by the parents of the student. Robert is affected by the incident and a couple of months later, he is emotionally disturbed, alcoholic and separated of his wife Helen. Their daughter Kate lives with her mother and has classes with Robert, but she does not respect her father. The principal of Wittering College, Sarah Balham (Ruth Gemmell), loathes Robert and wants to get rid of him, but the Union does not allow her to fire him. When Robert reads about violence in another school, he sends a memo advising the employees of the school and he is considered paranoid and delusional by everybody. One day after hours, Robert notes some strange movements outside the school and he advises the security guard James that does not give much attention to the discredited Robert. But sooner Robert realizes that the Wittering College is under ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Interesting idea - poorly executed.
22 March 2011 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Right from the start of "F", you are made very aware that you're watching a British horror/thriller. Despite lacking some of the production/effects aspects of most modern Hollywood gorefests, this doesn't have to be a bad thing; films such as "Hush", and "Wilderness" are prime examples of this British style of film-making at a good standard.

Unfortunately, "F" doesn't follow suit. The storyline, whilst being interesting enough, has many plot holes - which exasperatingly the film never fills in. Staple questions such as "Who are the hooded assailants?", "Why have they chosen to attack the school now?" and "What happens next?" all go annoyingly unanswered, with nothing more than a "hint" included to wet your appetite, and an ending both utterly disappointing yet (interestingly) unsettling. This, contrary to what some others have said, does not add the atmosphere or film itself, it simply ticks the viewer off.

The acting was average at best. Nothing worth raging about, nothing worth complimenting. But the characters themselves were bland, uninteresting and very easy to dislike - especially the films main "protagonists", which is unusual even for a slasher film (which this film rudely masquerades as).

The few redeeming qualities the film had to offer were the unoriginal score, which did a stalwart job at creating tension in places, and the very eerie breathing sounds and mutterings, which I thought were genuinely frightening, (just a pity the film wasn't). The ending was as I've said previously "unsettling", which in my opinion both worked and failed simultaneously.

In conclusion, watch this film if you have NO OTHER options - but don't let the trailer and advertising fool you. Despite having some glimpses of gore it's usually gone and forgotten in a flash, and the frights are sadly very, very rare.

If you're looking for a cheap ridiculous "thriller" about faceless parkour experts with knives, "F" is for you.

If you're looking for a genuine horror/thriller about the youth of today, "Eden Lake" is for you.
