Even By The Low Standards Of The Genre This Is Very Poor
23 March 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

Love Meets Murder are a band who are failing to sell records . Their manager has a word with their record label who come up with the bright idea to do a promo video at a deserted warehouse somewhere in the Midlands . While the band and their entourage are making the video a murder takes place and it soon becomes clear that this murder will be the first of many

DEADTIME cost a grand total of £25,000 to produce so it deserves some congratulations . It was also filmed in Wednesbury and anyone who feels the need to stay in the English West Midlands is a braver man than me so again congrats to the production team . This will be the only praise they shall be getting for making this unlikable little monstrosity

When you watch a film and the only positive you can say about the characters is that they're not as bad as the mad serial killer that's not much of an endorsement . The whole idea is to make you empathise and understand the characters and their predicament . Watching these self centered slags taking drugs and have it off is slightly alienating . The last vestiges of any sympathy I might have had for them as soon as they found the body of the first murder victim where they had two choices to make

1 ) Leave the warehouse

2 ) Carry on making their promo

Guess what option they choose ? Worse than that it's set in the present day( 2012 ) as far as I know and yet not one single person seems to have brought a mobile phone with them . Very disadvantageous if you need to call the police and tell them you're getting stalked by a madman waving an axe about . This entirely sums up the clumsy ill thought out scripting of the story where common sense is totally ignored and if the screenwriter can't be bothered why should the audience be ?
