I'm sorry but found Deadtime very much an entertaining movie! This Shocker! Rocker movie ticks all the right boxes and some, it's quite funny in parts too. With a couple of interesting cameo performances particularly from Leslie(Eastenders)Grantham, Terry Christian and Joe (Sherlock Holmes)Egan who all add to the mix of this delicious BLOODY yarn. The basic story line is a rock band well past its sell by date and now a burden to its record company, are giving one more chance to make good on their contract. So are sent to a warehouse to shoot a promo for their forthcoming musical release, which they hope will resurrect their careers. Unfortunately the desolate location is a 'Psychos wet dream' and all hell breaks loose when a murderer decides to join the shoot. It's Brutal, Bloody, British Indie Movie Extraordinaire, for starters the budget wouldn't even cover the transport taxis on a Hollywood movie. Bearing that in mind this movie is a triumph on many levels firstly it pays homage to the slasher genre credibly, its full of fast, fun and furious BLOODY frolics. Not to the mention the Blood and Guts and there is lots of it! Did I mention its gore? It was rumourer that it even had to be censored at a R rating due to some really gruesome Killings in the movie, what bloodier than this? Well the D.V.D extras may be worth a look at if you fancy even more blood. Before I start slating the movie or its actors which a lesser more cynical, malicious or possibly even agenda driven critic might to choose to. It's worth mentioning the performances are both credible and believable for the genre with some exceptions of lesser characters. That blip aside Jimmy the bands manager played by (CarlColeman)the lead fronts the film with refreshing honesty as an Idealist who loves music, but not the industry and believes in his band. Anji his girl friend (Elizabeth Shalavi) adds a bit of comedic northern spice to the mix and not forgetting Zac (Laurence Saunders) who's performance is also witty and sharp. This trio all shine above the rest, also the castings of Carl Coleman and Elizabeth Shalavi movie are bold as they are refreshing both leads are black think (Hunger Games) but this shouldn't be about race but end results. So leave your brains(PUN) at the door, get the beers, snacks, popcorn in and have a good night in and believe you me, it's highly likely you will enjoy this movie. My only criticism is it should have been released for HALLOWEEN!
