Ever see the video for Come To Daddy by Aphex Twin?
If you haven't, do yourself a favour and check it out. It is 10 utterly brilliant and terrifying minutes. You won't regret it.
Why mention this?
Cos the director of this steaming pile of dung has clearly seen it and decided that what works in 10 minutes can be definitely dragged out for 85. Come To Daddy works cos it's a music video. It doesn't have to observe real life logic.
This just doesn't work. No-one calls the police in this. No-one even seems to own one these new-fangled telephone machines all the young people are talking about these days.
There are good reviews for this film on this site. Ignore them. They are (strangely enough!) 1-review wonders.
This film is dreck. Avoid.
