Very Impressive For The Budget But Let Down By The Cast
28 February 2013 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

This comes with a marketing buzz . Written and directed by a real life physicist Luke Thompson on a budget of £2,000 DECAY centres around the premise of things going wrong at the Haldron Collider in Switzerland . You know what the Haldron Collider is don't you ? That's the famous energy particle accelerator that made headlines a few years back when some scientists tried to block the experiments via a court order claiming it might destroy the world by creating a black hole fears which turned out to be unfounded . When a scientist who knows what he's talking about uses the topical intangible fears of science to create a premise for a film then that that film is surely worth tracking down isn't it ?

Thompson deserves great credit for getting off his backside and making a movie . While the vast majority of wannabe directors sit around and whine that no one recognises their undiscovered genius Luke Thompson has put his own money where his mouth is and produced on a shoestring budget a well shot , well edited film complete with convincing make up and a musical score that suits the film . Need I repeat that this only cost £2,000 ? Put it like this - every small group of film students must know several people who could raise a few hundred quid in return for a executive producers credit . This film proves there's no excuse for not making a low to no budget movie

There is a problem with having a minuscule budget and it's obvious what it is - the cast . No offence but they really are quite dreadful in their debut roles all of whom are appearing in a movie for the very first time . Imagine you're trapped in a building and rabid blood thirsty zombies are trying to eat you alive ? How would you react ? Yeah me too but the cast here more often than not give the impression that someone has just turned off their favourite TV show rather than having to fight for their lives against zombie hordes . It's also a rather vapid menace of zombies when the Hadron Collidor offers so much scope for potential monsters like aliens from another dimension or anti-matter men but I guess having a few extras with fake blood running around pretending to be the undead is far easier to realise on screen than more imaginative creations

I really did want to love DECAY and some of my expectations were meet and even exceeded from a technical film making point of view . One should perhaps be more forgiving towards the amateur cast but unfortunately they're a bit too amateur and it's interesting the film works much better in the second half when there's little dialogue hence the characters don't have to say any lines in a distracting , stilted manner . Perhaps Thompson should have invested just a little more money casting professional actors . As it stands the general consensus on this page is close but no cigar and I quite agree
