A pleasant surprise
16 September 2015 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This was my favourite film at FrightFest during the packed weekend of genre fans gathering for the exciting premieres.

I'll admit I went into Road Games not expecting much. But that's only because I knew nothing about it, and it had been totally off my radar. But that only made it all the better for it. My intrigue was from that it seemed to have an interesting cast - Frederic Pierrot and Barbara Crampton in the same movie! I'll give it a go, I thought. And I think going in not knowing anything (or as little as possible) is a bonus.

I was totally taken by surprise, and a very pleasant surprise at that. Road Games is so much fun with twists and turns aplenty; whether or not you see any of the turns coming is clearly not meant to detract from the enjoyment of the film. The multi-layered characters and plot beats are fascinating to the point I can't wait to get the chance to watch it again.

And the film has a very high standard of acting - not one beat to fault in the performances. They are just excellent. Director Abner Pastoll clearly excels working with actors. Not to forget the score was a pulsing delight, and almost played a character in its own right.

Road Games is an assured, surprising and quality debut. Not without its (very minor) faults, I can't wait to see what Pastoll does next. Now that he's on my radar, the expectations are up pretty high...

very close to a 10 but until I get a chance to see it again I'll stick to my 9/10
