1960's Mod Horror
20 February 2015 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A B-Movie style horror shot in black and white by Graham Fletcher-Cook and set in the sixties.

The black & white cinematography is affective and its clear a lot of work has gone in to creating a film for its time.

Anyone growing up in London in the sixties will instantly feel at home in the modest two up two down house shared by East End couple Ruby played by the outstanding (Annie Burkin) and Lyle (Billy Wright).

You cant fail to notice the almost portable b&w television and nik naks that adorn the mantelpiece and the kitsch art on the walls and what really caught my eye was the two seated centre piece dining table. It all took me back to Visiting my Nan and Grandad who like Ruby and Lyle always ate dinner the same way, sitting sideways on, never facing each other.

Lyle is huge man while Ruby is a slip of a girl but they look every inch a couple and the viewer will sense the obvious strong love between them coming through the film.

A dark yet funny film that moves at a pace that keeps you gripped from the opening scene where we see Ruby and Lyle trying to clean up a blood soaked carpet.

What follows is hard to explain without giving too much away but there are enough twists and turns to keep you involved until its tragic conclusion.

There are some great cameo performances from Nicola Stapleton and Julian Firth but the star of the show for me was Lyle's brother, the slimy Melvin with his squeaky cockney voice and played so well by (Frank Boyce) he's a nasty little horrible creature but he had me laughing out loud on several occasions.

Special mention must go to the Director of Photography Jeanette Monero whose contribution doesn't go unnoticed, nor does the work by the sound crew.

Get a box of popcorn and a super sized fanta because once you start watching it your not gonna wanna leave your seat.

Overall a well written and well made film by a good writer and great cast.

A must see!
