The Brothers Freeman
Michael J. Prosser,
In a quiet countryside farmhouse, Britain's vampires gather for their once-every-fifty-years meeting. Others will be joining them too; Sebastian Crockett, an unwitting Essex boy who thinks he's on a promise with sexy cougar Vanessa; and a detachment of Special Forces vampire killers who have bitten off more than they can chew. This is certainly going to be a night to remember... and for some of them it will be their last. Written by
I'm giving this fairly low score even though I actually liked a lot of this movie. That's because overall it doesn't deliver. There is definitely a lot of potential here. The plot is fairly simple and quite sound, though sadly unfulfilling.
The cast is a mish-mash of capable (and quite talented) actors and equally talent-less armatures who couldn't make first cut in a pre-school play. This is probably the biggest issue with the film though the writing is equally as inconsistent.
I simply don't think the story or script were ready for production. As I said, there are some good bits with some quite funny scenes, but there is simply too much screen time which is decisively average or below par, and this really causes the story to labour. Just a bit of rehashing to bring the general level up a notch or two would have worked wonders for this film.
Aside from the oversized vampire teeth which when worn made all the actors speak like they were wearing false vampire teeth, the special effects were actually quite good. This was also somewhat surprising given the skimping that went on the cast, but hey, credit where due.
Hope this helps.
