so much of this is set in a dark, deserted hotel
1 September 2013 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

I like the quirky, sexy and visceral, England set horrors of Mr Larraz, but whilst this has some of the usual ingredients, spot on 70s clothes, hippies and gory kills, it lacks others. A plot for a start. We are introduced to the victim/killer at the start and although the young actress tries to give the character some character, this is a one not piece with little variance. So too with others, they are introduced, they die with barely any interaction.

The usual sleazy sex is also missing and so much of this is set in a dark, deserted hotel with much creeping and chasing amidst the shadows. This didn't engage me from start to finish and although there are decent flashes it is a rather dull affair. Surprising, too, because this was made in the same year as and in between the splendid, Vampyres and Symtoms. Maybe the director just ran out of time, or interest.
