Storyline

A gruesome homage to the cult Amicus anthology Asylum, Cradle of Fear unfolds four screamplays all linked by the unspeakable need of an incarcerated child killer to wreak vengeance on those responsible for his imprisonment. Helped by deranged angel Dani Filth, who leaves a trail of charnel house death in his crimson wake, the cannibal convict forces two Goth vamps to endure a one night stand from hell, two tough female robbers to see through each other, an obscenely rich coke-head to chop up more than a few lines and an internet surfer to descend into madness when he uncovers the ultimate web depravity. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Detective Neilson: You don't need to say it Sir. Four murders in one week and now solid lead is a piss poor show I know, but that new computer system's a load of old wank, with all due respect. For every piece of crap we type in we get a load more bollocks back.
Chief Inspector Roper: That's not what I wanted to talk about Pete. I've had a worrying call from Joe, the photographer. Something about you touching the dead bodies...
Detective Neilson: Yes Sir, it's just something I have to do.
Chief Inspector Roper: Okay. Any particular reason?
Detective Neilson: To make sure they really are dead.
Chief Inspector Roper: ...

a well thought out film, with poor effects
12 October 2004 | by 00boonjSee all my reviews

I think for your own true opinions of this film you should ignore the comments and make your own verdict by actually going to watch it. In my opinion I think that it is a clever story line, being a fan of cradle of filth I like the soundtrack and the actor (the man.

Instead of ordinary horror films, cradle of fear has 4 different stories all linked by one theme, so f you don't like a part of it, there is a lot more in the film. I think some o the scenes are far-fetched but overall it's a film for someone who has an imagination

I think the film was designed for young horror fans and overall it delivers: bring you a sickening fear. fans of horror, gore and Danni filth will not be . disappointed so watch it and make up your own mind!
