Spike has no point!
24 June 2008 | by Pooku_75See all my reviews

With a running time of 80 minutes I suppose it's pretty damning to say that it was probably 65 minutes too long.

Judging by the audience reaction at the 'World Premiere' as part of the Edinburgh Film Festival, plenty were in agreement with me. It is never a good sign when you see people leaving the theatre early or sharing bemused looks.

It doesn't help when the marketing describes the film as "Angela Carter rewriting La Belle et la Bête as an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer".

Trust me, the artistic resemblance to any of these works is non-existent.
