Poor, but with it's moments
16 January 2014 | by jackstupidjackSee all my reviews

But why have such idiotic protagonists?

For people trying to sneak up on and sneakily film a swinger's party, they make more noise than an Iron Maiden concert....this Lets the whole film down really... all the pissing about in the barn before the climax destroys the gentle momentum built in the early stages of the film. Waste of a Good, if unoriginal premise, Could have been so much better. Some nice bleak locations in Winter Looks like a lot of work went into the film but when they came to actually making it, they couldn't be bothered to see it all through and just wanted to get it done and (hopefully) count the cash. A brilliant turn as a vacuous celebrity hungry slapper by the stunning Natasha Sparkes who deserves better.
