British horror short that's too derivative
1 May 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

CANNIBALS AND CARPET FITTERS is a British horror comedy short that I somewhat bizarrely saw playing on the local TV channel, Notts TV. It's very much a waste of time, a film that heavily copies the likes of previous British horror fare (in particular THE COTTAGE) without any style or look of its own.

The story is about a couple of carpet fitters who turn up at a remote old house to do a job for an old lady. Unbeknownst to them, she hides a dark secret in her cellar, and violent action ensues. Sadly, the whole thing is derivative in look, feel, and tone, and the amateurish quality of the acting doesn't help much better.

I always appreciate and support the work of low budget filmmakers, but if director James Bushe wants to turn this into a feature-length production then he really needs to find his own material and create something fresh and unique instead of merely copying what's come before. As a final note, the running time of CANNIBALS AND CARPET FITTERS is so short that it's padded out at the end with dumb outtake footage that really should have been deleted from the camera.
