Trivia

The film's trailer was screened ahead of a screening of Katharine Isabelle's cult horror hit Ginger Snaps (2000) on April 18, 2015 in Glasgow. This was to advertise the film with plans of an exclusive one of screening in the summer of 2015 through Faith In Film, to be held at the Grosvenor Cinema in Glasgow. See more »

Crazy Credits

The end credits are in reverse order as well as scrolling from the top of the screen down rather than up from the bottom of the screen. For example, The word "Cast" appears at the bottom of the cast list and above it are the names of the two biggest stars, Katherine Isabelle and Christopher Lloyd, with the rest of the cast listed above them.

A surprisingly good little thriller
6 July 2015 | by jtindahouseSee all my reviews

Two thing's come to mind with the movie '88'. Quentin Tarantino and 'Memento'. Director April Mullen has done her best to show us what it would have been like if Tarantino had made 'Memento', instead of Christopher Nolan. The result? Not all that bad. The film doesn't reach the intellectual capacities of 'Memento', but focuses more on the style. And while it doesn't come off in every scene, the overall result is pretty good.

The interweaving time lines are handled well. Thing's can get very confusing in these types of films but Mullen does a good job of keeping things easy enough to follow along with. Katharine Isabelle was excellent in the lead role, particularly in the flashback storyline. The rest of the cast were admittedly not great (Ironside and Lloyd were passable) but that is forgivable in a low-budget film like this. While the film never reaches anywhere near the potential a Tarantino or Nolan is capable of, it still isn't half bad. Worth giving a chance.
