Storyline

Cowen Rosewell lives with a small group of old friends in a scruffy flat in a small English town. Like many teens leaving school in 2014, there are few prospects or opportunities for people like Cowen so he has enrolled on a BTEC media course as a way of passing the time. His first assignment is to record everything during a week of his life. At first Cowen dismisses the random acts of violence he witnesses as the business as usual in a small English town. However, when one of his best friends is savagely attacked by a stranger, and in defending her they kill her assailant, the inexplicably serious nature of the dead assailant's injuries alert them to a more disturbing reality. As events escalate, Cowen and his friends discover that the town has come under a mysterious malign influence which is somehow controlling organized gangs who are rounding people up and taking them to a nearby factory. The friends hide, hoping to escape, but their sanctuary is discovered and overrun. Finally ...

Trivia

Filming in the flat was spread across four days - unfortunately for the team it was the hottest week on record in the UK. Fans had to be brought in during shoot breaks when the windows were blacked out. See more »

Remember to bring a quilt and a pillow...
8 July 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I stumbled upon "Hungerford" on Netflix. I had never heard about the movie prior to finding it here, and nor did I know what it was about. I found it under the horror section, and thus I decided to give it a chance.

I shouldn't have.

Boy, this was a massive waste of time and effort. I managed to endure a staggering 45 minutes of the ordeal that is "Hungerford" before I gave up from several reasons.

First of all, the movie was just blatantly and downright boring. There was nothing interesting in it for me, so my interest was quickly waning.

Secondly, it is a handheld video camera recorded movie, one of those "documentary"-like movies. You know, the type of movie you could make yourself with your own digital video camera. That particular type of movie never appealed to me, because I want to watch a movie with a proper production value and a certain level of quality to it, not something I myself could go and make with my friends.

Thirdly, the storyline was just boring and uneventful, and it didn't really help that the characters were essentially one and the same. You didn't know where one character ended and the other began. Which meant that you don't care about them in any way.

And what was up with the oversized bugs that was controlling people? Interesting? Well, perhaps. I will give them that much. But was it something that helped to improve on the movie? Hardly so.

I have no intention of returning to watch the rest of "Hungerford" because it just had nothing to offer me in any way.
