Razz Leonard's timeless cult classic, Death by Tights, has rightfully earned its place in the pantheon of the greats, joining company with the most celebrated movies of its genre like the Blair Witch Project, Suspiria and Paranormal Activity. The first instalment of Alia Azama's popular Nylon Trilogy, is in harmony with some of the darkest gothic art house horrors which explores challenging modern day themes centred on obsession, compulsion, narcism and mutual self destruction.
In keeping with some of cinemas most pioneering film directors, Leonard's ambitious film cut of 62 minutes bravely moves away from the traditional film format of 90 minutes and yet does not disappoint as the slick screenplay has something for everyone. Neither does the art noir style of filming detract from the movie's intricate sub plots; the bold characterisation of the teenagers gives this coming of age flick gritty realism which should be applauded!
Method acting or, in fact, sign of any recognisable acting technique has been substituted by the casts natural, innate sense of simply playing themselves, all of which adds to uncontrollable moments of hilarity when you least expect it. Inspired performances from Abbie Bolton draws the audience into an impending sense of annihilation from the fiendish tights people and Lambton's vulnerability in the final scene is memorable to say the very least!
This great piece of cinema makes for compelling, edge of your seat viewing and should be in everyones top 100 films; the chafing tension alone will guarantee to overwhelm even the most ardent horror fans as 'sheer' terror constantly stalks the innocent teens. Audiences can look forward to the eagerly awaited sequel 'Death By Stockings', scheduled to premiere at both Time Square and Leicester Square in July 2020.
Please note - any IMDB member who dares to score this film with anything less than 10 points for this movie will be doomed to roam their local woodland area for an eternity in ladies....tights!
