Great second feature film outing
5 March 2016 | by benschiehallSee all my reviews

If you saw John Williams' first outing you will have seen his potential but been frustrated by quality issues, but it was made on a micro budget of £500.

His second outing is his coming of age: lessons learned and what a steep learning curve it was. The budget for this film was tiny (£15-20,000 depending on your sources) but it didn't show at all. The production values, intermittent animation, great score, cohesive plot, breath-taking scenery and laugh out loud script ... and really, I hardly ever laugh out loud ... all combine to make this a great film.

The lead characters, naïve and fairly simple homespun brothers, are instantly likable as they set off for an adventure in Earth's last two weeks before its destruction ... heading north from Stoke-on-Trent they meet some girls, some vampires and some vampire slayers and ......

There are great performances from the supporting cast too with a fresh Stoke-on-Trent humour that allows you to have sympathy for the characters that is so often missing from obnoxious Hollywood characterisations.

The special effects were not over-cooked and the film is better for it. Some violence but no over-use of gore, this was gimmick free and strong enough in all departments to achieve a resounding success.

This is highly recommended and I can't wait to see what's next from Mr Williams.
