My favourite from Fright Fest 2020
28 October 2020 | by MrsHoHoHorrorSee all my reviews

One of two really impressive debut films I watched at FrightFest (the other was Caveat). This isn't so much a horror film as it is a weird gangster movie. The antithesis of the typical British gangster film this is stark, surreal and the script is sharp as a razor. Beautiful to look at and the sound, with a psychedelic rock score in places, is astounding. Like if Reservoir Dogs had been made by Nicolas Roeg.
