Low budget film making at its level best.
26 August 2019 | by edwardstevens5See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to catch a screening of this at Frightfest this year in London. While it wasn't what I was expecting in terms of what I imagined a festival of that name would deliver, I was very glad to have seen it. Right from the beginning we're given an interesting protagonist (Lou) to follow and shortly after an equally deep and complex supporting character named Val. Both actors do a stellar job of bringing them both to life and are well supported by the rest of the cast. The story itself is an original and interesting one and the director masterfully brings us into the world of the film with some excellent choices in terms of how the story is told. The films dark comedic aspects along with just the right character development and intrigue made this a very enjoyable watch. It doesn't look like it was made with a ton of money and one can see where the corners were cut but it only adds to the brilliance, in my view. The script is tight and does only what it needs to do and never at any point was I bored or felt like I was being hit over the head with the point. It has a very interesting theme (which I won't spoil) that actually speaks for itself with very strong attention to detail, top performances and slick direction. If you appreciate low budget independent films then you'll have no reason for enjoying this one. Quite simply a great piece of work.
