    Junkie s ex boyfriend s flat and from this point on there is the most marvellous unrestrained carnage People are shot stabbed beaten to death limbs are severed and all variety of unlikely weapons are used I think it was after the beautifully random arm severing that I decided I really loved this film The plot such as it is wanders around a little in places but with such wonderful set pieces that you never mind for a moment It is frequently laugh out loud funny occasionally wincingly violent and consistently entertaining in a frankly insanely pleasing way Some scenes won spontaneous applause from the audience and the cast are obviously loving every minute of it The relationships and interaction between the mis matched main characters are a delight and it s very pleasing that for all their arguing and fighting you know they are all really good friends They repair each others awful injuries soothe each others traumas and bond over the most ridiculously dreadful events that you can imagine Bizarre wild and utterly mad this was a stand out film for me I really hope it gets the distribution and cult status that it deserves as the Soska sisters can certainly teach a lot of more successful film makers a thing or two about how to entertain an audience Line Break By Sarah Jane Vespertine Sarah Jane Vespertine is a writer occasional poet and freelance thinker You can follow her on Twitter at twitter com essers Share Grimm Up North 2010 Dead Hooker In A Trunk Tags Dead Hooker In A Trunk Grimm Up North 2010 Horror Movies Soska Sisters Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our first webcomic Tags Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Archives

  • Grimm Up North 2010: The Last Man On Earth & Outcast | Shiny Shelf
    The second film of the evening was a new British film Outcast starring James Nesbitt and Karen Gillan although in a more minor role than her headline status might imply This was a very impressive debut feature and was very clear about its urban fairytale setting from the start The cast script and setting were all excellent James Nesbitt being marvelously feral from his first moments and the grey towerblocks making a very nice substitute for the woods this story would have been set in once upon a time The story takes place in the council estates of Edinburgh a side of the city not often seen on screen and revolves around the romance between two teenagers Petronella and Fergal They are both outcasts from the society they live in Petronella being Romanian gypsy and Fergal being Irish living with and hidden by his witchcraft practicing mother From the start it s clear that a monster is stalking the dark passages of the estate but is it Cathal the animalistic Irish hunter or Fergal whose mysterious heritage his mother conceals from the world by dark magic When we first see Cathal played by James Nesbitt and his companion Liam arrive in the city they meet with the local Laird who gives them the freedom to follow their quest with the words You will use these powers to hunt down and kill the boy no others There are no bones made about whether the magic is real or the beast a metaphor We are straight away immersed in another version of our world steeped in the reality of ancient Celtic myth The crossover of Irish and Scots works beautifully although I have to admit as an English viewer I had to occasionally pay attention to the depth of accents on show There are some lovely dark touches in Outcast I especially like the fate of the overly bossy housing officer and this is definitely a film worth looking out for Hopefully it will get the cinematic release it deserves Line Break By Sarah Jane Vespertine Sarah Jane Vespertine is a writer occasional poet and freelance thinker You can follow her on Twitter at twitter com essers Share Day 1 report from grimmfest by essers Tags Grimm Up North 2010 Horror James Nesbitt Karen Gillan Movies Outcast The Last Man On Earth Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth

    porridge The sloth like editing means this doesn t have quite the rapier wit that that description suggests The cameos are no less vexing Just about every part is played by an actor you like and every one them gives the least amusing performance of their career Christopher Lee pops up as a cadaver to be and croaks without uttering a word Paul Whitehouse does a turn in which he sings a bit and falls down some stairs Ronnie Corbett and Reece Sheersmith ponce about in uniform Not a man among them does anything worthy of a giggle Just when you re starting to think that while it s not going to make you laugh it isn t actually painful it becomes excruciating In what seems to be an attempt to justify the idea that a true tale of mass murder is ripe for comic re telling Landis chucks in a bizarre denouement of noble self sacrifice and tries to claim that a financially motivated murder spree was actually all about love It certainly wasn t historically the script can t sell this idea in the film either If you were going to make a film about serial killers you d either want to make it clear that the murders themselves were no laughing matter or you d want to make the violence so funny that the film stops feeling like live action and enters the realm of the Tom and Jerry cartoon Burke and Hare doesn t do either and instead we get two hours of unspeakably unfunny slapstick It s like watching The Three Stooges make a snuff film And then just when you think it can t get any worse over the end credits they play the Proclaimers Please somebody kill me Line Break By Jonn Elledge Share Burke and Hare Tags Burke and Hare Comedy Horror John Landis Movies Simon Pegg Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our first webcomic Tags Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant
