The number of the beast?
An apparent victim of a hit and run, a mysterious stranger is held at a remote police station and starts to take over the emotional state of staff and inmates alike.
It’s not a new premise, something which is being held against Brian O’Malley’s film like it’s a crime, but the execution, the technical guile, and atmospheric touches brought to the piece, mark this out as a horror film of some merit. Boosted by having the great Liam Cunningham in the lead role, it’s a film that shocks and awes with each passing chapter. It revels in the bloody aspects that unfold, positioning the vile nature that some human’s are prone to right at the forefront, and with bloody impact.
Piers McGrail’s cinematography is superb, the bold and beautiful shine of the blues and golden browns mingle disconcertingly with the down and dirty feel of the police cells, the latter of which appropriately marry up with the characters on show. Steve Lynch’s score is a treat, a real nerve bothering piece of work, gnawing away at the senses in the same way that Cunningham’s character tugs away at the emotional conditions of his prey. It’s a film of many pleasures for the so inclined, it does get away from itself a little at the end, asking a little too much of the viewer, but it doesn’t kill the pic and this is very much a horror necklace worth wearing on a night out. 7/10
A singular sort of horror, both modern and classical, that came as a very pleasant surprise. Adroit work from director Brian O’Malley’s feature-length debut, works primarily on the strength of the performances, each and every single member of this small cast shines.
_Final rating:★★★½ – I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._
I have seen things that would make the angels weep. And, they do weep… A stylish and entertaining film… Rewatchability: Very High Blu-ray: Excellent A:10 V:10
Wow, I REALLY liked this film! I could tell Immediately that I liked the feel of it. The first several shots alone are to die for. Seriously, they were stunning and beautiful. I instantly liked the soundtrack, the cinematography, and the tone that the director set for the film. I could tell right away that this was my kind of movie. Even the lighting of the main street was exquisite and reminded me a LOT of the way Bava would light his sets with otherworldly blues and reds, setting the perfect tone for this Good vs. Evil ‘Morality’ tale. Nicely done…
I have always liked religiously themed Horror films. I really dig the Prophetic or Biblically based stuff (movies like ‘THE PROPHECY’ or ‘THE SEVENTH SIGN’, for example) Although this film isn’t as overtly religious as those, it is based upon similar themes. What I felt made this movie particularly intriguing was that it didn’t treat the Good vs. Evil theme in the usual way that a lot of these types of films do, but it added more dimension and complexity in portraying ‘Evil’ more from the angle of Retribution or Punishment, which is a little different.
This movie had PRECISELY just the right tone that I really like with Horror films. It was stylized, but with just the right balance to give it an entertaining ‘Punch’ and yet, not so much (or so stupidly self-conscious) as to overdo it and ruin it, as happens often in many of today’s Horror films. I am not familiar with this director, but I REALLY loved his approach to the material. He kept a good, tense edge on the proceedings, but allowed himself nice touches of style here and there. There were a few really effective jump scares too.
Just one thing… And this is just MY personal preference. But, what the HELL is the point of showing extended scenes of people brutally beating on others. Why…? It’s mindless with absolutely NO entertainment value. It’s not creative or clever in any way. Are we supposed to ‘Get Off’ on it…? In my lowly and wretched opinion, it’s just pure, stupid brutality. BUT… other than FFing through just a few of these pointless and repetitive scenes, I truly found the film overall to be done very well and the acting was quite good. Just for my taste, I felt the violence was a little too much. To me, the story and atmosphere were strong enough not to needlessly rub our faces in the extreme violence so much. I think that so much of it begins to detract from the true strength of the film, which is NOT ‘Torture Porn’, but a strong, atmospheric Morality tale.
If you like your Horror films with a slight fanciful touch or based on religious themes, or more basically in this case a kind of Good vs. Evil morality tale, and you like a director who adds a REALLY nice artistic tonal style to the story, then I think you might find this clever and well written Horror film quite entertaining…
Let us prey, searching for a new film to rent I came across this film. From start to finish this film takes you on a psychological roller coaster ride. Directed beautifully by Brian O’Malley this takes the story of a stranger in town, but I think this to be certainly Pollyanna Mcintosh’s film. Her character was strong but as an actress she has really good screen presence, I will definitely have to check out more of her work’s from the U.K. Liam Cunningham also acted great, the stranger but so much more. Liam’s character from what I can gather is a fallen angel, an outcast but with powers we cannot conceive. On her first night in a new precinct you see the other players in this coming together one by one. Liam’s character is there to collect the souls of the wicked knowing of the atrocities they have all committed, except for Rachel, She is a survivor of unspeakable horror, and now she will join with Cunningham’s character to fight sinners. This film has a mix of religion, which is good. Douglas Russel’s character is lights out, being the Sgt. Of the precinct but having committed brutal act himself it sets off the end for the film, great job Douglas. The story which was written, great. The acting was superb. Directing was also on point. This is definitely recommended,enjoy.
