BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
I went into this film knowing nothing at all about it, literally no idea, which is not a bad thing at all - go in with an open mind. I didn't really fancy anything in particular, and I had had this saved on the TiVo box since about last July, so I thought it is probably about time... "Four young offenders and their care workers visit the remote Yorkshire village of Mortlake, which prides on keeping itself to itself. A minor incident with locals rapidly escalates into a blood-soaked, deliriously warped nightmare."
My mum watched some of this with me, and she was in two minds about it, she thought it was one of the worst things she has ever seen - but was hooked and wanted me to pause it when she went and got herself another drink. Dad popped in when one of the deaths happened, and he even sad that for a bad looking film, the effects were pretty good. I call these both a win for Inbred.
Backing up my dad in what he said, I also agree, the effects are good. They aren't badly over the top, bloody and gory, but not at all over the top. The effects are done in the way that they are just enough for gore junkies, like me, but not so much that you laugh about it as they are so bad.
I liked it all. Every death was different, and some were some of the weirdest deaths I have ever seen - I won't say, but the ones in the shows get a little bit cray cray, Cray cray in a good way though.
This has a lovely little British feel to it. It's got a cast of people who you've seen before but cannot place all of them, it's got some great British humour in it, and as I said, it's got on a budget gore, but that's not bad at all. I liked it. It won't be for everyone, but it's a fun little number - a bit weird in places, but fun.
One thing this film is though, is very stereotypical Northern. I have family up North, and I love it up there, but I feel this film seems like it is made by someone who has never ever been up North and is really going off some of the horrible rumours about there. The rumours about incest, and the higher up you go, the more inbred and caveman like the people get. None of which are true by the way.
This goes a lot off those kinds of things, but it's not offensive at all, it's part of the humour and it doesn't make them all out like that, just this one little village.
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
