Neve McIntosh, Shaun Dooley, Linzey Cocker, Trevor Hancock, Dean Andrews, Paul Opacic, Kevin Harvey, / Fiction / English
A military experiment goes horribly wrong, in this triumphant low-budget Brit horror.
Divorced mother Beth (Neve McIntosh) is trying to kick out her latest one-night stand and smooth over another row with her teenage daughter when suddenly the neighbourhood comes under siege. Suburban terrorist cell? Military misuse of power? Or something altogether more ... monstrous? Laurence Gough's horror is confident, breathlessly paced and anchored by a powerhouse performance from McIntosh.
#1/ Wednesday 24 June, 2009 / 21:56 GMTIt starts off well but becomes surprisingly cliched and pulls out some stock and unintentionally funny moments. It doesn't hold up well in the second half.
#2 / Wednesday 1 July, 2009 / 10:17 GMTI watched this film and thought is was very interesting. A great blend of horror and Thriller. Very tense and claustrophobic and brilliant performances from the two leads.
