FRIGHTFEST DVD REVIEWS! ESTRANGED AND MORE...

21:25:00

Hey Lovelies, 

As someone who follows the Frightfest events quite a lot, as I am a big horror film fan, I was super happy to hear that the films were being released on DVD from April until the end of May lovelies and there so I was lucky enough to be asked to review some of them. 

I didn’t know which one to start with but as soon as I did I ended up binge-watching them all to compare each of them. Starting with…

Estranged Review:

Due out on the 11th April, the film follows January; a wheelchair bound lady, who has been left affected by the car accident she was involved in. The film is more of a thriller than a truly horrible gore fest, but it is intense and leaves you on the edge of your seat right up until the last moment. 

The script and directing has been cleverly placed together to make an interesting watch that has you second guessing everyone in the film and not trusting anymore. Especially the boyfriend figure. 

This is one to watch with friends, as you will be sat there needing someone to talk to as the twist and turns happen, as you will definitely be shouting at the TV over it. 

There so I am giving it…

5 Stars

Afterdeath Review: 

Out on the 18th April, the film features a group of five as they try to find out where they came from and who they are after being washed up on the beach. A bit like the classic show ‘Lost’, the film hooks audiences in in the same way that the previous film does, because you are left wanting to know who they truly are. 

There are no clues and every one is a figure you don’t trust or know whether to trust when you are watching them. Even the nicest of characters can seem evil. 

For a first step into feature film making, the directors Gez Medinger and Robin Schmidt have provided audiences with a tense and game changing film for not only the horror genre but also the thriller one with their work. 

And because of this I am giving it…

5 Stars

The Sand Review: 

A bit like the previous film, the feature shows a group of students as they wake up on the beach after their graduation. There earlier morning wake up call isn’t their mums though, it is in fact an alien who is looking to eat them. 

While the film is gripping and you do feel the sense of the chase, it lacks hooking you in in the way the others do and becomes a bit to over the top at times as the alien figure is not very believable. 

There so I am giving it…

3 Stars

Night of the Living Deb Review:

You know those days where you wake up and realise that the night before was a huge mistake? Well the creators of ‘Night of the Living Deb’ have made a film that will make you want to stay single and stay inside, as they show a one night stand go horribly wrong. 

The film is a strong and no intentionally funny piece that shows one women being forced into a zombie apocalypse as she is made to leave the house of the person she spent the night with. 

It is trying to make a dark piece, but instead becomes a bit more light hearted film that gives horror fans a look back at classics such as ‘Scream’. As well as providing a killer soundtrack! 

There so I am giving it…
