The film is based on the script of cult horror film maker Dario Argento’s 1977 film of the same name, but with a rather different take on the idea.
This is a very British black comedy, which more than makes up for its lack of a big budget with a deft script and direction and quality actors playing roles that are off beat and original.
Peter Jackson’s documentary about the men who fought in World War I is a triumph on several levels.
Actor Paul Dano makes a very creditable debut here as a director. He also co-wrote the screenplay with life partner Zoe Kazan.
Produced by J.J. Abrams, the creator of hit television series Lost and the man behind the “when they were young” Star Trek and the latest Star Wars films, this is a promising idea which combines two genres – the war movie and the horror film.
Disappointing! The film is really a road movie in which a father and son attempt to bond together. Jeremy Irons plays the father, Atticus and Jack Huston is his son, Adam. The main difficulty is that Atticus is not a nice man!
