Critic Reviews for Spell
Imagine 'Hollyoaks' with the gloss taken out, a dash of 'The Exorcist' put in,
It almost demands a debate about whether critics should even be allowed to pass judgement on films unless they (films and critics both) have attained a certain rudimentary benchmark of professionalism to begin with.
This incompetent reworking of The Exorcist among Leeds teenagers makes Ed Wood look like Max Ophüls. It is astonishing that it should be offered to a paying public outside of the director's hometown.
The script is appalling, the dialogue is flat, the acting is unforgivable and the horror scenes are unintentionally comic. Yes - in Carey Jones, Britain has produced its own Ed Wood.
The acting is like a Crossroads masterclass poorly served with a script that insists everybody treats demonic possession like it was a dose of the sniffles.
This Leeds-set occult mystery is made in so earnest and amateurish a style as to make the Children's Film Foundation look like Hitchcock.
