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.
A bewilderingly awful horror film.
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.
A film without any drama or mystery.
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.
Full of laughably bad dialogue, tortuously constructed drama, am-dram acting and hilarious attempts at conveying terror on screen it's like a cover version of a horror movie done by some one who has never actually seen a horror movie.
