The Haunted Airman Reviews
Is it worth watching for that? Probably not. Nothing happens and it makes no sense. The cast do deliver characters that feel real solely using physical expression and a handful of lines each (there's about the same amount of dialogue as there is plot, which is to say, almost none), so they are to be commended. Robert Pattinson is also stunning to look at in general (and the camera is rarely off him), so if you're just coming to oogle, you won't be disappointed.
Acting and atmosphere = 5/5 Absolutely everything else 0/5
Toby Jugg is troubled. He is paralyzed by night terrors, fear, paranoia, and a severe spinal injury. If in fact Aracnophobia was the scariest film of all time you will get the creeps from the spider nest of a hospital in which our mental mama's boy resides. Filmed and pasted into this movie from your very own back yard.
The film isn't a complete train wreck, not a train in sight actually. There isn't much of anything to see or talk about. Pattinson is actually quite good when he isn't smoking and keeping things to himself. His portrayl of claustrophobia in wide open spaces is a site to be hold even if the crippling scenes are few and far in between this 80 minute snooze fest.
Why is Toby haunted? That's advertised every 2 minutes from beginning to end. Why should anyone care? Well they say real horror is not knowing right?
according to the internet, The Book in which this viewing is based titled "The Haunting of Toby Jugg" is known for its contraversal lunacy. There in lies the Real Horror, it's out of print. AHHHHHH!
It doesn't completely work, but the film kept me intrigued throughout with its story. Interesting but flawed.
