  • Tunley confirms his mastery of macabre moods here. Now he needs a bigger budget and a broader canvas.

    Aug 11, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Like the oft-referenced Möbius strip, lots of empty surface, precious little feeling.

    Aug 4, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The title suggests an orgy of the undead loaded with jump scares, but this is a more restrained and more disturbing proposition. The monster here is metaphorical: part depression, part manic obsession.

  • Initially interesting but heartsinkingly pointless, this brooding Brit indie takes us on a journey to nowhere.

  • British writer-helmer Gareth Tunley makes an auspicious debut with this blend of Lynchian psychodrama with low-budget cop mystery.

    "l'd like to run one last sim. This time, in the shape of a Möbius strip, inverted, please." If you're watching this and feel like you missed something, don't worry, that's just The Ghoul.
