April 21, 2017
"The Void" gets louder, grosser and more stupid the further it progresses, becoming an endurance test in its final sequences.

People live, people die, monsters creep out of the shadows, but it's all a little too formulaic, cynical, and ... well, boring.

The kind of film you might get if you gave a 15-year-old horror fan access to a strobe light, some white bed sheets and a job lot of exploding prosthetic heads.
