1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Toilet 2 April 2011
I expected it to be crap, easy watching, but this was irritating, never got to the end, too annoying.

Probably the most annoying thing is it is split into 'parts', with the same sample of music playing each time every 10 minutes or so, makes no sense to me, and the music choice is really annoying.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fangs ain't what they used to be 17 Mar 2010
Not counting documentaries such as "The World Of Hammer" and "Flesh And Blood - The Hammer Heritage Of Horror", this is the first output to bear the famous name of Hammer since "The Hammer House Of Mystery And Suspense" TV series in 1984. So now, after many years of speculation, Hammer are finally back in business.

"Beyond The Rave", a modern vampire tale, is actually a collaboration between Hammer Film Productions and Pure Grass Films. It was originally shown on the networking website MySpace as a 20 part serial and now all the episodes have been put together on a limited special edition DVD to form a complete movie. So is it any good?

Unfortunately, I am sorry to say that the answer is NO. In fact it's absolutely terrible. I can't believe that Hammer fans have had to wait so long for this rubbish.

For a start, the script is poor. There are no likeable, sympathetic characters in this story. Most of the human characters are either violent, obnoxious thugs or drugged-up losers. Even the film's "hero", Ed, is a foul-mouthed, drug-taking, immoral son of a bitch who gets drunk with the lads and cheats on his girlfriend (who is no angel herself) by sleeping with a prostitute. I'm not sure whether it was a deliberate ploy by the film makers to make the human characters even more repellent than the vampires but they certainly have achieved this. The problem is that whenever any of the humans suffered a grisly death at the hands (and teeth, of course) of the vampires, I didn't really care and I found myself cheering for the vampires. The dialogue is awful and packed with crude obscenities. There is barely a single line of dialogue that does not contain words beginning with "F" or "C". Blimey, poor old Peter Cushing must be turning in his grave!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hammer Horror Returns 26 May 2008
Many years have passed since the legendary 'Hammer Films' last introduced us to a new Horror picture. That was in the guise of 'To The Devil A Daughter' in 1976 and many fans have been hopeful for a comback for many years. After numerous false starts, we finally have a new movie to watch in 2008's 'Beyond The Rave'. It is worth noting that the dvd version of the movie is not only cut differently but is also reasonably longer than the current My Space episodic download version. This longer dvd version includes the appearances of various great character actors who's roles were cut from the My Space version such as Mark Wingett (The Bill), Ingrid Pitt (The Wicker Man) and Steve Sweeney (Lock Stock). Although the dvd has not yet been released, I had the good fortune to see the longer version in a rare cinema showing. It is a more pleasurable experience to watch the film as a whole and in this extended cut. There is a really nice pacing throughout the film, action handled very well by newcomer director Matthias Hoene and too many well executed performances to mention. Don't get me wrong, the film is no classic, but if you're after a great nights entertainment via some true craftsmen and to join in the celebration of the return of a British Institution then look no further.

This film is divided up into more than a dozen 'episodes'. It's free on YouTube.

And it's not even worth that!

As a massive Hammer Horror fan i was ecstatic to find out they had been bought and were starting production on new films.
I missed Beyond the Rave when it was on My Space becuase i knew nothing about it, i have since watched it , it is definetly Hammer in the 21st Century, in the respect that it is not set in an authentic Victorian era or predecessing era before that as many Hammer Horror fans would have liked to see.
Saying this the 20 short episodes put together made an enjoyably Vampire flick in the modern era, it was nothing brilliant , however it wasnt as bad as some of the reviews wish you to think, if you are comparing it to older Hammer films like Frankenstein and Dracula, then obviously it fails in comparision, but if you are judging it on the merit of what it is then it is a nice fresh new piece of filmography.
It would be nice to see Hammer making some period horror again, with authentic scenery - as a Hammer Horror film fan you will already know they made films cheaply but effectively in the past and could do the same again, i think this is what we expect from Hammer and would definetly like to see again, if you remember though Hammer always moved with the times, when in the seventies when Martial Arts became all the rage they bought you The Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires - Peter Cushing against Dracula and Martial Arts Vampires, and in the eighties they moved into Television with the brilliant Hammer House of Horror, and Mystery and Suspense.
I think the way forward would be for Hammer to do a mix of films to suit all fans , the modern day ones and the authentic Horror, i belive they could do a really good Zombie film as i think they only did one when originally in production Plague of the Zombies.
