3.0 out of 5 stars THEY ARE ALL PREY 16 May 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The film opens with author Daniel Shergold (Dan Richardson) at a promo for his latest book, "Dark Corners" written about the supernatural. The movie is put together running present and past events back and forth, as well as showing us a subplot. This is deliberately done to create a confusion that will be shortly experienced by Daniel's mind.

This scene follows a home break-in where Daniel's wife (Niki Felstead) is killed and our author is confined to a wheel chair. A friend of Dan's introduces him to an odd fan of his work, Infurnari (Giles Alderson). He promises Dan he can find the killers and get revenge, but it will cost him the life that he had. With nothing to lose, Daniel agrees and is unknowingly transformed into something akin to vampire.

The film was good enough to hold my interest, a break-in/revenge film with a twist. The scenes lacked intensity to prevent it from being a gory slasher, but at the same time lacked the quality drama to carry it. A worthy rental, but not a keeper for my collection.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Niki Felstead)

5.0 out of 5 stars Future cult classic 13 July 2012
Format:DVD
Saw this the other night on it's cinema tour of the UK. Excellent new British film, incredible writing and direction from Oliver S Milburn. Can't wait to see it again...if you're a fan of the horror/revenge genre or you're after vampires with an original twist, this film will not disappoint.

1.0 out of 5 stars It will drain your soul of the will to live 6 April 2014
By Si
Format:DVD
Nice to see some of the crew logging in to give their 5* reviews but I feel that I, as an impartial viewer, should attempt to rectify the overall 4* rating by offering my honest opinion. This film is atrocious in the extreme. It has no redeeming factors whatsoever. Never in my misspent decades of film oggling have I witnessed such appalling acting, slapdash direction and grim production values or if I have I don't remember when it was. It's so bad that even as a parody of a horror movie it would overshoot humour and plunge the viewer back into whatever individual emotions arise from viewing a genuine travesty of film-craft. I've seen hundreds of low budget films, some badly acted, some badly directed, some both (not to this extent, admittedly) but in most cases there was some redeeming factor - a decent script, an original concept, a twist in the plot, an interesting atmosphere, a memorable set piece. Here we have nothing, not even a hint of a glimpse of any one of these things. It is a movie entirely without merit and as such I bury it mentally in an unmarked grave and hope that it never again sees the Harsh Light of Day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting horror debut. 29 Mar 2013
Format:DVD
First time feature director Oliver S. Milburn's film begins unpromisingly and looks like another ordeal horror with masked home invaders attacking a couple. It takes a more interesting turn when the disabled widower from the attack (Dan Richardson) is offered a chance at revenge from a mysterious stranger, Infunari (Giles Anderson). While no means perfect it works well within the limitations of its obvious low budget. Richardson's performance is fine as a man both coming to terms with his disability and then the chance of supernatural revenge. There's a whiff of Clive Barker in the suggestion of the existence of Infunari's hidden other-world and of the beings that he belongs to. Neither as good or as poor as other reviews here might suggest, this engaging debut didn't outstay its welcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dream Debut 9 Oct 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For any aspiring filmmakers out there this is one to watch!

This film was created by many first-timers and punches well above its weight. As well as the movie itself there are a wealth of DVD Extras that talk through the 'how it was made' and could form guidelines as to how you could do it yourself!

A definite winner for the British Film Industry!

5.0 out of 5 stars Straw Dogs With Fangs 11 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
This film is a great British Indie feature by first time writer/director Oliver S.Milburn.

This guy obviously loves his horror films, and it shows in the structure and delivery of the story.

Over the last few years we seem to have been inundated with camped up vampire films, but for a change, this is a properly seedy, and dirty streetwise film about hurt, loss & revenge, it just happens to have vampire qualities/traits in it, but the more basic 'meaning' of vampire...not the long toothed, neck biting pretty boys of late! Think more '30 Days of Night' than 'Twilight', and the films early scenes of the brutal home invasion storyline keeps the truth of the real world enough to make the vampirism element acceptable.

So I wouldn't say it's a typical film of that genre by any means....and it's really nice to have this change.

The story is great, and really keeps the viewer invested in the characters throughout. The whole cast is brilliant, no week spots to mention, and the story, considering it's vampire content, is really grounded in the reality of human life today, so it makes it very believable.

A superb watch, and I am really looking forward to getting hold of the DVD after it's cinema release last week in California.(Which is where it got it's 'Staw Dogs With Fangs' critique from the film press at the premiere)

I'm extremely glad there are still young & ambitious British film makers out there churning out this kind of quality film...thanks Harsh Light Of Day...I will be following the cast & crew careers with a watchful anticipation of future projects.
