Well, what can I say??? Simply put this is without a shadow of a doubt the worst film I have ever had the misfortune to stumble upon...bar none!!! Now bearing in mind that I approached it knowing full well that it was clearly a B-movie and thus my expectations were, I feel, appropriately tempered already knowing the film for what it was. Generally I'll forgive a B-Movie a lot, you kind of accept the unknown cast, special effects on a shoe string and a limited set/wardrobe/score combo and once you've done that there are some gems to be found (Outpost, Devils Rock) but there is simply no excuse for this level of ham fisted, poor quality tripe.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Mariani's Best!, 10 July 2012

The usually on the ball Ben Hope is made… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars A poor sequel!, 6 Mar 2012
Oh dear, oh dear!!!
When I read the first book in the series (Uprising) I found it a bit cheesy but very entertaining and was looking forward to the sequel with bated breath...then this came along!!!
The Cross is dull, slow, repetitive (it resurrects far too much from the original to the point where it appeared the author realised he'd killed off too much plot the first time around and desperately needed to think up ways to bring it back), highly predictable, clichéd and improbable (yes I know it's a novel about vampires and thus `improbable' from the off but I refer here to the actions and thought processes of certain characters through out the book rather than the premise… Read more
