Absolutely Awful Film,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Before Dawn [DVD] (DVD)
I was tricked into buying this so-called "horror" film by some of the positive feedback on this site and other websites too. I watched it for about an hour and that was all I could take of it, which is when I turned it off. The main star of the film is Dominic Brunt, who a lot of people will know plays Paddy in Emmerdale. His real-life wife plays his on-screen wife in this film. All I saw for the first hour was a drama about a couple who couldn't seem to get on and who had serious issues. No couple in reality would go and spend time on their own in a country cottage, if they didn't get along with each other, so that was unrealistic for one thing. My main problem, though, is this is marketed as a zombie film and the cover of the DVD made me expect a film on the scale of Dawn Of The Dead or its' like. I was let down with that too, because the film I saw just wasn't like that at all. I feel conned and ripped off and I blame Metrodome for their very misleading DVD cover. I also feel misled by the people who have given this film five stars. I think they should have their medication changed. I would give this film less than one star, if I could, because it was drab, slow and very, very boring. One star from me, because this film is utter crap and I feel as though I have wasted my money on it. It is clear now why this poor excuse for a film is so cheap....
