3.0 out of 5 stars South London `Teen' Suicide Pact Backfires Shock!, 31 Mar 2012
This review is from: Demons Never Die [DVD] (DVD)
A group of `virtual' friends, have one of their friends commit suicide, she is depressed after having an abortion. This was Amber played by `singer' Tulisa Contostavalos - only on screen a couple of minutes though. The others link up in a web cam chat and quite quickly come to the conclusion that they should all commit suicide as life is a load of cack and ergo not worth living. The not so charismatic Kenny (played by Jason Maza, who I really like, but seriously we can see your bald spot so playing a teenager was one your agent should have turned down) says it all has to be at the same time. This is a date of a party they are all to attend. In order to gain world wide notoriety, he enlists the aid of a hapless journo wannabe to film, mostly him, in the run up to the big show.

Enter two of London's seemingly most inept cops, who warn of copy cat suicides and that they are there for them. Despite a healthy mistrust of `the feds' they still get invited to the party- yeah right.

Then we get to find out why they are all so keen on meeting God early, one has mother murder issues, one is fat, one bulimic, one father issues, one an hereditary mental mum and one is not only black but also fancies....men! So death it is then, but plucky Archie (Robert Sheehan of `Killing Bono' fame where he sadly, failed to live up to the promise in the title) has a soft spot for head case potential candidate Jasmine (Jennie Jacques). As the big day gets closer they all start to find reasons to live, but just as they change their minds, someone has already decided to give them a hand.

So is it any good? Well I actually really liked it as a casual entertainer, I did not find it very `horrific', except some of the musical score put my teeth on edge, all urban stuff that I am sure the homies would like, but not scary. We are left to keep guessing what the motive of the killer is let alone who they might be. There is also a singular lack of anyone being able to turn on a light switch the moment it gets even slightly dark, which is always a bit tedious, horror can be well lit you know.

The acting is all well above board, the locations aint bad and the music is ok (begrudgingly) but the script is a bit questionable, but if you want a Brit London teen horroresque then this is quite good to while away an hour and a half, but you will definitely not want to see again. The ending may not be to everyones liking, but all films have to end somewhere, even if it is Badscriptsville,despite that this is nearly 4 stars for effort alone. Butif this floats your boat then check out `Tormented' Tormented [DVD]which also has a couple of gags, I mean laughs.
