2.0 out of 5 stars F = Fail, 2 Feb. 2011
This review is from: F [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
This 2010 Brit horror thriller really needs to go to detention. There are several reviews praising it's English individualism but for me this film fails to deliver any true or real scares or anything 'horror' like and never gets out of year one / first gear. This movie falls easily into the Brit Horror category - being rather soft, and not as good as say Creep, The Decent, 24 Hours Later or Eden Lake. However, in comparison this is more of a thriller than a horror and will appeal to those not wanting any blood and guts gore.

The film is about a small group of teachers, and pupils, that are either working late or in detention become stuck in the school, which quickly has some hooded youths begin to terrorise the trapped party.

Some of the characters are good, the others one dimensional and the scenes are ill paced, gloomy and in comparison to other thrillers this is a little lightweight, even if the ideas and plot are impressively passable.

The film stars Davis Schofield (Senator Falco in Gladiator) and Eliza Bennet (Nanny McPhee and Inkheart). The director Johannes Roberts is best known for his mini made for mobile series 'When Evil Calls (2006).
