This review is from: Salvage [DVD] (DVD)
This British horror, filmed on the set of Brookside Close, may be low on budget, but its high on tension, as the story follows a mothers frantic attempts to rescue her estranged daughter from the house across the street once the housing estate they are on becomes the setting for a deadly game of cat and mouse between a small group of soldiers and something far more horrible than Sinbad's underpants, an escapee from a top secret military experiment.
It makes very good use of its locations, as the housing estate becomes a dark, claustrophobic hunting ground for the creature on the loose. Beth, the mother, is an interesting character, who finds hidden strengths in adversity. She is reluctantly aided by her lover Keiran, who also digs deep to find his courage. Neve McIntosh and Shaun Dooley are both very good in these roles. Despite its short running time, the film can meander at times, but it is punctuated by scenes of great tension. All in all another very fine addition to the modern British horror renaissance.
