Superb british horror.,
This review is from: Cradle Of Fear  [DVD] (DVD)
I agree with Jonathan Ross on this one, Alex Chandon is defiently the future of horror. Hostel was a little bit boring but Cradle of Fear was far from that. Sure, the effects are not great but people have to remmember that this is not a big-budget horror film. Its budget is micro, but it makes up with some of the best ideas in horror history. The Sick Room is awesome and if you've seen the movie you'll know why I think that. Hollywood would never have come up with that idea.
I recomend this film to anyone who enjoys over the top violent horror movies. Cradle has about 22 gory kills and has enough blood to fill a swimming pool. The ideas are wicked and the music is superb. The quality is what really puts people against this film but to be honest, I think the quality is great. It looks a little like camcorder work but you get used to it (unless you're really picky) I'm sure you can forgive it. I wont hate a film for just a few little problems. The movie takes 2 hours exactly but does not get boring at all. Dani Filth is cool and plays his role very well. This feels like one of those films that wont be around for long. I find it hard to believe that the BBFC passed this fully uncut.
If you want a film which is extremly violent, has sick and cool ideas, has great music and is very entertaining to watch then I reccomend Cradle of Fear. If you're sick of Hollywood then Cradle will satisfy your horror hunger.
