You have to be joking...
on 5 July 2014
I have to say that when this film got glowing reviews on the prime website splattered all over the cover, I was excited at another character-led film like Kill List (which was a great film) so looked forward to settling down to some good psychological and unsettling horror.
At only 70 minutes long, it seemed a good bet....
Then I watched it and quite honestly it's one of the worst films I've ever seen for a number of reasons:
a) Acting - whereas Kill List had the two leading characters very well portrayed, the acting between the characters in this film is dire - the dippy one is so dippy that you wouldn't ask him to make a cup of tea (in case he spilled it), let alone send him to kill someone. Also the 'Mr Big' criminal who sent them is so cliched as a gangster, it's cringing to watch.
b) Script - Much of the film is taken up by a completely pointless back story about a girl in a nightclub and goes on and on and on and on...yawn. When the 'action' begins and I use the term loosely, the film is on such a shoestring that they can't afford special effects and so it's all shot from outside with Dippy acting as though he's being terrorised by something but not very convincingly.
c) Ending - The ending is hilariously bad with such poor special effects and poor acting throughout.
Summary - Devil's Business?? Dog's Business more like - I'm only writing this review cause I'm gobsmacked people have given this 5 stars...
