Like 'Goodnight Mommy' it's not perfect but it's certainly very absorbing, and there's just a darker tone than you'd get with a more sanitised, 'Hollywood' take on the same kind of stuff, even these days. Bit overlong maybe, but definitely worth checking. You're probably already aware that a good looking rip exists on YT. I know it's a newish release, but in the absence of any other obvious means of viewing beyond an expensive import... I really do think that whoever's responsible the the distribution of this film hasn't done it any favours.

Thanks for the heads up I downloaded it from a streaming site along with a Keira Knightly film Silent Night.

From the best Spiderman movie to the worst , it's just a little too silly at times and we probably had one too many villains for one movie, maybe would of been better too leave Venom too next movie. Watched the directors cut which is a little shorter, so long since I've seen the film don't know if this version makes any difference, probably not as it still has Peter strutting around like a demented emo. Venom was just terrible especially when you compare him to Tom Hardy's version

All 3 of the movies have cameos by Bruce Campbell, first a wrestling announcer, second a theatre usher and lastly a restaurant matradee.


Next up which will be the first Christmas themed movie and one I've not seen before.

Silent Night (2012)

I enjoyed this one. Yet again the past impinges on the present in this festive little bundle. McDowell perseveres with dat murican accent he's so lovingly crafted all dese years whilst the claret in decent amounts.
Yes, it clunks a fair bit but tis the season .... Festive Demon !!!
