    The Void

    Its worth a watch, but this could have been so much more. Way too much left not explained, plot holes, lack of motivation for some stuff happening. However its still not bad. Kind of HellRaiser, meets Re-animator, meets the Thing. Definite nod to Lovecraft, but not Lovecraft.

    Don't forget this was crowdfunded by Indiegogo, which raised just over $80,000 - that's not a lot of money to make any film! It's worth watching the extras, particularly the Director's commentary, in which he talks about the various scenes and the very short amount of time that it had to filmed in - I think it was something silly like 3 days!

    He mentioned that the special effects took up much of the budget, and that if there had been more money available, it would've looked better and had some extra scenes in too. I think there were a few of the fans who had funded the film helped out on it for nothing, including the disjointed contortionist creature later in the film. For such a low budget, I commend them for trying. I've watched it 3 times now, and don't regret the tenner that the Bluray cost, as its content is just the sort of horror I like (H.P. Lovecraft/JohnCarpenter). I believe Carpenter's name was mentioned only once during the commentary! The two guys who made it said that they weren't out to copy any other films, it's just that when you're writing a story and improvising it for the screen, it just turns out that way sometimes. It's base story is certainly very Assault On Precinct 13

    I agree that it could have been so much more, but it was just a cost issue apparently.

    I think they managed a lot, but they left way too much unexplained. For instance who were the two guys at the beginning, why were they at that house, why did they kill the girl, why hunt the boy. What did they know and how, why did they take the book. The folks at the hospital well they were dumped into it. The Dr had a lot of followers, a bit more about that would have been useful to know, as well as exactly what he was doing and how. The discussions about the first creature encounter were lacking.... it just didn't feel like how real life would be.

    I think the creature effects were very good, but more about the creatures would have been useful to know. At least in Lovecraft there is a backstory a mythos to fill in the gaps.

    My criticism is really not aimed at the acting, which was pretty good, or the effects just the story was lacking a bit.

    Still worth a watch for 5, cost of the DVD.

    That is a pretty good film, for a found footage style. Seen it twice now, enjoyed it more second time round.
