This review by Paul –all part of my 31 Days of Horror.

Send me your horror film reviews.

You’ll have to bear with me here readers, this is a hidden gem! I found it on Halloween night after a nights graft in the pub. I came home, feet throbbing, mind far too sober for a friday night, and slammed on the magic Virgin TV box-thingy in the corner with lots of flashing lights.

‘Lets check out the 99p offers shall we?’ I suggested to myself, had a vote, and won.

This was the one that drew my eye instantly. I love Snoop, dont get me wrong, but I’ve never really given him much wieght as an actor (see Mr. Bones or Dr. Bones, it’s so shit I can’t remember the title). I paid my money, made me smoke, cracked the stella and settled down.

It was ace.

The film opens with a fantastic anime sequence, lasting about 10 mins if memory serves me right (regular readers will know that my eyes kinda go quite frequently). It was really top quality and so unexpected I couldnt take my eyes off the screen. Jaw dropping stuff, even Manga Snoop looked a nice balance of cool/evil/unspoken threatening. Then the film moved into the next phase, live action filming, but the film has an old style quality to it. The three interlinking ‘short scary stories from The Hood’ have the look of the 70’s Twilight Zone:The Movie. Bright jumpers, off-colour orange everywhere, ya know?

To be honest, I was outta phase when the live action was on, like stepping through the Time Tunnel, but each story was interspersed with more anime, a story within a story (I see plans within plans). Wish I could tell you more, but I can’t. Take my word for it, it was 99p and it really kicked arse. Seek it out.

It was a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there…
