(2014) Directed by David V.G. Davies
A bizarre black comedy feature centred around 3 characters – Karl: Once a romantic charming fellow, now Mr. Nobody, a drifter in life… The Burglar: A well-mannered gentleman who’s robbing Karl of his money and valuable belongings… and Pauline: Karl’s ex-girlfriend, a stuck-up upper class snobby bitch who has no regards for people and things, is oblivious to all things happening in front of her.
This is not your average burgling story, those characters when they interact with one another it produces some bizarre, weird and interesting moments and conversations that you’d not expect to happen! The type of film that would make you go: “Hang on, they didn’t just do or say that? Did I see what I just saw? I need to watch this again.” Karl is a very simple, easy-going guy, living life from day to day, no ambitions, no goals, no future, a drifter, a stick in the ocean controlled by its current taking him to wherever it wants, he ONLY started to think more about life and how it’s precious and valuable when he’s getting burgled and being a matter of life and death situation!
(2010) Directed by Jason Impey
An amorous couple finish making out. They decide to entertain each other by telling scary stories about the notorious exploits of local serial killers.
First , most tense, and gripping vignette, “Tormented” – Lovely young Faye (a credible and sympathetic performance by the fetching Helen Clifford) gets abducted and severely manhandled by the angry and deadly Robert (excellently essayed with savage and frightening intensity by Rami Hilmi). This particular yarn packs a pretty strong punch, largely to Robert’s unexpectedly poignant back story and the sturdy acting by the two leads.
“Think global, kill local.”
