Edwards is also delivering a Masterclass in the evening. Not sure what the crack is here but I imagine he’ll deconstruct a number of scenes from the film.


mum and dad thoughts

November 3, 2008

Attended Mayhem Horror Film Festival at the broadway cinema over the weekend. Went to see Steven Sheil’s debut feature film Mum and Dad. It was made under the Microwaves scheme for only £100,000.

EM Media put some money into it as well .

Looks fantastic (shot on HD), really strong performances throughout. I am not particularly a horror film fan so was a little apprehensive, especially as it kept being described as ‘brutal’ to me by people who’d seen it at the Edinburgh film festival.

It is in it’s ideas that the brutality is apparent rather than the physical/technical execution. Go and see it when released on Boxing Day. There are a number of reviews of the film out and about already so track one down.
