Hello all,
I have just been sent and watched"The Blackout"and i loved it!Its a horror film that to me really harped back to the great low budget of the 80's,had a real "Deadly Spawn"feel to it,I've just thought i haven't got that,must get it!
The strory revolves around a tower block in Los angeles on christmas eve,we see lots of individuals in various apparments getting ready in their own way for christmas day.
Then things start to fall from the sky causing several powercuts throughout the city and apparment block,
A resident goes down into the basement and find out what happening,MISTAKE!!
This is where we see the first of the"Creatures that only come out in the dark and start feeding and boy do they start feeding!This has on the uk been given"18"certificate and it's easy to see why as it does not skimp on the gore.
You do get to relate to the characters really well and this makes the suspense and impending doom all the more relevant,a great little horror on a low budget all the budget really never shows with some great creature fx and bucket loads of gore,so if you love your creature features with plenty of suspense and gore this is for you!
You can buy this dvd now on amazon-
