Disappointing ! 🙁
I was given the great opportunity to attend this screening last night
of 'Don't Let Him In' at the BAFTA Theatre in London & will say I was
truly privileged to have been there & thankful indeed to Kelly & Mike
for the invite. I truly mean that.
But on the basis of the film: I have to say I was very disappointed
with the final results after 80 minutes
Firstly I found the sound to be very boomy (cheap sounding) in parts &
the mix could have been a lot better, considering the time spent on the
film & in my opinion the premise itself although promising on the
tag-line lacked somewhat in terms of story & characterisations.
I really did not connect with ANY of the characters on screen or cared
if they were hacked to bits. I feel no matter what genre it is, there
has to be some audience connection with the characters, even with low
budget classics such as Halloween or Friday 13th etc, all had pretty
much wooden characters there true, but there was something elusive or
tangible about them or the atmosphere present in the film itself which
this film sadly lacked in abundance…sorry!
I am truly sorry to write this, but I believe in giving my own
'personal opinion' & is nothing more &..of course I will have many
others who may or may not agree with me..C'est La vie.
I will positively say that the editing was pretty much spot on & some
of the visual effects were quite good for this genre but I just did not
feel any 'real' atmosphere or feel on the edge of my seat. A couple of
jumps here & there but they're quite easy to pull of in any horror film
So to conclude: A good idea for a synopsis/treatment but unfortunately
was not conceived well. Shame!
