  1.  Superb!!!

    Posted: 

    This is a fantastic concept of one of the most inspired horrors ever to be made.

    The acting is first rate and William Dafoe steals every single scene he is in.

    If you fancy a creepy night in and want to see something fresh and heart pounding. Watch this.

  2.  Based on a short story......

    Clive Barker wrote this back in the 80s I believe and there it sat in the minds of his readers. I confess I have not read the story but I have read other works by Clive and I have to say this film was very well thought up thanks to the director , writer collaboration.

    The reviews above slam it for being lacklustre. But you have to remember Barker is not about quick gore payoffs, obvious chase scenes.

    His work is all about character build ups and dark personalities forcing their way out during times of dytopic suburban nightmares.

    The pacing was what I expected, slow, creepy and intense. Not too slow in my opinion but others may find it so. Depends what you want from horror. I loved Silent Hill as well for it's surreal nightmare and intense choking threat.

    The train forever leading down, down into a chasm of the inexplicable mind that is Barker. I thought Vinnie played the silent nightmare well despite being recognisable. Look at his face, you can't get a more beaten up (rugby player) look from an actor playing a monster. Boris Karloff anyone.

    I recomend this film for it's superb photographic direction as well as creepy vibe overall.

    The story itself needs a little more clue in but other parts leave an educated audience to discover the nightmare for themselves.

    BUY IT!!!!

  3.  Maxell 8 GB Portable Hard Drive is excellent

    Posted: 

    I have had this now for at least 5 wks and love it. I take it everywhere as I can fit so much onto this little guy. I can drag and use this as an portable external hardrive it is so easy to use. I can transfer more than 30 albums at once from PC to laptop and thousands of jpgs. Impressive as my last USB stick was only 256 MB.

    I do not use the software given but just open up the "my documents" section straight from plug in and share away.

    Would recomend for the price to anyone who wants a large portable USB.

    Only slight problem of getting hot on some transfers and not others but soon cools down.

    Looks stylish too. I got this off Play for 30 quid in the sale at the time. Bargain for 8GB.

    Recomended.
