DisappointingBy zombiegrrrl (18 reviews) from Newport, IOW , 07 Nov 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]I really wanted to like this film as I loved the book. But it really disappointed me.
Some of the 'gore' looks really good but some of the other effects just arnt up to scratch.
The middle of the film was pretty slow and none of the charecters were that likable.
I think I may of enjoyed this more if I hadnt of read the books.

Was Expecting More!!!By Hex13 (6 reviews) , 20 Dec 2012The book was really good, and was looking forward to seeing the film. I have to be honest though, i found the film slow, and not particulary scary. I tried very hard to like the film, but found myself looking forward to the credits. Its not that its a rubbish film, its just that it wasnt very engaging, and i felt that the characters were not very engaging, the only exception being Clive Russels charcter, who was suitably evil.
Classic Clive BarkerBy Labrat1807 (3 reviews) , 30 Jul 2012This film is everything I expect from a Barker adaptation. Twisted, nightmarish and gruesome, Barker's love of blood abounds here. If you like Barker stories, you will love this - end of.
a little slowBy smokeychops (670 reviews) from newcastle under lyme , 13 Jul 2012It is an ok film a little slow. Not bad story. I was expecting it to be better than it was. There are better horror films out there than this one.
OkBy a customer from Ipswich , 27 Jan 2012This film was OK, but didn't quite warrant 3 stars. The storyline isn't great, but the acting OK, and effects were quite good. This is a watchable film though, though not very scary! And anyone that's read the story might like to see it.
