|This film was an official selection at the 10th annual International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival in Phoenix in 2014. Here's an index to my reviews of 2014 films.|
Needless to say, the effects work here is one of the strongest aspects of the film, as he has his day job for a reason. I didn't buy all of the effects, but there are some superbly freaky ones here generated from the freaky central character that the script couldn't quite manage to otherwise bring to life. Edward Mordrake seems to have a blessed life, given that he has an apparently important job in the City of London, he can jog out of his apartment right onto the Millennium Bridge and his friends at work have set him up with a lovely young lady called Cindy. However, he has a serious problem and, from his twitching toupée, it has something to do with the back of his head. He's about to get a goodnight kiss from his date when her roaming hand reaches the nape of his neck and he reacts violently, running away from her, even leaving his jacket behind, to track down a phone box and ring a strange man who meets him, throws a hood over his head and drags him into a building. There's surely mystery here.
