Film Review: MERCY CHRISTMAS (2017)


MERCY CHRISTMAS *** USA 2017 Dir: Ryan Nelson. 83 mins

Christmas-loving, downtrodden office schmoe Steven Hubbell – the kind of endearing loser who buys an extension lead for his Secret Santa gift – gets a welcome reprieve from a huge festive workload in the shape of beautiful blonde Casey O’Keefe. An invite to her family Christmas dinner results in a grim scenario telegraphed by the fact that his surname is “Brisket”.

Film Review: THE NIGHT OF THE VIRGIN (2016)


THE NIGHT OF THE VIRGIN **** Spain 2016 Dir: Roberto San Sebastian. 116 mins


A 21st century splatter movie of escalating lunacy, the feature debut for Roberto San Sebastian cleverly invokes and subverts an array of familiar mainstream horror tropes. At heart, it’s a wilfully perverse spin on the American teen comedy premise of a hopeless male protagonist on a desperate mission to lose his virginity – here meshed with a nightmarishly claustrophobic yet hilarious spin on the common 80’s AFTER HOURS plot of the ordinary guy unwittingly wandering into a single night of urban chaos. The hopeless, gawky virgin in question is sweaty, rat-faced Javier Bodalo, whose miserable New Year’s Eve failing to get a shag ends with him lured back to the apartment of a middle-aged woman worryingly named “Medea”.
