(au) wrote: Brooding thirteen year and her family move into a house that is unknowingly very much haunted. Based on a "true story", a quick wikipedia check seems to indicate the plot is somewhat different to the actual source, but director Pat Holden claims to be the nephew of one of the persons who experienced what is considered Britain's worst poltergeist haunting, and has wanted to make this project ever since he was a child. Sadly, the film doesn't live up to the worst of anything. It often plays out like horror for young adults, often being uncomfortably silly. It does have some jumpy moments, but there is nothing new. Some scenes awkwardly aim for humour, others explore teen angst, which with the help of young Natash Connor's haunting performance, do work and provide the film with its best moments.

(it) wrote: Wow, what an all around perfect film. The performances are top notch, the script is as clever as any Quentin Tarantino film and the characters themselves are fascinating. You will be on the edge of your seat perplexing who could have stolen the leads. It is a very quick hour and 40 minutes, so hold on because it's a wild ride. All around not to be missed, unless you can't stand movies without sex, drugs and violence or don't like hearing constant strong profanity.
(ca) wrote: Cyberpunk SciFi cult classic from the great Richard Stanley that does have a decent amount of influence taken from other SciFi projects of the era, but comes off as a nicely wrapped tight fresh product. In a near dystopia version of the future, where finding scrap technology is the gold of the day a scavenger brings pieces of a cyborg into town that pose more of a threat than anyone is aware of. The special effects look great with a dirty realism look that will leave you grasping from time to time with balls to the walls violent deaths and how the cyborg operates. Shock ending is a nice touch that will also leave you feeling why more horror films don't mix it up.

(mx) wrote: Although this movie was based on real life and it was inspiring, as it showed us that winning a football game or football championship isn't everything, and the cast was great, I found the acting to be lacking. And the movie was weak.
(de) wrote: A well crafted, engaging storyline anchored by solid performances from its leading trio. The Keeping Room recovers from getting off to slow start by building up just enough suspense to keep you watching. But there's hardly enjoyable as the movie is bleak and disturbing with the brutality of the war.
