Lord of Tears: Embarassing
This was a recommendation, it was suggested to me that this looked like it could potentially be scary stuff! It was not, it truly truly wasn't.
Lord Of Tears is one of those horrors that thinks it's a lot smarter than it actually is, an over convoluted plot, an arthouse look and student film level quality.
An English horror I'm surprised just how much I walked away disliking the film, some of the visuals are adequate but there is just no substance, lackluster performances and honestly the plot is a mess.
I like the concept I do, but it was utilized so incompetently it left the film a barely watchable embarassment.
I'm not a great lover of British cinema at the best of times but this is British cinema in the hands of people who have no place in the industry.
Certainly one to avoid.
Visual effects are quite good in places
Acting is sub-par
Comes across like a bad arthouse film
At several points I did actually ask myself what the hell I was watching
Plot is seven shades of awful
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
No accent grinds on me more than a Scottish one
You can stay in the Mansion featured in the film for just under 400 British pounds per night
