Shame

direc­tor Daniel Simp­son didn’t re­sist pro­duc­tion com­pany de­mands to adopt the found- footage for­mat. For be­neath the tired tropes, there’s an in­ter­est­ing film strug­gling to get out here.

It takes in­spi­ra­tion from 1980’ s in­fa­mous UFO sight­ings in Rendle­sham For­est, but fast­for­wards to the present day as three trea­sure hun­ters en­ter the spooky Suffolk wood, con­stantly squab­bling be­fore pre­dictably get­ting lost. Danny Shayler’s Jake is so ir­ri­tat­ing you can’t wait for him to be eaten by bug- eyed aliens.

It concludes with some nifty CE3K- style py­rotech­nics, and you can only won­der about what might’ve been if they’d left that bloody cam­era at home.

Mak­ing Of; deleted scenes; mu­sic video. Stephen Jewell
