The mar­ket­ing bigs up the name of ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Ben Wheat­ley but the pres­ence of Michael Smi­ley and a shud­der of Bri­tish pas­toral weird­ness aside, there’s lit­tle of his im­print on this low-bud­get hor­ror.

A squad of sol­diers stum­bles upon an aban­doned tank in a war­zone. Soon they’re faced with es­ca­lat­ing psy­cho­log­i­cal melti­ness that soon be­comes crush­ingly dull. Cheat­ing you of an­swers and mis­tak­ing night­mare logic for true ten­sion, a pile-up of poor sto­ry­telling choices ul­ti­mately frus­trates.

Ex­tras None. Nick Setch­field
