Stars: James Nes­bitt, Kate Dickie

Di­rec­tor: Colm Mc­carthy

Avail­able: Oct 20 on DVD It’s hard to tell what’s more grim in this tire­some Scot­tish-set oc­cult hor­ror – the bleak coun­cil es­tate set­ting, the un­even mess of gen­res it tries to es­tab­lish it­self in, or the noth­ing film­mak­ing. Ev­ery­where ac­tor James Nes­bitt stars as a blood­thirsty hunter try­ing to track down his one-time squeeze and their mu­tant off­spring, who seems to have some mag­i­cal beastie pow­ers. Some in­ter­est­ing el­e­ments but the film­mak­ing leaves a bit to be de­sired.

Ex­tras: ★ ★ A pretty good be­hind-the-scenes fea­turette. In­ter­views, plot­ting, char­ac­ter and back­story chat­ter serve as a mak­ing-of.
