GARAGE Directed by Lenny Abrahamson. Starring Pat Shortt, Anne-Marie Duff, Conor Ryan, John Keogh, Don Wycherley
A virus turns Texans into zombies. Rodriguez’ agreeably moronic horror film moves at a cracking pace and features plenty of good jokes. There are amusing extras on the two-disc package, but we have still to see all those spoof trailers on DVD. Hurry up with the Grindhouse boxed-set, Messrs Weinstein. DC 15 cert Abrahamson reunites with Adam & Paul screenwriter Mark O’Halloran for a haunting Irish rural drama. Shortt’s acting is revelatory, as he inhabits the central role of a lonely, good-natured social misfit who unwittingly triggers a crisis in his life.
