Not all of the tales are memorable but overall The Best British Horror 2014 is an agreeable, worthwhile anthology.
The body count is huge, the dialogue abysmal, the story perfunctory at best, yet the enthusiasm ensures it's never tiresome.
An excellent study in its own right, well researched, informative and intelligently written in a clear, presentable style.
Nothing but fun is to be had here, the film a catalogue of gore and nudity posing as a behind-the-scenes survey of SFX techniques.
The upbeat tone is maintained so thoroughly that, even when the blood rises in gouts, it doesn't dampen the lightheartedness.
In conversation with Paul Hyett on his directorial debut, The Seasoning House, and the transition from SFX to directing.
