With a terrific cast that managed to deliver some terrific performances, alongside one of the most respected film directors of all time, adapting one of the most iconic horror films of all time, it actually falls a little flat.
Children of Men 9/01/15
For such a quintessentially British film, it was largely ignored, and I genuinely feel as though this is amongst the greatest British films ever made, so I can't understand how it didn't sweep the majority of categories.
The Pact 9/01/15
How this film holds a 5.8 score on IMDb will be one of the biggest mysteries of my life I think, for I found this film to contain very few points of merit, and this has to be the most boring film I have watched all year.

This Swedish, BAFTA nominated vampire film, is without a shadow of a doubt one of the greatest horror films ever made, in fact, it's one of the greatest films ever made regardless of country of origin, or whatever genre it conforms to.
