Wild Side Cinema review: ‘doesn’t offer much in the way of story or answers but director Bob Keen (Hellraiser) makes up for that by heaping on the gore and quasi-biblical jibber jabber’

Popcorn Pictures review: a pretty dire slasher film which had a lot of promise (come on, a serial killer who rips out hearts with his bare hands has to be a win-win for a horror fan) but is completely ruined by the killer. Shut him the hell up, give him a bit more mystery and presence and maybe we’ve got a different film. The decent gore effects are so wasted in this film.
