The movie stars James McClusky, Nik Kaneti-Dimmer, Chris Wilson and Martyn Eade.
“Don’t look for oodles of plot in Ravenstein […] It’s also way overlong and many scenes outstay their welcome (often a problem with one writer/producer/director gigs). But oh goodness there’s also so much to love about it […] So yes, this is a very good film. Shorter and tighter edits would have made it a great one, but it’s a movie Ghost should be proud of.” Dark Eyes of London
” …a testament of how a healthy dose of creativity, cinematic ingenuity and a good helping of genre-savvy can overcome the limitations of an admittedly neglectable budget, as the film tells a character-based story rather than relying purely on spectacle, makes perfect use of its rundown location and presents us with a rather original monster that’s only gradually revealed throughout the movie for full effect…” Search My Trash
“While far from perfect, Ravenstein is a load of fun and it was obviously made by people who liked the genre and wanted to make a film that would be fun to watch. They managed to make it look good, have a decent score and put a creature, kills and blood on display. There’s even a transformation scene and a monster versus chainsaw showdown.” Voices from the Balcony
