27/09/14 Don't Blink (2014)

A group of friends go on holiday to a fancy lodge hotel out in the middle of nowhere then things turn a bit creepy and the vacation turns bollock shaped.

Yeah, I know, shockingly unexpected set-up for a spooky film, eh?

However, unlike almost every film ever made that starts out like that, it doesn't go down the expected slasher route or rely on gore over plot. It's much more of a mystery than a horror, never really offering any resolution to the central question of what's happening to the people who are disappearing, but the ambiguity works in its favour.

Also it's good to see a film like this where most of the cast are well into their thirties or forties rather than the usual teenage arseholes.
