Comments

Soda Pictures DVD transfer of Dartmoor Killing,  a new low-budget horror-thriller looks marvelous - top tier for the the SD format. Hotties Gemma-Leah Devereux and Rebecca Night (Susan and Becky) venture onto the moors discovering more than the predictable mysterious horror that awaits them.

The image quality, coupled with the fog-shrouded settings and Nick Dance cinematography look nothing short of spectacular in the lesser format - on a beautiful, dual-layered, anamorphic, 2.35:1 disc. There are no subtitles and only 2 trailers and an extensive stills gallery as extras on the region 2 - PAL disc.

A promising film dissolves distancing from its impressive beginnings. But an intriguing title, brilliant visuals, and a decent premise (psychological thriller underpinned by a friendship tragically exposed) add some value to this underachieving mystery involving trust, survival and personal damage.

Those more-forgiving may end up enjoying the thick atmosphere and pleasing performances finding this worthy of a spin some late night - director Nicholson shows promise venturing away from his competence (award winning) in documentaries. Let's see some more!
